Launch RRP: £12,000

What Is It?

The Aprilia RSVR Factory is a dedicated sports bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 997.6 cc 60° V-Twin four stroke engine, producing 140 bhp at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque at 7,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Twin spar Aluminium frame with and swingarm
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with four piston radial Brembo calipers
  • Rear 220 mm disc with single piston radial Brembo caliper
  • Braided brake lines
  • Adjustable Ohlins 43 mm upside down fork with 120 mm travel
  • Adjustable Ohlins rear shock with 133 mm travel
  • Adjustable Ohlins steering damper
  • Slipper clutch, LED tail light
  • 6 speed gearbox

The RSVR Factory is, rather confusingly, based on the old Gen 1 RSV Mille R while the original RSV Mille becomes the standard gen 2 RSVR sitting below the Factory.

A total of 4 kg has been shaved off the weight of the standard gen 2 RSVR by using fully adjustable Ohlins suspension front and rear, plenty of Carbon panels and 25% lighter forged Aluminium and anodised wheels. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 190/50 at the rear.

A small update in 2006 pushed the power up to 143 bhp with a new engine mapping, larger air intake and gold frame. They stopped making them in 2008 to focus on the RSV4 but you could still buy them new until around 2010.

Colours: Black/grey/red, red/black, white/grey/red, black/grey/gold
