Video: Aprilia USA in Space Shuttle tribute

Published: 08 July 2011

Aprilia’s USA division has released the following tribute to the now decommissioned space shuttle program. It’s essentially an RSV4 advert, but with enough heart-stopping shots of 81 million horsepower rockets to justify the association.

The Aprilia team says: “Crossing performance boundaries never thought possible and forging new frontiers in innovation… making and racing motorcycles wouldn't be entirely alien to the people that created a bridge between earth and space.”

Whether there’s room in Aprilia’s R&D department for any ex-NASA engineers remains to be seen.
