Default Details on Aprilias new V4 power plant

In case anyone (other than me) is interested...

Aprilia.com

The horse power jump over the existing v-twin is insane. My understanding is that the engine is compact enough to fit into the RSV 250 frame.

Looks sweet. I'd love to see the Tuono with this motor! Hell, their current twin is wonderful too.

Like it was designed by God himself.

Much like Pamela Anderson before the Tommy Lee days..........

I think that Pamela was actually designed by Dow Chemical.

That would be fun!

So what it is with the manufacturers? Is that brownish/bronze color for the engine colors the fashion this year? This looks just like the YamaStar VMaxII engine.

Yeah, but I don't think it'll run too good with those little short pipes, and man, won't it be too loud? Oops, just hit myself in the forehead with my toungue stud again, ousch! Where's my Monster Energy Cap?
