Aprilia RSV4 R is the result of a project developed with the precise aim of redefining the parameters of a sporty bike. It's the utmost expression of the Aprilia culture: Races, Passion and Technical innovation.
After astonishing the entire world of enthusiasts by demonstrating the extraordinary competitiveness of the RSV4 right from the start, Aprilia's launch of the " R " version will take it back to the top of the supersports market.
RSV4 R is an on-the-road racing bike that offers everyone the fantastic mix of power and dynamic equilibrium typical of the most sophisticated competitive vehicles. RSV4 R is powerful, but accessible and easy to use, combining record power and weight levels with grace of handling, power delivery and electronics to guarantee the best overall performance.
Today's level of technology is such that forward leaps are more and more difficult.
With the RSV4 project, Aprilia has accepted the challenge: the bike took shape on a blank piece of paper, without any influences or heritage from existing models.
