The Italian motorcycle company Aprilia withdrew this advert following complaints from the Women’s Institute of Spain, whose advertising monitoring wing considered it to be sexist.

Get $50 To Test Ride An Aprilia Or Moto Guzzi At Laguna Seca MotoGP
If you’re going to be at Laguna Seca for this weekend’s MotoGP race, be sure to stop by the Aprilia and Moto Guzzi booths, as both manufacturers are handing out $50 gift cards if you take a model from either manufacturer for a test ride.
To qualify for the gift card, simply visit the Aprilia or Moto Guzzi booths during the weekend. There, you’ll receive a postcard encouraging you to test ride an Aprilia or Moto Guzzi at a participating US dealership. Trade in the postcard for a test ride and you’ll get the gift card in the mail.
Test rides are one thing, but if you decide to purchase an Aprilia or Guzzi, the reward is even greater. If you buy a new Aprilia, you’ll get a limited edition Aprilia Racing helmet signed by the Aprilia World Superbike race pilots Sylvain Guintoli and Eugene Laverty. If you buy a new Guzzi you’ll receive a free leather jacket. Like the gift card, you’ll have to present a postcard to a participating dealership to claim your prize. Restrictions apply. Get the complete details at either manufacturer’s display.
Beyond handing out postcards, each OEM will have plenty to see and do in their booths this weekend, as both will have full product displays. For Aprilia, this means you’ll have the opportunity to see, in person, the RSV4 Factory APRC ABS SBK SE, RSV4 R APRC ABS, Tuono V4 R APRC, Shiver 750, Mana GT 850 ABS and the all-new Dorsoduro 750 ABS. Meanwhile, Guzzi will have on display the California 1400 Touring ABS, California 1400 Custom ABS, V7 Racer, V7 Special, V7 Stone, Griso 8V SE, Stelvio 1200 NTX and Norge GT 8V.
While at the Aprilia booth, you can get authentic team apparel — the same stuff the World Superbike team wears — by visiting the Aprilia Racing Factory Store. You can also enter to win an Aprilia SR Motard 50 scooter.
