> Aprilia Blue Marlin concept
The Aprilia 1000 Blue Marlin concept from 2001 is a purists dream.
It was introduced at that year's Milan Motorcycle Show, and was designed
with the help of the French company Boxer Design.
The Blue Marlin concept was inspired by Aprilia's first road going
sports bike in the 1960's the Colibri 50. The clinical, machined lines
of the bike work superbly with the exposed engine.
The Blue Marlin is powered by the same 60 degree V-twin used in the
Aprilia RSV. The double cradle
frame draws on engineering solutions from both the road and track,
and is constructed from advanced materials and components. The Blue
Marlin featured high-spec items like Ohlins supension and Brembo brakes.
The result is an ultra-lightweight frame with high torsional rigidity
enabling the engine to be worked to its very limit.
