The Spazio Broletto in Milan once again hosted Aprilia’s Superbike factory team launch where they officially presented to the press their 2013 rider line-up: Eugene Laverty who is will be starting his second year with the Italian manufactuer, and Sylvain Guintoli who will have the tough job of replacing Aprilia’s greatest rider, Max Biaggi, who gave the marque five World titles and 41 victories between World Superbikes and the 250cc class.
Both riders will not only have to defend Biaggi’s title, but also help Aprilia add another notch to the already 51 world championship titles that the manufacturer can proudly boast of.
The team’s 2013 is almost the same as last year’s, the unmistakable black and red paint job along with with some hints of the Italian tricolore flag, just to remember that the RSV4 Factory Superbike is Made in Italy.
