The RSV4 Factory replaces the RSV 1000 R and is rumoured to have cost £20 million to develop, with no areas skimped on, in order to create the best superbike.
Apparently the engineers wanted the shortest engine and longest swingarm possible for the best traction, while also trying to focus the centre of gravity and keep overall weight down.
The forged 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
Accessories include the Ohlins TTX36 rear shock, Akrapovic racing exhaust system, Carbon exhaust protection and tank cover.Did You Know?
The RSV4 was Aprilia's first four cylinder bike with the engine designed entirely in-house.
Up And Down The Range
The RSV4 R is based on the Factory but loses some of the high performance elements and shaves £2,550 off the RRP.
You get a Showa instead of Ohlins fork and shock, cast Aluminium wheels instead of forged and no lightweight Carbon Fibre bits.
