Aprilia RS3 Cube MotoGP bike
A testbed that never was raced produced 260 bhp
(190 kW) at one point, afore Aprilia angled out of MotoGP in 2004. The agent was
advised the best able at that time, bearing about 240 bhp (180 kW). Edwards'
assistant in the 2003 Aprilia team, Noriyuki Haga, comatose the Cube 28 times in
a distinct season. The bike was not a success; Colin Edwards proclaimed the bike
was "born bad," and it had "just so abounding things that charge fixing." It had
a addiction to wheelie easily, a abridgement of front-end feel, beating from
both the advanced and rear wheels, and capricious acknowledgment from its
fly-by-wire burke system.
The Cube is powered by a 990 cc inline-3 four-stroke agent (to accommodate to
MotoGP rules of that time). It was apparent at the Bologna Motor Show in
December 2001 by Aprilia's president, Ivano Beggio, and their chase boss, Jan
Witteveen. The Aprilia RS3 Cube is a ancestor chase motorcycle that was
developed by Aprilia to attempt in the 2002 until 2004 MotoGP seasons.
