New MCN September 30: Aprilia RSV4-R revealed

Published: 29 September 2009

In this week's issue of MCN, on sale September 30, we reveal all the details of the 'cheaper' Aprilia superbike, the Aprilia RSV4-R. The R version is £2500 cheaper than the factory model and is expected to go on sale late this year.

An insider at the Ducati factory reveals that MCN's computer-generated image of the new Multistrada is 'exactly right.'

Plus, our budget Paris-Dacre Rallye concludes at an off road track in Yorkshire. Off road god Simon Pavey puts the £1500 bikes through their paces and then our men try to match the time, with varying degrees of success.
