Aprilia plans mid-size sportsbikes by 2012

Piaggio issued its development plan for 2009-2012 on Friday and while most of the news is relatively boring, there is one extremely interesting tidbit.

As for motorcycles, the Group intends to work on the growth of different brand names, also through the development of sport bikes with mid-sized engines.

It'd only be speculation to guess a capacities and configurations, but since Aprilia is Piaggio's sportsbike brand and participates in Superbike racing as a way to market its products, it'd make sense for that mid-size sportsbike to fit into current racing classes.

What's mid-size? How many cylinders? Can the SL-series engine be scaled down below 750cc? Where did I put Galluzzi's cell number? And why is France?
