Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP unleashed

first_imgMotoGP-inspired Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP released and features a 250hp V4 with pneumatic valves. Taking its #bearacer motto to the next level, Aprilia has just released its MotoGP-inspired special called the RSV4 R FW-GP. The special is now available as part of the Aprilia Factory Works program line up.If you didn’t know, the Aprilia Factory Works division caters specifically to racers and customers alike and offers professional-level versions of the highly successful and popular Aprilia RSV4 RR superbike. The R FW-GP is the very latest addition to this line up.The Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP comes loaded with all of the technologies found in the Aprilia MotoGP machine. Based off its WSBK-spec machine, the GP version utilises a revised engine with a 81mm bore restriction as dictated by MotoGP’s ruling – 3mm larger than the standard RSV4’s 78mm bore figure in fact.On top of that, the mill also comes primed with a pneumatic valvetrain system. This not only grants the 65-degree litre-sized V4 mill to rev stratospherically, it also has a factory-guaranteed output of 250hp.Aprilia have even prepared a special ownership experience for this machine whereby its customers can meet with factory engineers to go over the details of the machine’s construction, which will be bespoke to each owner. Buyers also have access to the factory to oversee their prized machine’s construction.With that, it was unsurprising to see Aprilia offering a more intensive after-sales support to Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP owners as well. Part of this includes an initial track day to tweak the machine to the owner’s electronic and mechanical preferences.As for price? Well, you know the old saying… “If you had to ask, you can’t afford it.” Aprilia remains coy on the subject too, but you can find out more about the Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP special plus the rest of the Aprilia Factory Works other offerings by visiting its official webpage, serviceaprilia.com/public/racing. –Ads–last_img read more

LeBron James’ Marketing Agency Says So Long to Relationship with Johnny Manziel

first_img Related TopicsBrownsCavsJohnny ManzielLebron James Matt Loede The separation from companies and Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has started, as Cleveland.com reports that the LeBron James‘ marketing agency has cut ties with Manziel, this after a wave of news that the quarterback spent the final weekend of the Browns season in Las Vegas…wearing a disguise.“We’ve decided to end our formal business relationship with Johnny,” said Maverick Carter, James’ long-time friend and business partner who runs LRMR, the agency which until now had represented Manziel in endorsement deals.“I will continue to support and advise him as a friend,” Carter said. “However, because Johnny needs to focus on personal growth, the next phase of his career and because LRMR continues to expand beyond marketing, we made the mutual decision that it was best to terminate our business relationship.”James himself spoke about Manziel when asked the question, stating that ‘He’ll figure it out at some point, we all hope.’As far as Manziel’s future goes, it doesn’t look good from a number of experts for him to be back in Cleveland next season. Monday Peter King of Sports Illustrated was the latest to state that Manziel won’t be a member of the Browns next season. center_img Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

The Indians have had stellar starting pitching, for the most part, from Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar, and Josh Tomlin; but the rest of the rotation, which has consisted of Trevor Bauer, Cody Anderson, and Mike Clevinger, has had its ups and downs.When Carrasco returns, the most likely candidate to return to Triple-A would be Clevinger, but if Bauer’s struggles persist, it’s possible we see Anderson and Clevinger back in Cleveland to start down the road this season.

