Alitalia returns to motorsport sponsorship after two decades, this time on two wheels rather than four. But while the Aprilia RSV4 is a great bike, the legendary Lancia Stratos remains incomparable...

Italy's national airline, Alitalia will be sponsoring Aprilia's world superbikes team this year - the RSV4 bikes ridden by Max Biaggi and Leon Camier will carry the Alitalia livery. Alitalia used to sponsor Lancia and Fiat in the world rally championship in the 1980s and older rally fans are likely to remember the very cool Alitalia race livery used on the iconic Lancia Stratos.

We don't know if Biaggi can still win the WSBK championship, but it sure is good to see Alitalia back in the fast lane. And as for the RSV4, here are more pics of the bike - pics that you'll love!

The legendary Lancia Stratos, tested by Top Gear. Even the very talented Stig can barely control all that Italian brio...   :-D
