You forgot about Ellison on the CRT bike Jason.

You also failed to mention that Ant West's bike will be Aprilia powered with a possible Aprilia chassis as well.

More updates...
Also Pics of what "looks" to be a WSBK Aprilia RSV4.... but with parts of the chassis covered in Duct tape, a differet swingarm, running GP bridgestones and Carbon brakes, run with Aspar team personal.  Was VERY fast at the test with RDP onboard.
