"I'm really happy that we will be working with Aprilia,' Says West Coast Supermoto School owner Darrick Lucchesi.

Supermoto is growing, and increased training and track day opportunities will only help get more riders into the sport."

"Aprilia USA is very excited about the growth of Supermoto in the USA," says Mike Kull, Vice President of Marketing for the Piaggio Group Americas, Inc.

The Supermoto experience is spectacular, and training is the only way to increase rider skills and explore full capabilities of the machine."
