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.

2001: Re-styled fairing, fuel injection mapping, smaller / narrower plastic fuel tank, revised rear shock. Wet weight down 5kg to 215kg and the new fuel tank slightly lowered the centre of gravity. Optional Titanium exhaust system.

2002: Brembo four piston monobloc calipers (previously only available on the RSVR) and re-designed rear lights.

2003: Revised closer gear ratios, new exhaust system and re-designed tail.

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.

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