What Is It?

The Aprilia RSV Mille is a dedicated sports bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 997.6 cc 60° V-Twin four stroke engine, producing 128 bhp at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque at 7,250 rpm. 

Features include:

  • Aluminium win spar frame and swingarm
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with two piston calipers
  • Rear 220 mm disc with single piston caliper
  • Showa 43 mm upside down fork with 120 mm travel
  • Rear shock with 135 mm travel
  • Basic slipper clutch, fuel injection
  • 6 speed gearbox

Most of the competition use 90° engines but the narrow V-Twin angle of the RSV yields a more compact engine at the expense of smooth running. To counter the vibrations Aprilia designed in dual balance shafts and there is even an after market re-mapped chip which can add another 10 horses if needed.

Elsewhere there is an LCD speedo, shift light, clock, temp gauge and highest top speed this session switch.

The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 190/50 at the rear.

Colours: Red, black/grey/red, yellow/red

Review In A Few

What's Good?

  • Lightweight
  • Looks good
  • Compact
  • Lights

Any Downsides?

  • Rear brake feel
  • Confusing dash
  • Side stand
  • High seat

Up And Down The Range

The higher spec and lighter RSV Mille R launched in 2000 for £2,000 extra. Notable differences include fully adjustable Ohlins suspension and damper, forged wheels, Carbon mudguard, Brembo brakes and shorter single seat sub-frame.

The top of the line RSV Mille SP, of which only 150 were produced, appeared for racing homologation. It cost the best part of £23,000 new so don't expect to see many for sale or even on the road.
