Italian manufacturer Aprilia has wrapped up a three-day test at Mugello, in which extensively put the ART-Aprilia MotoGP bike to its paces.

Biaggi completed a marathon haul of 176 laps over the 72-hour workout, recording a best time of 1:50.940.

For Aprilia however the lap time is not crucial at this stage, as they are more focused on gathering key data for the continued development of their current bike – already being used in the MotoGP World Championship – and in preparation for a new Aprilia prototype they hope will race in the premier class in 2016.
