Win the ride of your life!
Win a place on the Aprilia RSV4 RF and Tuono V4 1100 RR launch – at Misano!
Prizes don’t get much more exclusive or exciting than this. MCN has teamed-up with Aprilia to offer one incredibly lucky MCN reader the chance to win a full riding place at the European riding launch of the new RSV4 RF and Tuono V4 1100 RR.
If you’re the lucky winner, you will be one of the very first riders in the world to ride both these new Aprilia models. And as if that wasn’t enticing enough, the launch is taking place at the world-famous Misano circuit, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really get to grips with these hedonistic new Aprilias in the country of their birth.
Your flights, accommodation, fuel and sustenance will all be taken care of, and you’ll even get a disc full of images of your time on track – just like MCN’s Michael Neeves, whom you’ll be sharing the track with – as a memento of the launch.
