Being a Racer is not a profession but a way of being,
something that is inside us, in our DNA.
If you love to get on your bike, feel the wind glide along
the fairing and watch the world go by through your visor,
we understand you.
We feel like that from our very first roar.

DOUBLE WIN IN 2010, 2012 AND 2014 AND MANUFACTURER IN 2013)
AND 9 IN OFF ROAD DISCIPLINES (7 IN SUPERMOTO AND 2 IN TRIAL).
TECHNOLOGY, INNOVATION: APRILIA HAS RACING IN ITS BLOOD,
IN ITS HEAD, IN ITS DNA.
“Aprilia Racing
is the most successful
European team”

TO CELEBRATE THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEW RSV4, APRILIA IS ALSO
OFFERING A LIMITED EDITION OF 500 NUMBERED UNITS CALLED
THE RSV4 RF, THAT COMES STANDARD WITH THE RACE PACK,
WHICH INCLUDES FORGED ALUMINIUM WHEELS AND ÖHLINS
SUSPENSION (SHOCK ABSORBER, FORK AND STEERING DAMPER),
AS WELL AS DEDICATED GRAPHICS.

THE REVOLUTION OF THE RSV4 STARTS FROM THE HEART OF THE BIKE, YOU CAN HEAR THE OVERWHELMING ROAR OF THE 65° V4 ENGINE
AND IS MEASURED BY THE FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE ON THE RACE CIRCUIT. THE 65° V4 ENGINE IS INDEED THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY
AND AT THE SAME TIME THE MOST POWERFUL EVER BUILT BY APRILIA.

Its “narrow” V architecture provides an
engine as compact as a twin-cylinder,
perfectly integrated in the chassis,
and at the same time, with an extreme
cylinder bore, improving performances
in terms of power and torque. Vibrations
mitigated thanks to a balancing
countershaft.

CASSETTE TYPE
GEARBOX
ADVANCED
ELECTRONICS
Intake system with ducts at variable
height based on the engine speed, which
optimises the level of torque requested
at every moment and at every speed.
Ultra-lightweight materials, such as
titanium and magnesium, reducing the
overall weight.
Advanced solutions also with regard
to the fuel system.
Two injectors per cylinder:
- one after the throttle valve for
excellent speed tractability
- the other, a fan pattern injector, in
the airbox, which comes into play at
higher loads and engine speeds, for
more effective fuel atomisation and
vaporisation and increased power
output. To ensure the right torque and
ideal power delivery in all situations.
The cassette type gearbox is a typical
racing solution for optimal engine
management on any track, thanks
to rapid gear ratio replacement and
short gearbox maintenance times.
The three lowest gears are spaced
closer for extra speed on the straight.
The clutch equipped with mechanical
slipper system improves control over
the engine brake and the bike’s stability
during any hard braking phase.
In the 65° V4, the most refined engine
engineering is combined with the most
advanced electronics with the new MM
7SM control unit with 64 MHZ overclock.
The Multimap Ride-by-Wire technology
offers endless possibilities in controlling
power delivery, with the possibility to
change the “character” of the bike,
selecting one of the three mappings
available on the handlebars:
T - TRACK Developed for top riders: the
optimal power delivery at every instant
and unmatched smoothness
S - SPORT A very reactive response to
the minimum actions on the twistgrip. For
the rider that wants to feel a seamless
connection with more than 200 hp
R - RACE Directly derived from Aprilia’s
SBK racing bikes: minimal engine brake
intervention during deceleration and
optimal throttle response at every
opening, for the ultimate lap time

The digital display offers two different screens that hold the most significant information for road and track use, respectively:
RSV4 RF AND RSV RR ARE ONE GENERATION AHEAD OF EVERYONE ELSE, ON THE TRACK AND ON THE ROAD, THANKS TO
THEIR NEW, EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE RIDE CONTROL PACKAGE, INTEGRATED WITH RIDE-BY-WIRE, DERIVED FROM THE
INCREDIBLE SUCCESS IN THE WORLD SBK CHAMPIONSHIP. A RELIABLE, CUSTOMISABLE ASSISTANT TO HELP YOU CONTROL
THE POWER OUTPUT AND TRACTION OF THE BIKE, SETTING NEW BENCHMARKS IN PERFORMANCE AND RESULTS.
FOR AN UNPRECEDENTED RIDING EXPERIENCE.

