Aprilia Unveils the 2013 RSV4 Factory WSBK Machine [Photo Gallery]
Though the bike itself does not appear much changed on the outside, it will definitely be much different on the inside, as far as setups are concerned. With Biaggi's long-term involvement with Aprilia, the factory used to cater for his tiniest desires so the SBK machine was pretty much his.
Now, with two riders which have already showed a lot of brawn on the track, things should start anew. Eugene Laverty has really grown into a good rider in Biaggi's shadow and his last season 6th placement promises a lot for the oncoming season, while the French Sylvain Guintoli (7th in 2012 on a Ducati) is also looking forward to a very good 2013.
The bike has been a good one until now, and with the new team we might expect an even better racing season.