Avon Soars Over North Olmsted 45-10

first_img Related Topics Having a commanding lead going into half time, the Avon Eagles came out and were held scoreless by North Olmsted in the 3rd quarter with sophomore, Ryan Maloy who complete 46.7% of his passes coming into tonight.North Olmsted’s coach wanted to see who had it in them to come out and fight in the second half. Unfortunately, the 3 points in the first half and the 7 that would come in the fourth left coaches with a continued effort to produce. The coach also went on to say that the same problems from last week loomed over their heads again tonight. The Defensive coordinator for Avon gave credit to the Hall of Fame coaching staff of North Olmsted. He also went on to say that they prepared for the size of The Eagles and their run game, coming with the mind set to fill the gaps and step up to the challenge. “The kids did that…. And we did that well, except for a few plays.”Avon’s Head Coach, Mike Elder, spoke on Mason McLemore saying that “Their belief is that there is only so much tread on a tire, so why wear it out when you don’t have to? The kids are not selfish and they understand that belief which also gave the opportunity for kids that did not get to play in the first half a chance to get into the game. It also”He also feels that it takes time to create a passing game, but his coaches are smart and have the know how. Evidence of which shows in Avon also having some guys to watch in the college ranks with Jarryd  dressing at Mount Union and Sam Gerak who is committed to Northwestern for his domination of the offensive line and hid leadership on the team.Avon plays Midview next week and North Olmsted’s coach seems to think that this division will end up with Avon and Midview in the finals. I asked Avon’s coach was it too early to speculate and he said,  “the teams focus is the game at hand.” Elder also went on to say, “next week’s meeting with Midview has become quite a rivalry with Midview winning two years in a row and before that Avon had beat them 4 years in a row.“Rivalries happen because of parody… ya know. they’ve beaten us and we’ve beaten them…. and they’ve gotten the best of us lately. We’re just excited to have the opportunity to play them again.  It’s been a long wait to get to play them, so we’re excited!”  ~Mike Elder David Sprouse Follow NEOSI on twitter @neosportsinside and David Sprouse @djhouse2011.

The Avon Eagles (2-0-0) played host to the Eagles of North Olmsted (1-1-0) tonight. Avon coming in trying to find their identity offensively behind  Senior QB Matt Kelly and RB Mason McLemore. Avon took a step forward tonight defeating North Olmsted 45-10 in an electrified stadium. North Olmsted arrived prepared for the battle that would ensue however, the misalignments and poor kicking game made it very difficult to produce much against Avon, one of Ohio’s most winningest high school football programs.Avon pounded the run and aired it out several times racking up 42 points in the first half.There was no shortage of offensive play from North Olmsted though. The running attack from Senior Christopher Jones and QB Brandon Maximovich seemed to keep the ball moving for most of the game until turn overs and a big defensive line of Avon made it impossible to capitalize.last_img read more

The program will begin March 4, 2015 and will run thru September 7, 2015 and will operate on the Cameron County Beaches Access 5 & 6. This program is intended to address the negative impacts of domestic trash left behind by visitors of county beaches. This program began in 2010 as a pilot project and has shown great success in helping keep the beaches clean plus educating the public about the unsanitary environment and the detriment to human and marine life created by leaving trash behind.As a result of the Cash for Trash Return Refund Program, since the summer of 2010, over 500 tons of trash has been removed from North County beaches. Cameron County Commissioner Court has supported this endeavor since its establishment. Commissioner Sofia C. Benavides states, “This program has been a great success since its inception. I want to thank the public for their cooperation and continued participation in ensuring the preservation of our beaches for our future generations to enjoy.” She also states, “We want our beach visitors to enjoy a clean and safe beach.” Cameron County Parks & Recreation have supported other successful methods to combat the litter problem, such as the Texas Adopt A Beach Guardian Program, Valley Proud Environment Council-Captain Crab Clean Beach Program, Respeta Su Playa/Respect Your Beach Program and a County Park’s sponsored Code Enforcement program.Again, the Cash for Trash Return Refund Program will operate during our season’s busiest time, March 4, 2015 thru September 7, 2015. In addition to the general beach user fee of $5.00, Cameron County Park staff will collect an additional $5.00, which will be a trash bag deposit for every vehicle entering only County Beach Accesses 5 & 6, and then an empty trash bag will be provided with an attached receipt. As the visitors exit the beach, county staff will refund $5.00 in return for their receipt and county issued bag full of trash. The refund will only be issued for that same day, if the bag is full and if they return before 7:00 p.m.Trash left behind is not only unsightly, but is harmful to our environment, marine and wildlife habitat and more particularly humans. We ask the public, and the users to respect public lands and please observe all State and County Litter Laws. For any additional information regarding this program you may contact Joe E. Vega, Parks Director with the Cameron County Parks and Recreation Department, at (956) 761-3700 or by email at jevega@co.cameron.tx.us.Want the whole story?
