Technology, style, innovation and passion: these are the watchwords which have taken Aprilia from humble beginnings in an artisan’s workshop at the end of the 60’s to the cutting edge of European motorcycle production, with a complete range of bikes from 50 to 1000cc.
Aprilia has always distinguished itself in the motorcycling world by introducing the most important technological innovations, like the first catalytic converter for scooters, the first water cooling system for 125cc bikes, the revolutionary V60 motor, the clean technology of the electronically injected Ditech engine, and the fuel injected twin cylinder in the off road sector. Equally it has beaten its own path as regards style and colours, and has introduced completely new segments, like Scarabeo.
And throughout, Aprilia has constantly enriched its experience in the competitive sphere, winning 200 sparkling victories and 26 world titles in the 125 and 250cc trail and superbike divisions. And on the way a veritable school of champions has emerged, opening the doors of success to some of the greatest motorcyclists in the world, including Rossi, Biaggi, Capirossi, Melandri and Poggiali.
Such a deep commitment to racing has facilitated the development of the best possible technological solutions, all of which have found their way into the Aprilia product range.
