I heard the same thing from a guy who races Aprilias out of Greenville, SC (I think he runs an Aprilia dealership down there too). He told me that Aprilia is coming out with a Stage One and Stage Two engine upgrade kit (larger pistons, heads, throttle bodies, etc.) that promises a 10hp and 20hp increase respectively. Unlike Blackman's Stage One and Stage Two engine upgrade kit which requires them to bore and replate the cylinders, the Aprilia kit just replaces everything so presumably less mechanical/machineing error. His information was a bit sketchy, but he promised to keep me posted on any developments he hears. It certainly sounds VERY interesting to be sure!
