PostSubject: Simoncelli planning SBK outing   Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:26 pm

Marco Simoncelli is planning to take part in the first two rounds of the World Superbike Championship next season with Aprilia.

The 250cc world champion races a Gilera-badged Aprilia in the world championship.

"Aprilia have asked me to run in the first two races of the Superbike championship in 2009, because they care a lot for it," Simoncelli told Motosprint magazine.

"I've long thought about it and I think I'm going. Yes, I really think I'll race there because I like the idea of experiencing that."

The Italian already tested the Aprilia RSV4 at Valencia earlier this year.

"I really liked the bike," he said. "It's fun, it's quick, and it's easier than a 250cc because its power output is smoother. At Valencia I did just a few laps, without practically touching the set-up and in fact engine braking was disabled, yet I was quick immediately.

"So, the potential is there. The idea of racing it, at this point, is making me eager to do it."
