Demo a 2020 Aprilia on the track. Need I say more?

For those of us that have attended demo days, we know the deal: sign a waiver, take it around the block, don’t crash. Hardly indicative of a motorcycle’s full capabilities, demos primarily help riders determine whether the bike has a suitable seating position and enough pep in the first few gears. On the other hand, track days require a level of dedication that many motorcyclists aren’t willing to commit to. Luckily, Aprilia’s on-track demo program Aprilia Racers Days merges test rides and lap times and it’s coming to a track near you this upcoming riding season.

Back for 2020, Aprilia’s Racers Days event offers support from Aprilia-certified technicians and product specialists from Pirelli, Dainese, and AGV. The price of admission not only includes track-access for you and your existing motorcycle but also allows riders to demo a 2020 Aprilia model with the VIP Aprilia Racers Days package. With a price range of $250-500 (location-dependent), motorcycle enthusiasts can simultaneously test their skills and a new Pirelli-shod Aprilia on America’s most hallowed tarmac.

In addition to the track time, Dainese’s Custom Works tailors will be on hand for fittings and consultations of custom race suits. The brand will also have a fleet of its D-Air (men and women) suits trackside for participants to demo. Not to be left out, AGV will showcase its Pista GP R, Corsa R, Sport Modular, K-5 S, and AX-9 and allow riders to test the helmets on the track. Following the festivities, registrants will receive a $250 accessories voucher for Aprilia purchases before June 30, 2020.
