Aprilia Racing to Begin Dealership Certification Program

The certification program hopes to leverage Aprilia’s racing experience on the international stage to turn Aprilia dealerships into performance shops capable of honing Aprilia’s motorcycles for track use.

Aprilia Racing announced a new certification program for dealers in the United States.
The certification program hopes to leverage Aprilia’s racing experience on the international stage to turn Aprilia dealerships into performance shops capable of honing Aprilia’s motorcycles for track use.

Aprilia Racing certified dealerships will have access to a host of performance parts that Aprilia Racing developed in Italy, during the course of their racing programs in MotoGP and WorldSBK.

In order to obtain certification, dealership technicians will have to participate in a specific training program with Aprilia Racing, which will focus on setting up motorcycle electronics, chassis and engines.

Teaching these courses will be the same engineers from Aprilia’s racing department in Noale who are working with Aprilia’s factory racing teams.

Aprilia dealers who become certified by Aprilia Racing will also be able to sell Factory Works bikes and parts.

This includes the new Aprilia RSV4 RF LE, the first production superbike with winglets, as well as the Aprilia RSV4 FW-GP, a 250 HP monster with pneumatic valves.

The North American market will begin the first of the global training sessions, taking place following World Superbike round at Laguna Seca.
