It’s no secret that Aleix Espargaro has long wanted a satellite team to help Aprilia take the next step forward. His wish came true this year with the announcement of RNF’s arrival at Noale’s structure.
The CryptoDATA-RNF made its debut with Aprilia on the test day in Valencia, after the final race of the season. The Spaniard told Corsedimoto that he met with Miguel Oliveira and Raul Fernandez to find out what their first impression of the RS-GP was:
– I didn’t observe their data, I just went to greet them at their garage. They were happy, they got the feeling that the bike is agile and the engine is more elastic, with a smoother delivery of power when accelerating and that it is a bike quite different from the KTM. We have to give them time. They are both strong and I am convinced that they will help the factory team a lot.
