The 2013 Aprilia MXV 450 is a versatile off road bike designed to be able to tackle anything you’ll throw at it.
At its heart lies a 77° V twin four stroke, liquid cooled, single overhead cam engine with rocker operated exhaust valves, chain timing drive, 4 valve heads and titanium valves. The engine is fed by a 7.4 liters fuel tank and is mated on a 4 speed transmission. The V twin unit is linked to a performing exhaust system that is placed under the seat.
The strong engine is combined with a set of capable brakes that include front Nissin floating calipers and super-lightweight 270 mm wavy discs, while out back there is a 240 mm disc with single piston Nissin caliper.
The 2013 Aprilia MXV 450 is offered with a starting price of $ 9,229.

Not long ago, Aprilia decided to enlarge their success area from supermoto (SXV ) and enduro (RXV ) to motocross with the MXV 4.5 model. Don’t be fooled by the bike’s similar looks as Aprilia spent a lot of time modifying the platform in order to prove efficient for motocross riding. The frame and fuel tank suffered radical changes, while the engine has been worked on from airbox to exhaust.
The 2010 edition of the world’s toughest rally, Dakar, will see Team Giofil’s riders – Paolo Ceci, Gerard Farres, Francisco Lopez and Alex Zanotti – competing on the barely revealed Aprilia MXV 450 Africa.
This is the latest version of the bike that brought the team the last two consecutive Rally of the Pharoahs wins (in 2008 and 2009) and third place overall in 2009.
Although based on the standard MXV 4.5 model, the four competition bikes that Aprilia will supply Team Giofil with are all powered by a seriously modified engine and strengthened chassis, the bodywork and navigation equipment being actually the least stressful part when preparing any bike for 16 days of hell on earth.
Teams will be setting off on January 1 and surrender weapons on January 17, 2010.
