CSBK 2022


26 May 2022 - Aprilia’s RSV4 lineup is now approved for the 2022 Canadian national competition – Canadian Superbike Championship - both in the Pro Superbike category and in the Amateur Superbike division of the CSBK tour.

Marco d'Acunzo, President and CEO of Piaggio Group Americas, confirmed the homologation of the potent V4 powered street machines, available at dealers across Canada along with the full range of Aprilia sports machinery.
“Aprilia’s first home is the racetrack. It is where the spirit of the brand lives, and with Aprilia, where countless champions first proved themselves on an international stage. This is another step for Aprilia, to bring our championship winning machines (editor’s note: Aprilia holds 34 racing world titles) to the Canadian racing series, and competition venues across the country,” confirms d’Acunzo.

“We look forward to meeting both racers, and fans of Aprilia at CSBK rounds, and further developing our partnership with the series.”
