The RSV4 is so much more than a bike with a powerful engine, it's the result of an ambitious project undertaken by the Aprilia Racing Division. They adopted the most cutting edge technology and developed a bike with integrated aerodynamic winglets, improved aerodynamic efficiency, 217 HP and more torque than ever before, which was all presented in the signature Aprilia chassis. This is a true masterpiece that is destined to send your pulses racing from the moment you set your eyes on it.
THE ULTIMATE SUPERBIKE
Once again, the Aprilia RSV4 has done the seemingly impossible, taking aerodynamic efficiency up another notch with its integrated aerodynamic winglets and a double-layered fairing. There is also the racing world-derived inverted swingarm and new electronics package with advanced APRC, a mighty 217 HP, increased torque and of course the unmistakable Aprilia chassis. Cruising through rounds of rigorous comparative testing the world over, the RSV4 has proved its mettle, rising to the occasion like a true champion.
The winglets are now integrated into the double fairing. Analysed using software and in the wind tunnel, their efficiency has been rigorously tested on the road and track by Aprilia Racing’s aerodynamic engineers. The result is a bike that delivers even greater stability, aerodynamics and performance than ever before.
An engine to set your heart racing
The latest RSV4 and RSV4 Factory models are powered by the same 1100 cc, the first mass-produced high-performance narrow V 4-cylinder in the world. Lightweight and compact like no other, it delivers torque of up to 125Nm at 10500 rpm. Horsepower remains at an impressive 217, already hard to beat, but it now meets Euro 5 criteria and breaks the 305 km/h barrier at top speed.
Designed for comfort
Improved ergonomics come in the form of a new fuel tank and through lowering both the seat and foot pedal-footrest by 9 mm, to create a more natural, relaxed riding position, even for taller riders.
Also new is the Magneti Marelli ECU 11MP control system for improved management of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension and a riding experience like never before.
