“Everyone is impressed with Aprilia”

The Aprilia sports new cylinder heads (fitted to the new 90-degree engine we first saw in Sepang 2020) giving more power and torque across the rev range, a new chassis wrapped around that engine, with two new exhausts poking out from new wing clad bodywork (high, low and medium downforce wings to choose from) and a new shape seat/tail unit above a new carbon fibre swingarm. Not much left of the original 2020 machine. Oh, and there’s a new rear start device to go with the front device they had last year. Aleix’s starts looked to be second only in speed and consistency to Jack Miller’s.
