“From a technical point of view, it is always fascinating to listen to the impressions of a rider who is testing your bike for the first time,” said Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Technical Director. “Especially with a champion like Maverick, who we are pleased to welcome into the Aprilia Racing family.
“After the great work carried out on the track by the racing department over the last two years, we are adding yet another piece to the path of growth that we are undertaking with encouraging results.
“Clearly the first approach involves a very practical adaptation phase, in terms of ergonomics and setup, which we know vary for each rider. But I’m sure that Maverick’s talent and speed will come to the fore right away and I can’t wait to start working together.”
