Aprilia RSV4 evolves radically to continue being the best superbike ever the result of an extraordinary and winning project, born out of Aprilia’s successful racing experience. More than one second per lap faster than before, thanks to the new Öhlins suspension systems, the new braking system and the new APRC electronic controls package that includes Cornering ABS and the Downshifter. The 201 hp Euro 4 engine combines with a seven-time world superbike champion chassis architecture.
Unanimously acclaimed by critics and sought after by bikers from every corner of the globe, the RSV4 has always been the undisputed segment representative, the reference point for sportiness and performance, the best example of what can be achieved by exploiting the valuable experience of a victorious Racing Department like Aprilia’s which, in its brief history has taken 54 championship titles. Skills honed on the track and transferred to the factory product to provide everyone with the same excitement that the motorbikes prepared by Aprilia Racing do.
The primary goal in creating the new RSV4 was the same one that has set this model apart from its birth in 2009: to be the absolute best uncompromising superbike, the one that comes the closest to the current Aprilia racing bikes in terms of performance and effectiveness. Thanks to the experience acquired in the most selective speed championships such as WSBK and MotoGP, Aprilia is able to transfer technologies to their factory products like the new full Ride-by-wire throttle and the dynamic controls package, APRC, further advanced.
