It’s hard to describe the thrills of the track. But we can at least try.
Imagine the thrills of riding a motorcycle on a racing track. The shivers that run down your spine as you hit top speed, the flow of adrenalin as you accelerate on the bends, the sharp intake of breath as you power towards the finishing line. Welcome to the RSV4 Factory experience. A premium superbike at the top of its category, it is designed for riders who crave high performance without compromising the quality and safety levels that are synonymous with Aprilia.
Horsepower remains at an impressive 217 at 13000 rpm, already hard to beat, but it now meets the rigid Euro 5 criteria and breaks the 305 km/h barrier at top speed. The new Magneti Marelli ECU 11MP control system and a lighter exhaust with reduced thermal inertia further contribute to lowering emissions.
The RSV4 Factory sports the outstanding Öhlins Smart EC2.0 semi-active suspension system, which has been fine-tuned through a team effort involving both their engineers and the elite-squad from Noale. Tested on the toughest tracks including Imola and Mugello until both teams were completely satisfied with the results, the new and improved system delivers a significant improvement in both performance and that elusive, but hard to describe, riding “feeling”.
