Aprilia USA will add a special dose of Hollywood blockbuster excitement to the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike series when it unveils a one-of-a-kind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen race bike on Saturday, June 6 at 1 p.m. at the Aprilia race truck inside the Road America Paddock.
KWS Factory Aprilia Millenium Technologies rider Ben Thompson (97) will compete in both races onboard this aggressively transformed Aprilia RSV 1000 Factory. He’ll be waging battle on the track sporting an equally ferocious helmet, both inspired by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, in theaters June 24.
In addition, Aprilia will also host an exclusive unveiling of the revolutionary 2010 RSV 4 superbike. Expected to transform the production superbike category with its unique blend of brutal power, Italian style and technical innovation, this is the very first Midwest appearance of the Aprilia RSV 4, the only one currently in the USA.
