Aprilia Reveals New Limited Edition RSV4 Factory And Tuono V4 Factory

When a bike (or two) is so good, maybe Bold New Graphics are all it really needs. 

Begin press release:

Aprilia USA has revealed new versions of its category leading superbike and hypernaked, the RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory, celebrated for their famous 65-degree narrow V4 platform derived from championship winning experience in World Superbike, now with a new limited edition colorway for both models.

The new V4 models capitalize on a culmination of studious efforts in applied aerodynamics. Significant time spent in a wind tunnel has led to a shape and aesthetic with an ultra-modern look and extremely low aerodynamic resistance. This careful design presents significant performance benefits at high speeds with increases in airbox pressure and downforce.

Along with the aerodynamics, the new V4 Factory models have entirely new and improved ergonomics to maximize rider comfort. The newly designed fuel tanks and saddle allow a rider to fit perfectly with the fairings while still allowing a comfortable amount of onboard space for a more natural and relaxed riding position.

The revamped 1,099cc V4 engine of the RSV4 Factory is stronger than ever and is the most powerful ever built by Aprilia, with an incredible 217 horsepower, while the more upright Tuono V4 makes an impressive 175 horsepower thanks to its 1,077cc V4.

Both models include the new six-axis Marelli 11MP ECU, full ride-by-wire throttle and refined APRC operating system. Along with the introduction of multi-level engine braking control, both Factory models feature six riding modes, three for the track and three for the road (three of which are customizable modes). These riding modes allow best-fit settings for traction control, wheelie control, engine braking and ABS to be calibrated at the touch of a button. Both the RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory come fitted with forged aluminum wheel rims, a semi-active Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension system and Brembo Stylema brakes.

The RSV4 and Tuono V4 standout thanks to a triple LED front headlight unit with perimeter DRL lights that showcase the signature Aprilia sportbike look. Also included are Aprilia’s cornering lights, a feature that allows for increased visibility while turning by utilizing supplementary lights to illuminate the inside of a turn.

Pricing for the special edition V4 Factory models have increased slightly, with a $500 USD premium and a $750 CAD premium respectively.

RSV4 Factory Special Edition
Availability: U.S. May 2023 / Canada June 2023
Price: U.S. $26,499 / Canada $28,245

Tuono V4 Factory Special Edition
Availability: U.S. May 2023 / Canada June 2023
Price: U.S. $20,099/ Canada $22,845

Metzeler Appointed as the Official Tire of the Isle of Man TT

Metzeler has been appointed as the official tire of the Isle of Man until 2027.

Begin press release:

The Metzeler tire brand has been selected by the Department for Enterprise of the Isle of Man as Official Tire with a sponsorship contract for the TT Races for the five-year period 2023-2027.

Paul Phillips, Head of Motorsport – Isle of Man Department for Enterprise

“Metzeler are a welcome addition to the line-up of official sponsoring brands for this year’s Isle of Man TT Races. Our commercial objective is to work collaboratively with our Official partners to add value to the TT experience for everyone involved in the event. Metzeler is already integrally associated with the TT and is the tire of choice for many teams competing in the event, with a proven performance track record. We are sure that this will be a successful partnership that will grow in strength over the years to come.”
Francesco Pietrangeli, Motorcycle Marketing Director Metzeler brand
“The Isle of Man TT is one of the oldest and best known motorcycle races in the world and has a unique and timeless appeal. Metzeler tires have been involved in Road Racing for some time and over the years have contributed to the successes of many riders by supporting them and making our RACETEC RR tires available to them. We are very delighted with the agreement which represents the natural evolution of our commitment to Road Racing and it is also the best way to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the birth of our brand”.
The Tourist Trophy has been run since 1907 on the road circuit of the Snaefell Mountain Course, a 60.720 km track on the Isle of Man. Over the years it has become an iconic competition characterized by charm, tradition, glory, passion and adrenaline, values also shared by those choosing Metzeler tires, a brand that boasts a history of over a century and a half full of motorsport successes and technology.

