The Aprilia RSV4 R APRC ABS has a rich and successful racing heritage and has been derived from the company’s successful racing bikes over the years. The RSV4 was first introduced in 2009 and has evolved into a very capable machine over these years. Packed with modern technology and great ergonomics, the RSV4 R APRC ABS is one of the best litre-class bikes around.
The Aprilia RSV4 R APRC ABS is powered by a four-stroke longitudinal 1,000cc 65° V-4 cylinder engine, which has won the Italian manufacturer two WSBK championships in the past four years. The liquid-cooled engine produces 180bhp and 115Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox with a multiplate wet clutch. The exhaust system has an oxygen sensor and is laid out in a four into two into one layout.
The Aprilia RSV4 R APRC ABS can be switched into three modes- T (Track), S (Sport), R (Road). The APRC or Aprilia Performance Ride Control package for the bike, comes with a traction control (ATC), wheelie control (AWC), a track-only launch control (ALC) and a quick shift (AQS) system. The ATC can be adjusted while the bike is in motion while the AWC can be adjusted to three levels. The bike is also equipped with an antilock braking system (ABS).
The Aprilia RSV4 APRC ABS is available in two colours – Black Competition and Fluo Red. It goes up against other 1,000cc supersport motorcycles like the Yamaha YZF R1, Honda CBR1000RR, Suzuki GSX R1000, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and the BMW S1000RR
