Biaggi-rep Aprilia RS4

Special RS4 to celebrate Max's current lead in the WSB championship

NO, it's not an RSV4R but the learner-spec RS4 125 and RS50 that are the latest in Aprilia's line-up to get the “Biaggi-rep” treatment, apparently celebrating that Max is currently leading the WSB championship.

Set to appear in dealers in June (is there some subliminal pressure on Biaggi here? He'd better still be leading the championship when the bikes actually arrive...) the Biaggi-reps get the black-and-red paintwork you see here, plus on the 125 there are wavy disc brakes, Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres, a quickshifter and a single-seat cowl as standard.

Despite £600-worth of extras, it costs only £200 more than the stock RS4 125 (£4299 instead of £4099).
