I read somewhere in the racing section Thomas Berglund is doing it on a berg. He is an inmate now.

Hearing good news through the grapevine in Aprilia's effort for 2010, highlights include;
  • New dedicated manager for the rally project, coming in from engineering
  • A major sponsor to be signed next month
  • Plans to have at least 17-20 bikes on the start
  • Figures being named of up to 40 bikes in total
  • Engine update with 7bhp extra without reliability issues!
  • A 20kg ligther bike
  • Design to be done by Behego for new tank setup
  • New swingarm
  • And a few more thingies...

Might hold off on that Yaktmhon kit and go Italian if I were some of you :)

Prices will run similar to what Yamaha with the JVO kit and Honda Europe would be offering is my understanding.

This new Aprilia might close the gap to KTM's 450RR and be more dedicated then Honda or Yamaha effort..

Got myself a new set of Michelin Deserts from Pal Anders' mechanic Vlado today. Snatched the opportunity for a chat. He's now busy completing the KTM 450 EXC-R Factory Edition with a Mecasystems kit - solely made for the Sardegna rally. After that it's for sale. Talk about tailormaking for the challenging euro-enduro terrain tracks at Sardegna.



It has a separate gearbox and crankcase oil setup. Originally with only 0,6litre of engine oil ( That's Zero-point-Six litre, yes... ) now being expanded to at least a litre or so more. And a few other mods to make it rally-raid ready.

Gorgeous bikes, but 20kg (44 lbs) -lighter- with no reliability issues?

The kilograms will not be coming from the engine, but a redesign off the exhaust, roadbook frame/holder, tank thickness and setup, moving from 2 separate fuel pumps to a single setup serving from a small 'feeder' tank etc...

I assumed as much - I was more referring to the fact that the rest of the bike has shown reliability problems (cracked frames / broken suspension) and 20kg(!) seems like allot of material to be trimming from an already high-spec bike.

Like I said the Aprilias are gorgeous. I do hope they can pull it off.
