    New bike with Aprilia V4 engine.

    What do you think of the new Dutch bike with a Aprilia V4 engine. It's 100% carbon frame. And 201hp. Total cost 150.000 Euro.

    Aprilia has said that they can have the Superbike engine in there upcoming race version. And they are talking to get there GP engine as well.
    They have 100% cooperation of Aprilia.

    Isn't that the silver thing right behind the front wheel?

    It's under the seat, like a Benelli Tornado.

    Oil cooler, of course.

    I don't like the Benelli Tre comparison. I prefer to say it is "like a Britten."

    Not to undermine the work that went into it but I would say this falls somewhere between the two, perhaps skewed towards the britten end a bit. The fact that it uses an established engine and likely most or all of the electronics that go with it puts it a big step beneath the britten imo in terms of effort and engineering that went into it.

    I was simply referring to the placement of the radiator--nothing else.

    Looks like they designed a classic wooden boat and tried to stick it on top the RSV4.
