Striking new Aprilia RS-GP for 2024 MotoGP season gets world premiere

Aprilia Racing

The heavily-updated Aprilia RS-GP that will race in the 2024 MotoGP World Championship has been revealed ahead of the second official pre-season MotoGP test in Qatar.

The tenth of eleven teams to formally reveal its machinery before the opening round at the Lusail International Circuit on 8-10 March, the factory Aprilia Racing team will feature an unchanged rider line-up for the third season in succession with Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales.

Lorenzo Savadori will continue to act as test and reserve rider, participating in a handful of wild-cards.


Having teased a fairly significant update to the RS-GP during the first official pre-season test in Sepang, the launch bike frames the changes more clearly as Aprilia bids to make the step from race winners to bonafide title contenders in 2024.

As such, there is plenty new on the bike from an aesthetic point of view with a lower, more tapered variation of its already aggressive front-wing arrangement, while the so-called 'Batmobile' rear end - with its svelte, creased design - is present too. Noticeably, the rear-end appears longer and higher than the 2023 RS-GP, while it now also features a rear-wing similarly to that used by KTM in 2023.

It's not only the front and rear end that have undergone changes, with Aprilia working hard on sculpting the fairing in a more pronounced manner.

The 2024-spec RS-GP will also be raced by satellite Trackhouse Racing rider Miguel Oliveira, with his team-mate Raul Fernandez getting use of the latest model later in the season.

The second and final pre-season test - held over two days - gets underway in Qatar on Monday and Tuesday.
