Aprilia to launch mid-sized sportsbike by 2012

Piaggio Chairman outlines company plans for the next three years

PIAGGIO CHAIRMAN Roberto Colaninno yesterday unveiled the corporation's business strategy for the next three years, with plans for Aprilia to develop a number of middleweight sportsbikes.

In Europe Colaninno said the company will focus on accentuating the different brand name missions of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, and Derbi.

In the Americas, the Group intends to work on the growth of different brand names, also through the development of sport bikes
with mid-sized engines.

That could mean we won't see a middleweight Aprilia until after it's been launched to US customers. Either way, the machines will be an exciting addition to the existing UK middleweight market.
