Got to be Reggiani, surely?
There are three colour options for the new bike, which Aprilia describe as Acid Gold, Apex Black and Lava Red. The Lava Red scheme on our test bike harks back to the colours of Loris Reggiani’s mid-1990s race bikes and the production RS250 of 1994. If the intention was to stir strange emotions in men of a certain age then mission accomplished, though Mike Armitage wants both wheels colour matched. Acid Gold isn’t as offensive in the flesh as it appears in some pictures.
