IMPORTANT CONFIRMATION FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE APRILIA MOTOGP PROJECT.
ALEIX: “MY MISSION IS TO TAKE THE RS-GP TO THE PODIUM”.
On the eve of the GP of France in Le Mans, the most important news for Aprilia is actually a long-awaited confirmation: Aleix Espargaró will be astride the Aprilia RS-GP in the 2019 and 2020 seasons as well. This consolidates a technical and sport project in which Aleix has participated enthusiastically from the first tests on the Italian bike in November 2016.
Aleix's confirmation guarantees further continuity to the still young, but increasingly more solid Aprilia project in the premier motorcycle racing class, with the goal of capitalising on the hard work done since their return to MotoGP and achieving those results which, since the latter part of last season, have appeared to be close on several occasions. An expert, skilled and technically savvy rider, Espargaró is one of the fundamental components of a development path which goes beyond just the sport aspect for Aprilia and the entire Piaggio Group. This is a path that aims to create a range of innovative products on the cutting-edge of technology and performance, worthy of the history and tradition of a brand like Aprilia.
