Capirossi joined Aprilia race fans for a Mugello track day

Aprilia race fans in Italy got a surprise in May – turning up for one of Aprilia’s 2018 ‘Racers Days’ track days, they found no less than three-times World Champion Loris Capirossi sharing the pits with them.


Capirossi was there to take the RSV4 “out for a spin” on the spectacular Tuscany track and joined in with the enthusiasts in appreciation of all things Aprilia for the day.
Capirossi definitely appears to appreciate the RSV4, commenting “testing the RSV4 RF at Mugello was a fantastic experience. It's a really nice bike to ride, the feel is immediate, and the engine performs really well. You can feel the excellent connection with the throttle grip, and it’s extremely fast for a standard motorcycle - riding it brings a smile to your face, even for someone as experienced as me”.
‘Racers Days’ are Aprilia events that offer enthusiasts a total experience in the racing world of Aprilia. The calendar includes nine opportunities, up to September, to try out the exclusive Aprilia RSV4 RF and Tuono V4 1100 Factory on world-class circuits such as Misano, Mugello and Imola. For younger riders, the Tuono 125 is available, and for those who want to improve their performance on the track, in safe conditions, lessons are available at the Aprilia “Riding Academy”.