The Metzeler Racetec RR has been developed through road racing competitions such as the Isle of Man TT.

The Metzeler RACETEC RR tires already used by the riders have been developed thanks to Metzeler’s experience in Road Racing competitions which, as is known, do not take place on circuits but on roads that are open to the public throughout the year and where all the situations that any motorcyclist may have to face on a daily basis can be found. And it is precisely for this reason that road racing has always been the testing and development ground for Metzeler tires. Thanks to its participation in Road Racing activities and to the acquired know-how, the Metzeler tire range has been enriched by giving life to successful tires, including the sporty SPORTEC M9 RR.

Triumph Sign Ivan Tedesco and Clement Desalle As Test Riders For MX Program

Triumph is charging into the 2024 and 2025 Supermotocross and MXGP seasons in full force, signing two popular and experienced pilots as test riders for the upcoming 250cc and 450cc motocross models.

Begin press release:


As preparations for Triumph’s debut in the 2024 SuperMotocross and MXGP/MX2 World Championships intensify, Triumph Racing confirms it has signed two top class riders to lead its race development testing.

Ivan Tedesco comes onboard as full-time test rider for the Triumph Racing US SuperMotocross World Championship Team, led by Bobby Hewitt, and Clément Desalle joins as test rider for the Triumph Racing MXGP/MX2 Team, run by Thierry Chizat-Suzzoni,


Ivan Tedesco (‘Hot Sauce’) began racing motorcycles at the age of eight years old and turned Pro in 1999, with a career that spanned 14 years. In his racing career, Tedesco won the AMA 125cc West Coast Supercross series twice (2004 and 2005), the AMA 125cc National Motocross series (2005) and the Motocross of Nations three times with Team USA (2005, 2006 and 2009).

After his retirement from professional racing in 2014, Ivan turned his talents to coaching up and coming racers and becoming one of the very best manufacturer development test riders of the current era.

Ivan Tedesco:

“I’m super excited to be part of the new Triumph racing program and to be working with Ricky and Bobby again. To have the opportunity to work with a new brand in our sport, to take a new bike and develop it to a race ready package, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The team that Triumph is assembling to compete in the SuperMotocross championship is second to none, and together with the support of the engineers at the Triumph Factory, I’m confident we will line up with a competitive bike for Anaheim 1 in 2024.”

Bobby Hewitt: Triumph Racing Team Principal – SMX:

“I’ve known Ivan for many years now, as a multi-time AMA SX Champion and AMA MX Champion who has raced at the highest level including being a member of Team USA multiple times at the Motocross of Nations.

Adding someone with his experience to the program adds another layer of quality and racing experience to an already strong foundation at Triumph Racing here in the US. In 2014 I had the privilege to have Ivan as a team member and pro-rider on one of my previous racing programs before he retired. During that time, I personally had the opportunity to work with him as a rider, experience his attention to detail as a test rider, and more importantly see first-hand how he works and would mentor upcoming riders.

Today is a great day and I’m very excited to add “Hot Sauce” to the program. I truly believe this is another example that the future here at Triumph Racing is very bright!”


“This is so exciting. It’s just another example of Triumphs dedication to the development of the off-road line of motorcycles. I have no doubt, that with guys like Ivan Tedesco and Clément Desalle and the knowledge they bring to the table from an R&D standpoint, that these bikes will be top of the line, from a race bike perspective as well as a production model. These guys know what it takes to win at the highest level and will be a huge asset to the development of a great product!”


Clément Desalle (‘MX Panda’) competed at the highest level in the MXGP World Championship for 15 years. One of the most consistent racers in the series, he claimed three Vice Champion finishes, was third in the World Championship three times and twice finished fourth. The Belgium national finished on the top step of the podium 23 times in his career, as well as being crowned the Pro open Belgian champion in 2009. He retired from racing in 2020 and turned his attention to test riding and developing race bikes, and is already making a major contribution to Triumph’s progress with its new race bike.

