Driving report Aprilia mille R Edwards replica

In Colin’s footsteps

Haga had one, Bostrom had one, and now the reigning Superbike World Champion has a replica too. Shortly after taking office at his new employer, Aprilia brings a Mille R Edwards replica onto the market.

The Parabolica curve in Monza appears endlessly long. In fourth gear, still dragging my knee across the asphalt, am I following Colin Edwards ?? Traces. The V2 of the Edwards replica hammers completely unabashedly from the two open titanium silencers of the Akrapovic system in the direction of the start-finish straight.
The 200 meter sign at the end of the straight, at the height of which the speedometer shows a good 260 things, signals the last chance to drop anchor so as not to miss the turning point in this tricky chicane to be driven in first gear. The four individual pads each grip brutally in the radially screwed brake calipers and compress the Aprilia to around 60 km / h.
Although the Ohlins spring elements respond very sensitively and the Thousand shines with its usual playful handling, this chicane lives up to its name. A hare on the run could catch such a hook, but not a motorcycle that weighs a good six hundred pounds with a crew.
A big grin under the helmet comes over the driver at the chican exit. Equipped with a 16-tooth sprocket instead of the standard 17-tooth sprocket, the Edwards replica sprints so aggressively towards the Curva-grande that the front wheel only points towards the sky in first and second gear. Quickly shift up two gears, and thanks to the stable chassis, you can go through the curve at full throttle. The following left-right combination, which is much smoother, shows that chicaning can also be fun. The braking zone, peppered with a few bumps, makes the Mille lurch wildly at the rear and suggests the driver the feeling of topping Edward’s training time.
AT.At the exit of the chicane, the same picture appears again. The mounted Pirelli Supercorsa pamper you with excellent grip and let the Mille lift the front wheel halfway in an inclined position. The two Lesmo curves afterwards can be mastered by bike and rider without any problems, and in the subsequent left-right-left combination that leads to the Parabolica, the Mille shines. Thanks to the 180 rear tire – with its playful handling.
On the long straights of Monza, the Edwards replica shows its extra performance compared to the production model. Around 133 hp are now available for road use thanks to the larger 57 mm throttle valves and a modified EPROM. Anyone who moves on closed-off terrain and can listen to the open Akrapovic system can still expect three to four additional horsepower.
The bottom line is that the Edwards replica only has the design in common with the RS Cube used by Edwards in the MotoGP. It is still an interesting offer. With Eprom and 16-pinion, the Edwards replica costs 16,999 euros. Only 1000 euros more than the Mille R. The Akrapovic system alone, which unfortunately has no ABE and is also supplied for the race track, costs over 2100 euros. A fair price for a visually and technically pepped up Mille R to walk in Colin’s footsteps. Unfortunately, track rental in Monza is not included.
