The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix was extraordinary for Aprilia and Italian motorcycles. With the second place of Stefan Bradl, Aprilia wins the 125cc constructors titles with two rounds remaining. A testimony to Aprilia’s technical supremacy, which in the last two seasons has bought the Noale based manufacturer 8 World Championships between constructors and riders.
Aprilia has won more World Championships that any other Italian marque. Aprilia now has accumulated 32 World Motorcycle Championship (15Constructor and 17 Riders) in the last 16 years and 251 Grand Prix victories in 125cc and 250cc class in less than 20 years.
“To win is always difficult but to confirm Aprilia’s authority like we have done over the past three seasons is impressive” said Leo Francesco Mercanti, Apilia CEO, “This championship is the efforts of the exceptional work of a team of professional technicians who are not only dedicated but passionate about what they do. In just a few years they have permitted a young brand like Aprilia to become a world force in motorcycle racing. I would like to thank the riders, teams and sponsors who have made this possible and this season have earned us this prestigious title and confirmed our status at the top.”
Giampiero Sacchi, Piaggio Sport Director, said, “This title confirms the professionalism of our racing division at Piaggio. Maintaining our winning status for this long is extremely rewarding. At the same time Aprilia continues to be a school for champions which provides winning motorcycles combined with young talent that offer the public a sporting spectacle in the 125cc and 250cc Grand Prix classes”.
