The Aprilia RSV4 Factory is a racing machine that, in line with the Aprilia tradition, follows a completely innovative approach in its design and construction. Its narrow V engine, the use of state-of-the-art electronics, plus its lightness and extreme compactness are only a few of the features that make it unique in the world. Aprilia RSV4 Factory is designed and built with the same philosophy adopted by the Aprilia race division. This is why the RSV4 Factory is the most "complete" Superbike racing replica, ready for those who want to venture onto the track with a class leading motorcycle.
The engine of the RSV4 Factory is the most innovative and powerful Aprilia has ever built. A super-compact 999.6 cc 65? V-four cylinder engine designed for maximum power (177.5 horsepower), where powerplant engineering comes together with the finest materials and the most advanced electronic control solutions. Aprilia's engine, in fact, uses a ride-by-wire multi-map technology, a solution that opens up new frontiers for engine management, with practically infinite possibilities for further development. Besides the triple map ride-by-wire system, a sophisticated electronic injection system with two injectors and adjustable height ducts are fitted.
Aprilia RSV4 Factory's chassis is designed for the racetrack, with adjustment features that are typical of racing motorcycles. The adjustable geometry chassis allows parameters such as the position and angle of the headstock, the height of the swingarm pivot and even the engine position to be changed. The construction technology is also motorsports-derived: the RSV4 Factory chassis and swingarm are made of aluminum with variable section castings and pressings.
The components are the state-of-the-art in motorcycling technology: Ohlins Racing fork, rear monoshock and steering damper, Brembo monoblock callipers, forged aluminium rims.
DESIGN: the quest for ultimate compactness
Creating the most compact, innovative and gorgeous supersport bike on the market: a tough and intriguing challenge for Aprilia's style department! This is how RSV4 Factory was created, a motorcycle that sets new performance and riding standards while opening new horizons in ultra-sports motorcycle design. Just a few simple and distinctive styling elements highlight rather than conceal the specific technical features of the Aprilia RSV4 Factory. Its frame and engine stand out as fundamental elements of the motorbike's design. In line with Aprilia traditions, the design of RSV4 Factory does not focus merely on looks but it serves technology and performance. Every detail has been conceived not just to be unique and beautiful, but also and above all to be efficient.
The needs of the optimised dynamic intake system feeding the V4 defined the strong-charactered front, with extra-large air intakes that not only develop considerable pressure in the airbox (approx. 35 mb @ 280 km/h), but also completely separate the headlamps from the bottom of the fairing. This results in an absolutely unique style, never seen before on a sports motorcycle. The look of the RSV4 Factory is absolutely original, technological and definitely aggressive. The triple headlamp cites the original Aprilia RSV Mille that set new standards for sports twins in 1998.
Smaller, lower and narrower than any 4-cylinder bike before, the RSV4 Factory's extreme compactness is its strength, together with an almost obsessive pursuit of perfect ergonomics (crucial for perfect riding control), which has always distinguished Aprilia's road and World Championship dominating motorcycles.
In-depth aerodynamic studies minimized surfaces without compromising the bike's class-leading aerodynamics. The spectacular, ultra-compact tail fairing is one of the most distinctive features of this motorcycle. The LED taillight merges stunningly into the tail, offering excellent luminosity. Even the rear of the RSV4 Factory is absolutely unmistakable.
