5 October 2022 - Italian character, technology and innovation are just some of the values that bind DELLORTO and Aprilia Racing. A historical partnership, the creator of so many successes of the Italian manufacturer and today more than ever profitable in the MotoGP World Championship. With an RS-GP becoming increasingly competitive in the highest expression of motorcycling sport, the collaboration with top level technological players becomes crucial: every tenth can make a difference.
DELLORTO provides Aprilia Racing with all the experience of its almost 90 years of history, which has successfully traversed the evolution of technology also in the sports field. The throttle body, part of the fuel system of a modern MotoGP bike, allows the 1000cc Aprilia V4 to exceed 280 horsepower with a maximum rotation speed of over 18,000 rpm. Results that generate a record specific power for naturally aspirated engines.
Massimo Rivola - Aprilia Racing CEO: "The importance of engine performance in modern MotoGP is beyond question; after all, riders are never satisfied with the horsepower they have at their disposal! Our RS-GP, which stands out for its rideability and refined aerodynamics, can also count on a V4 engine that has reached incredible levels of power and reliability. The results clearly demonstrate this and reward the commitment of partners like DELLORTO, at our side in this challenging MotoGP World Championship where technology and innovation must always push the limits. With a touch of healthy and very Italian initiative."
Andrea Dell'Orto - Executive Vice President Dell'Orto S.p.a.:"Constant commitment, research and innovation are rewarding the work of people who bring to the table not only their expertise but above all their heart. I am proud of the results obtained alongside such a high value MotoGP team as Aprilia Racing and I am even prouder of the fact that DELLORTO has contributed, for its part, to the achievement of such high-level performance. A ‘Made in Italy’ triumph!"
