Aprilia?s USA division has released the following tribute to the now decommissioned space shuttle program. It?s essentially an RSV4 advert, but with enough heart-stopping shots of 81 million horsepower rockets to justify the association.
The Aprilia team says: ?Crossing performance boundaries never thought possible and forging new frontiers in innovation? making and racing motorcycles wouldn’t be entirely alien to the people that created a bridge between earth and space.?
Whether there?s room in Aprilia?s R&D department for any ex-NASA engineers remains to be seen.
