The story of Aprilia

Aprilia was founded in 1945 in Italy just after world war 2 ended by a man named Alberto Baggio. Bicycles came first in the company for many years before motorcycles, all the way to 1968 in fact when Albertos son Ivano produced a 50cc motorcycle. The first production aprilias were mopeds called Colibri, Daniela and Packi.

in 1970 Aprilia produced a trail bike named the scarabeo which came in 50 and 125cc variants, and was sold until the late 1970s.

1980s were a big decade for Aprilia as they added a variety of different models to their selection such as trials, enduro and road bikes spanning from 50 to 600cc. 1985 Aprilia started using the famous rotax motors for a variety of models, which has stuck right up to the present day.

The 1990s saw Aprilia win their first of many to come 125cc world Grand Prix titles. The launch of the pegaso 600 also came which was very similar in looks and usability to the Honda dominator of the same era. 1995 saw Aprilia launch one of the most successful bikes for the company, the RS125. The RS250 also was launched. 1998 The RSV Mille was produced, which is arguably the most well known Aprilia of the range.

Aprilia up to the present day have had lots of success including 125 wins at 125 and 250cc, 15 world GP titles and 16 European titles. Many successful riders have started out on Aprilia including Loris Capirossi and Valentino Rossi.

2003 came the RSV Tuono which was a naked version of the full faired mille version, and was a massive success as at the time not many manufactures made naked motorcycles with super bike engines.
