Aprilia race director: "Average age of the dead is 79 years old"

 Aprilia race director: Massimo Rivola questions the strict corona virus measures in his own country: The Italian wishes his country to return to normality as much as possible Italy continues the statistics in Europe and records the most corona deaths. The situation is particularly serious in the north of the country. Exit bans and closed factories are expected to slow the spread. But voices are slowly increasing, demanding a return to normality in order to avoid far-reaching economic consequences.

An in - line engine is just one solid block, easy to manufacture. Exhaust on one side, intake In 1907, J. Walter Christie was the first American to compete in the French GP with his car powered by a Ford of Europe produced two totally different V 4 engines (with four crankpins) and a balance shaft, one in

Why ? Because I was curious to test this engine .. this V 4 ! BMW has 10 years in advance on the Aprilia ! The handle on my right when I try to start the bike that' s not a perfect Aprilia as pushed this bike from the race to the road, with an advanced electronic and it' s very appreciate but they need

Aprilia built a completely new MotoGP last winter - Bike. The engine of the 2020 Aprilia is one of the biggest changes compared to last year. By the end of 2019, Aprilia was the only manufacturer to use a V4 engine with an acute angle (below 90 °).

For 2020 Aprilia followed the concepts of the competition from Honda and Ducati and also built a 90 ° V4 engine. But why didn't Aprilia think of switching to the in-line engine used by Yamaha and Suzuki?

"Aprilia has a history when it comes to V-engines," comments chief of technology Romano Albesiano at the 'MotoGP RoundTable' . "I think of the RSV Mille and even the off-road machines had V-engines. We are committed to this concept. We never thought of doing anything else."

The Glickenhaus hypercar will be equipped with a V8 flatplane biturbo with 870 hp. Basically, they are two compound four-cylinder engines that are based on the unit of the Hyundai i20 WRC.

The engine can be placed flat under the front or rear seats of a 4 or 5 seater car, but the heat released inevitably spreads to the seats, especially at high ambient temperature An in - line engine is a little simpler to produce industrially because it requires only one cylinder head, a single exhaust manifold

Aprilia RS 150 was showcased at Auto Expo 2018. The model was brought here to study user interest in Aprilia bikes as they currently cater to the needs It comes with segment-leading features for sure. Aprilia RS 150 is powered by a 150cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 18HP at 10

However, in-line engines are superior to V-engines when it comes to handling and space management. "The in-line four-cylinder engine has some obvious advantages. In the history of MotoGP, there were times when it was said that the in-line four-cylinder concept was over."

"Then a few years later it was said that the V4 engine is not the right choice. I don't think there is a right or wrong on this question," Albesiano notes.

"It is about optimizing the chosen configuration. We are fully convinced that you can win with a V4 engine. And in fact it is won (laughs; editor's note)", the Italian plays the success from Honda and Ducati and is clearly committed to the V4 engine: "We are currently not interested in other engine configurations for the MotoGP project."
