WITH 294 GRAND PRIX RACES WON IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GP MOTORCYCLE RACING, APRILIA HOLDS THE RECORD FOR THE MOST WINS OF ANY EUROPEAN MANUFACTURER IN THE HISTORY OF MAXIMUM MOTORCYCLE COMPETITION. THESE ARE JOINED BY AN IMPRESSIVE 54 WORLD TITLES: 38 IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GP MOTORCYCLE RACING (20 IN 125 AND 18 IN 250), 7 IN SUPERBIKE (RIDER AND MANUFACTURER 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” SUPERBIKE 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. SUPERTECH APRILIA RSV4 RR IS AVAILABLE IN TWO ATTRACTIVE COLOUR SCHEMES, BOTH MATTE, ON A BLACK AND GREY BASE (BUCINE GREY AND ASCARI BLACK). ALSO AVAILABLE IN RACE PACK VERSION. 201HP ONLY 225 MM 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. NEW AIR BOX HIGH DUCTS NEW MM 7SM CONTROL UNIT WITH 64 MHZ OVERCLOCK 01POWER LOW DUCTS NEW FORGED CAMSHAFTS NEW CYLINDER HEADS NEW ENGINE CRANKCASE WITH REDUCED VENTILATION FRICTION LOSS TITANIUM EXHAUST VALVES NEW PANKL CONNECTING RODS NARROW V NEW LUBRICATION SYSTEM NEW LIGHTWEIGHT CRANKSHAFT V465° 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. RACE READY DUAL INJECTION 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 02CONTROL 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. ATC ALC AWC AQS 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. (Aprilia Traction Control) (Aprilia Launch Control) AUTO-CALIBRATION The APRC system is able to self calibrate to adapt traction control reaction to new tyres different from the original equipment. (Aprilia Wheelie Control) ROAD Shows road speed in the foreground, plus additional indications such as engine mapping and ATC setting, shift position, speedometer, temperature and clock. RACE Highlights the lap timer, shift position, engine mapping and ATC setting, with a smaller space for speed and temperature indications. (Aprilia Quick Shift) MODE BUTTON AND ATC SETTING JOYSTICK The AWC and ALC systems are set up from the instrument panel menu, using the “mode” button on the left of the handlebars. The ATC system, on the other hand, can be set to one of the eight available settings at any time, even with the throttle open, via a user-friendly joystick on the left of the handlebars. STARTER AND MAP SELECT BUTTON 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. RACING BRAKES ELONGATED SWINGARM Fully adjustable suspension that can be adapted to any type of route, whether track or road. 43 mm front fork and Sachs progressive monoshock absorber. STEERING DAMPER 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”.
