More than one second per lap faster than before, thanks to the new –hlins 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.RSV4 RR A new era
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.65° V4 INCOMPARABLE ENGINE
The primary and unique characteristics of this gem of Italian technology, the ones that led to the creation of the best superbike of all times, remain unchanged. This s the world's first full scale production motorcycle with a high performance, arrow V4 engine, the most revolutionary and powerful engine ever built by Aprilia. An engine that has been made unmistakable because of the use of 'total’ electronics, because of its extremely compact size and light weight.Superbike frame
Aprilia is known as one of the best chassis manufacturers in the world and the RSV4 represents the synthesis of the technical prowess Aprilia has acquired in top level world championships. A particularity which is still exclusive to the RSV4 RR and RF (and which has always been a characteristic of the previous generation RSV4 models) is the exceptional possibility of adjustments that the standard equipment chassis Is able to offer. In fact, the Aprilia is the only superbike that allows the rider to adjust the engine position in the frame, the headstock angle, the swingarm pivot and the rear end height, naturally in addition to the fully adjustable suspension. Just like a real racing bike. The RF version of the RSV4 earns new and more sophisticated suspension systems with fine adjustments both in hydraulics and spring preload: the fork is a latest generation 6hlins NIX unit, as is the TIX shock absorber; the latter is operated by new progressive linkage that increases the reaction lime of the shock absorber itself. There is also an adjustable steering damper, also supplied by Ohlins. On the new RSV4, Aprilia introduces important changes in the Brembo braking system: the front relies on a pair of new 5 mm thick steel discs with diameter increased to 330 mm, gripped by the monobloc M50 calipers filled with new superior friction coefficient brake pads.Advanced APRC
The Aprilia RSV4 RR and RF make perfect what was already top shelf in the previous versions thanks to a significant improvement to its already exceptional dynamic controls package designed and patented by Aprilia. APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) is the well-known dynamic control suite derived directly from the winning technology in world Superbike, the most complete and refined of those currently available on the market.
