I like the fact that they're making fun of that stupid/inane BMW vid, but I really don't think they're currently in the best position to claim they're all about winning, since Biaggi has only recently bagged a few wins for them, and a couple of those--at Miller--were gifted to them by Checa's privateer Althea Ducati, which, up until it quit with an electrical issue, was kicking the factory Aprilia's *ss.

So Ducati should retalitate with a video that pulls the table out from under the cloth and dishware leaving it to levitate for 5 seconds before crashing to the ground.

OK, another double-win at another "non-Aprilia" track - Misano. Eigth win for Biaggi this year. Leader in the rider points, and leader in the manufacturer points - with only two bikes fielded. BMW has 5 fielded, Ducati, 7. Are we in position to claim yet?


Yes, I have two RSV's - both track ho's.

They can claim it when the Championship is Biaggi's in fact.

That's a great video.

I have no other witty comment to add.

Actually, Misano is *THE* Aprilia track: after showing so poorly at it last year, the factory selected it as their test track, and they have considerable experience with it and an excellent, one-off, Misano-only set-up for the bike--which they put to excellent use this past weekend.

Without question, Biaggi will put up an impressive win total for this season--he's a virtual lock for at least one win at Brno--his personal BFF track--and very likely to do the double. But, as Duc touches upon, let's see at least a c'ship--and preferably several multi-win seasons--before laying claim to being all about winning in what has always been the de facto "Ducati Cup" series, and right after a season where Yamaha won fully half of the season's races, and a large number of pole positions, on the way to the c'ship.

Has Biaggi taken pole on the Aprilia? Time to dig....I don't remember seeing him up in P1 but I'm not fully awake yet.

Max had the pole in Monza. Crutchlow is the only multi-pole man with three in 2010.

Where does it actually say Aprilia RSV4? It says, 'winning is our trick, Aprilia', look at history and they're right, the RSV4 is now working on it's reputation...
