THIS IS THE FASTEST RSV4 EVER.
Exclusive for the North American Market - the RSV4 RF LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION OF JUST 125 UNITS.
For the first time that any production motorcycled adopts winglets, aerodynamic spoilers developed by Aprilia Racing.
To coincide with the Grand Prix of the Americas, during the third round of the 2018 MotoGP World Championship season, Aprilia celebrates this extraordinary bike's tight bond with racing by presenting a special version of the RSV4 RF in a numbered edition. A further distinction of the Aprilia RSV4 RF Limited Edition is represented by the winglets, the aerodynamic spoilers made of carbon fiber. This is technology developed by Aprilia Racing directly on the RS-GP prototype used in the MotoGP World Championship and which, for the first time ever, is now also available for the Aprilia RSV4 too. The final indication of this model's exclusivity is the “Limited Edition” logo and the unit number laser inscribed on the steering plate.
Aprilia RSV4 is the natural evolution of an innovative project, capable in just a few years of dominating World SBK, earning seven world titles in six years and winning in its début in the FIM Superstock Cup, the championship dedicated to bikes that are closely derived from their factory versions.
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 performance, the best example of what can be achieved by exploiting the valuable experience of a victorious Racing Department like Aprilia’s which 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. 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 the racing bike.
The primary goal in creating the 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. Thanks to the experience in WSBK and MotoGP, Aprilia is able to transfer technologies to their factory products like the full Ride-by-wire throttle and the dynamic controls package, APRC.