Clément Desalle:

“Joining the Triumph MX2 program allows me to make use of my years of experience as a professional racer to help take the stock bike to a full factory race bike, ready for the MX2 season in 2024. Working with Thierry and Vincent, I know that Triumph have joined with the best people possible to deliver winning results in the quickest possible time and I’m excited for what the future holds.”

Vincent Bereni: Triumph Racing Team Manager – MXGP:

“When Triumph asked us to join this MX project, we knew that the bike R&D and testing was a going to be major part of the success. Clément has a lot of experience of MXGP tracks, the requirements for the race disciplines and is still very fast.

We have worked with Clément for many years and he is a very demanding rider, who pays attention to every aspect of the motorcycle, so in our opinion he is the perfect candidate. We know and understand each other very well and he has already brought a lot to bike development, for both the production and racing application. We are very pleased that he joined the program.”


SMX: Triumph Motorcycles will enter the Monster Energy AMA SuperMotocross World Championship at the start of the 2024 season, with a fully supported factory race program established in the United States to run motocross operations under the all-new global Triumph Racing banner.

Set-up and operated in partnership with Bobby Hewitt, this new Triumph Racing team will field three of Triumph’s all-new 250cc 4-stroke MX bikes in the 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship West and East Coast series before entering the 450cc premier class in 2025.

MXGP: Similarly in 2024, Triumph Racing will also debut in the prestigious FIM Motocross World Championship with a factory supported race programme.

This landmark new Triumph Racing Team has been set-up in partnership with Thierry Chizat- Suzzoni, one of the sport’s most experienced and successful team owners, who will field two of Triumph’s all-new 250cc 4-stroke MX bikes in the 2024 MX2 class and will add an entry into the 450cc MXGP class in 2025.

Triumph Racing is based at Triumph’s Global Headquarters in Hinckley, UK, where the brand’s off- road design engineering department is located – responsible for the concept and development of the powertrains and chassis for the all-new Motocross and Enduro motorcycle range.

The MXGP/MX2 World Championship team will be based at Thierry’s race facility near Eindhoven in Holland, while the SuperMotocross World Championship operation will be based at a dedicated new state-of-the-art race facility in the USA.

Engineering groups at the Triumph factory and the race teams are working closely together on continuously enhancing chassis and engine performance through an intensive testing schedule, led by Ivan Tedesco and Clément Desalle, underway in the USA, UK and Europe, building towards the competitive World Championship debut in 2024.

Lawrence collects first Triple Crown win in Arizona

Lawrence collects first Triple Crown win in Arizona

Tomac climbs to second all-time with 450SX triumph.

Jett Lawrence wins in 250SX West inside State Farm Stadium in April 2023.

The standout 250SX West rider in 2023, Jett Lawrence put his previous Triple Crown misfortune in the past with his first victory in the alternate format of racing during the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross visit to Glendale, Arizona while Eli Tomac ascended to second all-time with the 51st victory of his career.

Scores of 1-3-1 put Lawrence atop the class for the fifth of six races thus far in 2023.

Levi Kitchen of Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s RJ Hampshire both had enough speed to pressure Lawrence during each of the three races, with Hampshire reaching the checkered flag first in Race 2.

Hampshire claimed second overall on the strength of his race win, while Kitchen took 3-2-2 results to the final podium step.

Pierce Brown was fast all day aboard his TLD Red Bull GasGas machine, finishing 4-4-5 for fourth overall on the night. Unfortunately, Brown fell in the first turn after the night’s first gate drop and hit the ground again after Race 1 was red-flagged and restarted.

Failing to fully capitalize on the absence of newly injured Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider Cameron McAdoo, Enzo Lopes (Muc-Off FXR ClubMX Yamaha) finished seventh, fifth, and fourth in Glendale for fifth overall.

Derek Kelley was competitive for the local team AEO Powersports throughout the event and finished sixth overall. Kelley led Mitchell Oldenburg (Smartop MotoConcepts Racing), Max Vohland (Red Bull KTM), Robbie Wageman (Bar-X Suzuki), and Carson Mumford (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) in completing the top 10.