MAXIMUM TRACTION
IN TURNS
Helps to achieve better grip, thanks to
a patented “slip control” system, fine
tuning power delivery according to bank
angle. Smooth modulation gives the
rider a better feeling of the drive wheel,
allowing him to choose from 8 settings,
even while riding and without closing
the throttle, using a dedicated joystick.
The system includes an automatic setup
procedure to record and adjust to wheel
diameters so as to ensure accurate
response regardless of tyre and brand.
LIGHTNING-FAST
STARTS
It provides optimal power delivery
when setting off from a standing start,
working hand in hand with the wheelie
control system to maximise start-off
acceleration. It is set from the menu
on the dashboard on 3 levels, with
the bike standing still, and is then
“engaged” at the time of use.
TOTAL CONTROL
UNDER ACCELERATION
Optimal acceleration control is achieved
by a patented ”wheelie detection”
control system that gently places
the wheel back down onto the road.
The system has three settings that
can be selected at standstill
independently of the other systems.
GEAR CHANGE
IN MILLISECONDS
This electronic gear change system
allows you to shift up without using the
clutch and without closing
the throttle, reducing the decrease in
engine speed and improving lap time on
the track. There are 3 system kick-in
calibrations according to three
different engine rpm thresholds.

AUTO-CALIBRATION
The APRC system is able to self calibrate to adapt
traction control reaction to new tyres different from
the original equipment.

settings at any time, even
with the throttle open, via
a user-friendly joystick on
the left of the handlebars.

03BALANCE
ABSOLUTE BALANCE. THE CHASSIS WAS DESIGNED AROUND THE 65° V4 ENGINE,
TO ATTAIN PERFECT CENTRALISATION OF MASSES. A RESULT OPTIMISED BY THE
POSITION OF THE TANK, WITH FUEL MOSTLY UNDERNEATH THE SADDLE, TO REDUCE
THE BALANCE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FULL AND EMPTY.
RACE-READY
ADJUSTMENTS
For the first time on a standard bike, in addition to fully adjustable suspension, the rake and position of the headstock can
also be adjusted, as well as the height of the rear end, of the swingarm pin and even the engine position. No other bike on the
market provides, with this ease, such a high level of customisation. With Aprilia RSV4, you go on the track and are first right away!
The steering damper guarantees
impeccable high speed stability
and millimetre precision
in setting the bike up for turns.
The frame is a masterpiece of
technology in full view, made with cast
and pressed elements, according to
Aprilia’s tradition. It boasts a high
level of torsional and bending rigidity
for perfect control and feeling when
entering and completing a turn. Also the
swingarm, the result of Aprilia’s racing
experience, is a rigid and ultra-light
“mix” of cast and pressed aluminium
elements, providing exceptional
reactivity when setting the suspension.

RSV4 RR and RSV4 RF adopt the highly advanced
RACE ABS as standard. The new anti-lock braking
system was conceived to guarantee maximum safety
on the road, but it was developed to help obtain
optimum performance on the track. Aprilia worked in
close cooperation with Bosch to define optimum
calibration of the ABS 9MP unit, which represents
the utmost in refinement and technology available
today. The system weighs in at a record 2 kg.
THE ONLY STANDARD BIKE THAT IS CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU. RSV4 RR IS THE FIRST STANDARD FOUR CYLINDER BIKE THAT IS TRULY “TRACK READY”. THANKS TO A
REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY, THE COMPONENTS, THE MOST ADVANCED RACING TECHNOLOGY CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AND THE ENDLESS SETTING POSSIBILITIES:
