Aprilia imgThis good looking project RSV4 bike for MotoGP was postponed because of excessive expenses. People from FTR are specialized on chassis mechanics and performance. These British experts were interested in cooperation with Honda. They designed several parts for  factory-backed bike for Marco Simoncelli. Honda stopped this project. However FTR was looking for some replacement instead of Honda. They chose Aprilia superbike engine and electronic. The costs were really huge. FTR had to delay the whole project. When are we going to see it? Bones from FTR gave piece of information about not returning to this project till 2013. He also added that time is getting short and even with money it would be really hard to accomplish the whole project in time. On the other side, FTR are now working on aluminium chassis being tested by Valentino Rossi.
