|9 December, 2013 - Xmas 2013: Aprilia Gift Ideas|
|#Aprilia #Chritsmas #Gifts - Time to look for gifts for Aprilia motorcycle lovers. Not an easy task, since Aprilia are not really into merchandising, but after some serious internet snooping, I did found a few ideas.|
|2 September, 2013 - Motorcycles and Cakes: Aprilia and BMW|
|#Cakes #BMW #Aprilia - I have noticed that many motorcycle riders have a sweet tooth. We love eating sweet things, maybe it is because we try to stay awake as long as possible on our rides, or maybe it's just because we just love sweet things.|
It is therefore no surprise to see many of us indulging in eating cakes, especially when the cakes have been made into our favorite vehicle. I have found quite a lot of cakes made into motorcycles, or the logo of the manufacturer, so many that they will not fit on one page. I will therefore be showing you brand-by-brand over time. Some cakes are works of art, some not, but I am quite sure they all taste wonderful.
Here is the first installment, Aprilia and BMW motorcycle. Just looking at the photos made my mouth water....
|18 April, 2013 - Video: Dream About Aprilia’s New Caponord 1200 - TV Ad|
|#Aprilia #Advertisement #Video #Caponord - It's been a while since we've seen an Aprilia TV commercial, but here's a beauty. The TV advertisement is for the latest version of the Caponord 1200, Aprilia's dual-sport motorcycle.|
The scenery is meant for dreams, nice music to listen to, and some of the bike's specs are flashed on the screen. The ad is not innovative or creative, but it does make you long for a nice summer ride.
|22 June, 2011 - Video: Aprilia RSV4 against Nissan GT-R|
|After Hell For Leather made the video explaining the electronics of the Aprilia RSV4 motorcycle, they raced the Italian sportsbike against Japan's prime sportscar, the Nissan GT-R. |
Though the circuit was very much in favor of the Nissan, both vehicles are stock standard, and driven by professionals.
By how much would the Nissan win. Watch the video.
|15 June, 2011 - Video: Aprilia Performance Ride Control|
|Here's a very good and professional video from Hell for Leather, about the revolutionary Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC). |
It shows and explains, without going into technical in-depth details, how and why APRC is a good thing on your Aprilia motorcycle. It can turn you into the next Max Biaggi..
|4 November, 2010 - EICMA 2010: Aprilia Tuono V4R Motorcycle|

|28 July, 2010 - Video: Aprilia Motorcycles Aren’t For Painting|
|A really cool video, I'd say more or less in response to BMW's cloth-from-the-table-pulling video, from Aprilia. |
In this funny video, you see an Aprilia RSV4 motorcycle painting! Honest, it's painting. Have a look.
|1 July, 2010 - Video: Funny Aprilia RS250 Ad - Not Real|
|Funny "TV" ad for Aprilia, for the RS250 motorcycle. |
However, it's not a real ad, nor is it from Aprilia. It's for a Dutch school as a project.
Very good idea and execution, better than many ad agencies.
|24 June, 2010 - Fake Ducati In Movie Knight and Day. Aprilia Used|
|The new blockbuster movie, Knight and Day, with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz riding on a Ducati Hypermotard motorcycle is a .... FAKE! |
Not the movie, nor Diaz or Cruise, but the Ducati is a fake. The Ducati is in fact an Aprilia SXV550 motorcycle, since the Ducati is too fragile for stunts, so the producers replaced it with a disguised Aprilia....
|22 February, 2010 - 12 Aprilia Motorcycles Ads from Around The World|
|Turn of Aprilia motorcycles and their worldwide advertisements... |
Problem was that there are very few ads out there, and all of them are made in Italy and then used in other countries.
Either Piaggio is hiding Aprilia from PR, or they hide their ads, or everyone knows the Italian motorcycle manufacturer.. and don't need no ads.
Anyway, here are 12 Aprilia motorcycle ads.
|3 October, 2009 - Stop/Action: An Interesting Motorcycle Art Display|
|Our friends at Hell For Leather Magazine have organized a real art exhibit (ie not an internet one), called Stop/Action, in New York. |
Until October 11th, you can see Aprilia motorcycle positioned in such a way as they would appear in a movie film; panel-by-panel.
So if you're in New York, head over to the art gallery and have a look. It must be interesting, since it's a novel idea.
