First there were the RVX and the SVX hitting the dirt and supermoto scene. And now the flat track isn't safe any more either. The Ape Man Striketh again!!! http://www.apriliausa.com/magazine_dettaglio.asp?id=382 Following recent successful tests aboard their latest generation AMA Flattrack machine, Aprilia USA is proud to announce that Lloyd Brother Motorsports, Inc will field Aprilia V990-powered machines in the 2006 AMA Flattrack Season. The primary rider for the team will be Henry Wiles of Blanchard, Michigan. Flattrack is a classic racing series in the US, says Mike Kull, Vice President of Marketing for Aprilia USA, To see Aprilia, a brand with a long established racing tradition, fight for the championship will be extremely exciting. We encourage all Aprilia fans to attend the races and cheer on their team." We are very happy to support the Lloyd Brothers in their continuing efforts towards success in the AMA Flattrack Championship, Says Robert Pandya, Aprilia USA Off-Road Product Manager. The Lloyd Brothers are truly the spirit of the sport and have challenged conventional and new Flattrack machines with their design. Henry Wiles will pilot the machine. From the first time I tested the bike I knew that David and Michael were on to something the power is great, but the control is phenomenal. Its cool to be on a different machine from the rest of the field, and I know that the fans appreciate the effort, says Wiles. The Aprilia USA / Lloyd Brothers Motorsports will be touring the AMA Half and full-mile circuits totaling thirteen events this season. The team will be supported by the Aprilia USA rig at all Mile events and select half mile events. Product sponsors already signed on are Komodo Leathers, Leo Vince Exhaust systems K&N Filters, Motion Pro Tools and Cables, and Spectro Oils. Additional sponsors are being sought for what will surely be one of the most interesting teams in the 2006 AMA Flattrack season.
