What that may lead to is still uncertain. However, it is undeniably more than a whim. "Given Aprilia's future involvement in MotoGP, we're thinking about doing something together," said Romano Albesiano, head of Aprilia's racing department. In fact, the Roman has expressed the desire to race in WSBK as a wild-card as early as in Misano, scheduled for the weekend of June 22nd. As WSBK is still looking for a major character to increase its visibility, organizer Dorna already gave an informal nod. Receiving final approval from Aprilia, however, is a whole different matter.
