Laconi lands Aprilia GP four-stroke ride

1 of 1

Regis Laconi will ride the gorgeous Aprilia four-stroke GP bike in next season’s world championship.

It seems his one-off victory in last year’s final WSB round did him a truck load of favours.

He may only have finished 11th overall on the RSV, but the 26-year-old is rated by the factory.

He told MCN: " I saw the RS3 990 for the first time last week and couldn’t believe how incredible it looks. I’d be very happy to ride it next year. "

Laconi’s Aprilia four-stroke experience and his time on Dunlop tyres, plus his knowledge of the 16GP circuits gained with the Red Bull Yamaha team in 2000, will have helped sway Aprilia.
