A NEW ERA OF AN INCOMPARABLE ENGINE
THE APRILIA RSV4 HAS ALWAYS SET THE BAR IN TERMS OF SPORTINESS AND PERFORMANCE, THE BEST EXAMPLE OF JUST WHAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED WHEN DRAWING ON THE VALUABLE EXPERIENCE OF A WINNING RACING DEPARTMENT LIKE THAT OF APRILIA WHICH, IN ITS BRIEF HISTORY, HAS EARNED 54 WORLD TITLES, SEVEN OF WHICH IN THE WORLD SBK CHAMPIONSHIP. SKILLS HONED ON THE TRACK AND TRANSFERRED TO THE PRODUCTION RANGE, TO PROVIDE EVERYONE WITH THE SAME EXCITEMENT OFFERED BY APRILIA RACING MOTORBIKES.
Unmistakeable in its applied technology, the RSV4 is conceived around a 65° V4 engine never before seen on a factory sport bike, and a frame which is the heir to a dynasty that has won 18 titles and 143 Grand Prix races in the 250 GP class
Aprilia is the first manufacturer to adopt the Ride-By-Wire multimap accelerator as standard and the first to patent the APRC dynamic control system, with the exclusive features of self-calibration and wheelie control.
The ratio between torsional stiffness and flexibility is one of the secrets behind the RSV4 chassis architecture’s success. The frame and the swingarm both exploit pressed and cast elements that are welded to one another.