Returning to competition after a violent crash last time out at Seattle, Stilez Robertson (Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing) crashed and was hit by three riders in the first race. The incident brought out the red flag and put Robertson and Luke Kalaitzian out for the night.

With six rounds down and three to go for the west region 250SX category, Lawrence leads Hampshire by 26 points, with Kitchen a further 26 back. The series will return to action for the year’s first 250SX East/West Showdown at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium on April 22.

Eli Tomac secures the 450SX win in Glendale in April 2023.

Held in the midst of a fierce 450SX championship battle, the 2023 Triple Crown at Glendale will forever have a place in the sport’s history as the round at which Tomac moved past James Stewart for second on the all-time win list.

Race results of 1-2-1 for the Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing rider were more than enough to secure the overall victory inside this year’s Super Bowl-hosting State Farm Stadium.

Chase Sexton (Team Honda HRC) executed a wire-to-wire victory of the night’s second race for the premier class, getting past Tomac at one point but taking control right back with a remarkable pass through the whoops. Sexton’s night of 4-1-3 race scores culminated in second overall.

The following positions were closely contested throughout the night, with TLD Red Bull GasGas rider Justin Barcia collecting his first Triple Crown podium on the strength of 3-6-2 results in the trio of races.

Cooper Webb (Red Bull KTM) could do no better than fifth in Race 2, limiting his potential on the night as he turned 2-5-4 results into fourth overall. With Tomac more successful on the night, Webb forfeited his stake in the championship lead leaving the season’s 12th round.

Fast in qualifying and competitive during the evening program, Ken Roczen added his Progressive Insurance Ecstar Suzuki to the overall top five with 5-3-5 race results.

Adam Cianciarulo (Monster Energy Kawasaki), Aaron Plessinger (Red Bull KTM), the returning Colt Nichols (Team Honda HRC), Dean Wilson (Fire Power Honda), and Jason Anderson (Monster Energy Kawasaki) comprised the remainder of the top 10.

It’s the long-awaited first top-10 result of the 2023 Supercross season for Wilson, aided by misfortune for Anderson. A crash for the Kawasaki rider in the night’s final race ended his night early.

As the series heads east to visit MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Tomac will take to the track with a seven-point advantage over Webb in the 450SX standings. Sexton heads into the 13th round 25 points in arrears of Tomac.

Moto Guzzi Launches V100 Mandello Campaign with Ewan McGregor

Moto Guzzi goes old school shooting a series of spots about the V100 Mandello in 35mm film. The beauty of the imagery suits the motorcycles featured in the campaign. We’re looking forward to future installments.

Read the full release:




The video for the newest Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello campaign has a true Moto Guzzi lover as its protagonist: Ewan McGregor puts all his charisma and authenticity as a motorcyclist into narrating the passion that binds him to Moto Guzzi.

The video, shot in various locations in California under the direction of Duncan Winecoff, is a true declaration of love for Moto Guzzi, thanks to a narration that reveals the profound nature of the bond between man and motorcycle. It is a production with a strong autobiographical flavor, where the journey is a metaphor for life.

Human beings build their identity in relation to objects and memories, which – in turn – make up their emotional baggage. Their emotional history is with them through their lives, and it helps them project themselves into the unknown, in constant balance between past and present. Similarly, the V100 Mandello represents the climax of a century-long history, rich with innovation and craftsmanship. It is the Moto Guzzi of the future, yet it is designed and built on the solid foundations of a unique past.

The symbiotic relationship between man and motorcycle is thus explored during the 60-second video thanks to McGregor’s voiceover. The actor is not only a profound connoisseur and bikes collector, but is also a genuine Moto Guzzi enthusiast, so much so that all the historic motorcycles that appear in the campaign come from his personal collection and have become an integral part of the storytelling at his own suggestion.

“When I got to open up with the V100 on the Pacific Highway it was truly an exhilarating experience, this is a very unique bike – sporty yet comfortable, perfect for a long ride. It’s totally Moto Guzzi at heart, and that’s what’s so great about it, that they managed to design a modern liquid-cooled motorcycle that still feels like a Guzzi” McGregor explained.

