how come aprillia doesn't run their rsv mille in world superbike? isn't it comparable with the ducati? i read in sportrider that it has flat spots unless you are running over 7k rpm so i guess that might be a reason...
but still...aprillia does pretty well in moto gp 125 and 250 class

they did for a bit there as I can remember. They decided to focus on Moto GP instead as most companies did and now that's where they are now.

If I recall correctly, Troy Corser finished third in his first year on the Mille in 2000. No mean feet considering the bike was in its second year of development. I think he finished fourth in his second year on the bike, but don't hold me to it.

Aprilia opted out of WSBK to focus their money and development in MotoGP on the RS Cube. Troy went to Foggy Petronas to develop the triple that you now see.
