Does anyone have any information on the 2008 Aprilia 450MX bike and is it going to be AMA legal?

So who will field the 450mxer for Aprilia in the MX/SX series?

Yes progress is being made certainly. Chico Chiodi with his MXV has won an italian grand prix couple of weeks ago beating Philippaerts on his KTM. First race he got 2nd place, and 2nd race he won. Also scoring the fastest lap of the day.

I heard they were having big problems with getting it to turn as fast as the other bikes.

Have they shortened the swingarm etc...?

C'mon Chiodi couldn't beat a 1 legged man in an ass kicking contest
