Official Video / Aprilia RSV4 Factory/R

Right from the start, the Aprilia RSV4 Factory set the benchmark in the supersport category and has evolved year after year without losing any of the extraordinary dynamic balance which helped it win five WSBK titles. Unparalleled for its clarity of design and technology, the RSV4 ABS was designed around the only 4-cylinder 65° V engine ever to be fitted as standard to a road bike. The frame is the direct descendant of a dynasty which has won 18 titles and 143 grand prix in the 250 GP class and the bike has then been further enhanced by highly developed electronic management systems to improve both engine performance and handling.
