Dear Santa...

Dear Santa...

We know what you're thinking...

Surely if the standard RSV4 with 200bhp struggles to be reliable...with 250...erm...it's gonna explode so hard it'll register on the richter scale, right?

Well you're probably right. But who cares when it looks this good. Aprilia has unleashed this extra power thanks to the use of pneumatic valves and an 81mm overbore that's equivalent to the MotoGP machine. It'll be utter lunacy and with the Aprilia electronics package it'll probably be pretty usable to boot

Pneumatic valves give this motor a screaming redline and 250bhp power figure

So how much is it?

Well, if you have to ask... (we'd guess it'll be around £170,000)

Considering the level of spec and the engineer Aprilia will send along to your trackays, that's not too bad. We'll take three.

  • Tim - the oldies were saying this back in 1992 with the first Honda FireBlade. Although I see where you're coming from. Perhaps the future is forced induction?
