FPT INDUSTRIAL AND APRILIA TAKE TO THE TRACK FOR THE MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
FPT Industrial loves a challenge, and that's why they decided to compete together with Aprilia Racing and become official partner of the Noale-based racing department for the MotoGP World Championship. The two brands have performance, reliability and power in common, not to mention advanced research and a love of competition at the highest technological level.
The FPT Industrial logo is set to make its on-track début on the new Aprilia RS-GP bikes, ridden by Aleix Espargaró and Bradley Smith, starting 19 July for the Spanish Grand Prix, scheduled to be held on the Jerez circuit. The logo will accompany the bikes, riders and the entire Aprilia Racing Team throughout a season which, for obvious reasons, promises to be extremely competitive down to the final checkered flag.
As they wait for the action to begin, the many Aprilia fans and all the motoring enthusiasts who refer to the FPT Industrial world had the chance to take a “virtual” test ride on the new Aprilia MotoGP bike in the Powered by FPT version, riding it around the Mugello circuit.
In fact, from 23 through 30 May, thousands of aspiring Grand Prix rider had their chance, in a video game set up specifically for the purpose, to challenge the famous e-gamer, eleghost555, doing their best to beat his lap time on the prestigious and difficult Tuscan track.
