APRILIA and DELLORTO: collaboration in the world grand prix motorcycle racing championship premier category continues
Cabiate, May 24th 2021
What has by now become a historic collaboration between two great Italian technologically excellent organisations. In fact, the partnership continues that unites Aprilia Racing and Dell’Orto S.p.A., together since the World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing days in the 125 and 250 categories. A profitable agreement that was also pursued in the factory derivative bikes, with the multi-victorious Aprilia RSV4, and then in MotoGP in 2015.
In this project, DELLORTO supplies the throttle body, a crucial element of the fuel system used on the Aprilia V4 engine. A challenge at the top levels of world motorcycling, where technology and development are exalted and pushed beyond the limit.
Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Sport Director, confirms: “The history of Aprilia Racing and of DELLORTO merge when it comes to motorcycle racing. An all-Italian duo which has been earning success on the global stage for years now. We are proud to be able to collaborate with partners whose technological level is a certain added value, capable of supporting our daily efforts in searching for top performance. We’ll also continue to grow together in MotoGP, the feather in our sports programme’s cap and the highest expression of technological research on two wheels.”
Andrea Dell’Orto – Dell’Orto S.p.A. Vice President: “We are proud to be alongside Aprilia Racing, a company that has made history in world motorcycling. The collaboration between DELLORTO and the Piaggio Group has historic roots that range from racing competitions to factory production. Innovation is written in our DNA, made up of passion and skill, a quality that allows us to provide our partners with the best technologies to win together!”
