Aprilia has finally gotten around to putting its FV2 1200 concept bike into a photo studio. We told you about the radical carbon-framed bike back in November when it debuted at the EICMA show. It hasn’t gotten any better looking since then.
There’s more to the FV2 than its ugly translucent orange bodywork. There are actually some neat design solutions here, like for instance, the skeletal carbon fiber rear subframe (something usually hidden beneath body work). We admire its neat form and the way it incorporates the LED indicators. We also like the tread pattern on the tire. While it doesn’t look capable of actually clearing any water, the bike’s disjointed angular lines complement the rest of the bike perfectly.
