Updated: WSBK and MotoGP use two different configurations at Aragon. WSBK does not use the "chicken sh*t chicane" as Eddie Lawson used to call them.)
The new "EVO" engine that Aprilia's World Superbike team is testing at Aragon reportedly produced an eye-popping top speed of 210 mph at the hands of Eugene Laverty, which is nearly 5 mph faster than the top trap numbers produced in MotoGP competition at the track.
Hiroshi Aoyama reached 195.3 mph on a satellite Honda during the 2011 Grand Prix of Aragon, the top MotoGP speed ever recorded at the track.
If that raw power trickles up to MotoGP, then Aprilia's thinly disguised factory effort with Claiming Rule Teams outfits shouldn't lag far behind prototypes on the straightaways.
