Aprilia Concept

EXCERPT
"Paul and I were offered an Aprilia Mille chassis with a brief to come up with some concepts by Aprilia US. From a number of loose sketches this design was proposed and is currently half-way through modelling."

that sketch was done back in 2002, it has been a project bike in the process of never being completed for 3 years now ;)

Huh... I was digging around trying to figure out what these new Aprilia models were going to look like and I must have stumbled on an old concept. Of course, everything was put on hold during the Piaggio buyout and we are starting to see "old concepts" like MG's Norge showing up.

That wasnt an Aprilia SPA concept, it was something the former AUSA marketing manager did by himself with Paul but unfortuneatly like so many ideas and concepts that is as far as it got :)

Looks like a Yamaha MT01...but if the sketch was done in 02 the MT01 wasn't on the market.
