New MCN September 24: Aprilia's new RSV4 superbike revealed

1 of 1

In this week's MCN we reveal the full specs of the all-new Aprilia RSV4.

Aprilia has claimed the RSV4 will weigh an astounding 190kg fully fuelled - which is 25kg lighter than the current Honda Fireblade! Aprilia also plans to have won the WSB title within three years with the RSV4, so let's hope they're not being too optimistic with the weight figure!

This week, MCN also reveals Kawasaki's new 2009 motorcycles, with the new ZX-6R,  ER-6f/ER-6nVN1700 and KLX250, which will get fuel injection.

Also in this edition:

  • Experts predict that wearing a helmet that failed to score the maximum five stars in the SHARP tests could mean less compensation after a crash.
  • On the 60th anniversary of Honda, MCN talks to Shigeru Takagi, senior managing director of Honda Motoring Company Ltd.
  • Jonathan Rea leads the British charge on World Superbikes as he signs for Ten Kate Honda in WSB
  • MCN has a chat with Nicky Hayden about his move to Ducati for 2009
