Yep- it happened before. FIM added weight in week 6 or 7 when they let Ducati bump from the 888 motor to the litre motor.
Aprilia racing the V-4 is not a suprise. They figured weight would be a slight issue if they ran a twin. They didn't want that so V-4 it is. It's the cost of selling the street bike version that should be interesting. I figure the street bike will sell for just north of $30k. All the have to sell is some 1500 world wide, but $30k for an Aprilia, whew!

That rotax twin they had been running is wonderful, but this just gives us another Italian choice for motor configuration. That's a good thing.
Absolutly! Fact is, when BMW enters the "new" 190hp/190kilo Superbike in WSB for 2009 things will be very interesting. KTM will enter their V-twin. Buell should have the 1125 ready for a Superbike run, too. With Aprilia, BMW, KTM and Buell all ready for 2009 racing will only get better.
