Gallery: Milwaukee Aprilia team launch

1 of 5

As the first test of the 2017 Superbike World Championship got underway in Jerez this morning, the British-based Milwaukee Aprilia squad lifted the covers off the RSV4-RF Aprilia Eugene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori will race as the season gets underway at Phillip Island next month. 


Having switched from the BMW machinery they campaigned last year, the launch marks a new start for the Shaun Muir Racing outfit. The team had been keen to have more involvement from a manufacturer, and with the amount of Aprilia personnel in the garage at the team launch, including top dog Romano Albesiano, it looks like they may have just got their wish.
