Scott's a good privateer to have as a partner. The Aprilia will be a good bike in that class. Glad he's got a seat for 2009. Shame on Kawi for not being forthright and telling him weeks ago that he was being booted to the curb.

Glad something became available to S.Rapp. Hes a good rider and deserves it. Funny thing is I used to help Brett Ray when he was based out of WPB with R&R racing stands. Good luck to all these guys, hopefully they will beable to show up their old teams.

Power to weight is not a hard concept. That Aprilia is easily 415lbs and puts out about 120hp un-modified. Seems like a pretty even contest suddenly, huh?

It's called 'volumetric efficiency'. Look it up.

I think it will depend on the track more so than the VE, but it should be entertaining. I would tend to think the 600 have a higher top end, where as the vtwins will have the torque coming out of the turns.