Shot entirely on 35mm film, the video finds the perfect tone, evoking the golden years of Hollywood and enhancing the uniqueness of the V100 Mandello, thanks to photography that is always in balance between old cinema and contemporary art, and thanks to the use of extraordinarily evocative locations such as Eric Lloyd Wright’s brutalist house in Malibu, the Pacific Coast Highway, the desert spaces in Lancaster, the L.A. River and the Second Street Tunnel in downtown Los Angeles.

Tickets Still Available: Get On ADV Fest Mojave Desert, April 27-30

Although the event is only weeks away, the 2023 Get On ADV Fest Mojave Desert still has some tickets available. With an unusually wet winter in the desert, the riding and scenery should be at its peak. Couple that with four days of self-guided rides at all skill levels, and you have the prescription for a good time. 

In the base camp enjoy catered meals, access to the vendor village with 30+ vendors of cool gear, an on-site RevZilla Adventure Shop (to spend the $25 voucher you receive with registration), and a swag bag of goodies. As with any full-featured rally, there will be free OEM test rides, allowing you to possibly find your next adventure bike. 

Aside from the bench racing there will be nightly music and other entertainment, such as screenings  of the Oregon BDR movie and “A Rally For Rangers” (Award Winning Documentary Film). Want to learn some new things? Attend classes on topics like “REVER Training,” “Desert Readiness,” and “Why Arai, Proper Helmet Fitment.” If space is still available, RawHyde offers its famed Level 1 and Level 2 rider training courses. 

While all of these activities are fun, the real reason for attending is the beautiful countryside to ride through. REVER has curated all of the rides and has geared them towards a variety of skill levels. All Get On ADV Fest attendees get a one year free REVER Pro membership to access the carefully-guarded ride routes that will only be released during the event. 

When it’s time to rest up for the next day’s rides, free camping under the stars is included. There will also be showers on site. 

Last year, the launch point for our 2,000 mile Showdown between the 2022 Aprilia Tuareg 660 and the Yamaha Ténéré 700 began at the Get On ADV Fest Black Hills event at the Buffalo Chip, and we got to see all the smiling faces of the attendees as they came in from the rides, dirty and happy. We knew it was a well put together event. We’d expect the same from the Mojave Desert version, and notable influencers and personalities will be on hand to take part in the festivities.

Extensive list of injuries revealed by MX2 contender Ferguson

Bruised lung and multiple breaks throughout body outlined.

Image: Foremost Media.

GasGas Racing Team’s MX2 contender Noah Ferguson has revealed a long list of injuries following that practice crash in the week leading into Appin’s second round of the Penrite ProMX championship.

Initial x-ray results showed a fractured collarbone, which Ferguson has ridden through in the past and was confident he could do so again to secure valuable championship points heading into a four-week break. However, after attempting to race round two at Appin, the Queensland-based rider suspected that his injuries were greater than the fractured collarbone alone.

“Basically, after Appin, I went to get more scans,” Ferguson told MotoOnline. “I got a CT scan, MRI and ultrasound on some other areas of my body that I was feeling pain in. Turns out, I had a broken humerus, scapula, rib cage, T5 and obviously the collarbone, but I also bruised my lung, so I gave myself a good whack and wasn’t really aware of the extent.  My first scans only showed a broken collarbone.

“Right now, the plan moving forward is to take it day-by-day, I don’t want to return to racing unless I feel I can really be competitive. So we’ll play it by ear heading into Wodonga and see what happens. It’s a bummer, I had a great start to the season and I was feeling great on the bike, but these things happen and this is the sport we’re in. I’ll learn from it moving forward and hope that it makes me a better rider overall.”

His 2023 season was off to a flying start at round one in Wonthaggi, qualifying fastest and taking home third in the opening round. The Penrite ProMX Championship now heads to Wodonga, Victoria, on April 16 for round three. Ferguson sits 14th in the MX2 standings after failing to score points in either of the two motos at Appin, despite lining up for qualifying and moto one.
