At first glance, Aprilia’s RSV4 and Nissan’s GT-R have very little in common. One’s a two-wheeled, $22,000 Italian sport bike; the other an $80,000 Japanese supercar known for hunting down competitors on the Nürburgring.
That said, both are performance-tuned machines packed full of computerized technologies designed to make the driver — er, rider, in the RSV’s case — faster. To illustrate this point, Aprilia took both to the Monticello Motorsports Park, placed expert pilots with each, and let ‘em loose in a two-lap battle.
Both are reportedly stock vehicles, all the way down to the tires, and some suggested the 2010 GT-R would have an advantage on this curvy course. The result was close, but who won? Check out the video below to see for yourself.
