Marquez told us he didn't want to test. The press release said he would see about testing. I think Honda decided that he would be testing.

Is it me or are the Aprilia's improving bit by bit? Or at least Bautista is...

Usually hard to read into the tests, as one might be pushing, while the field might be taking it easy, but judging by the races and everything, it does seem so.

Aprilia might not have the backing that Honda and Ducati have, but now being owned by Piaggio, they certainly don't have empty pockets.

And let's be honest, except for their failed RS3 Cube project, Aprilia have a very good racing pedigre.

They have a bucket full of 125 and 250 titles, and 3 WSBK titles in I think 6 years of racing the RSV4.

Aprilia I think, are the genuine article, and one of the rare companies with an honest interest in simply being fast.
