Aprilia Fools Day!Tue, 01 Apr 2014
The Aprilia Racing Team got into the spirit of April Fool’s Day with a new video touting an all-new livery for its RSV4 Superbike.

The video appears to have been filmed around the same time Aprilia revealed its actual “Silver Fireball” livery. World Superbike racers Marco Melandri and Sylvain Guintoli did not appear to be in on the joke, judging by their reactions to the big reveal of a pair of bicycles with RSV4 fairings and tails mounted to them.
Still, we have to admit it does look fun riding those RSV4 bicycles. Also interesting was the making-of segment at end of the video showing how Aprilia’s mechanics assembled the special gag bikes.
