The SXV was born from Aprilia’s experience in motorcycle competitions. During its long life, the SXV has received many upgrades which help it remain among the top dogs from in its segment.
The motorcycle is powered by the modern 45.2 77° V twin engine which is one of the most compact units in its class. The engine has a maximum speed of 12,500 rpm (450 motard) and is paired with a five speed gearbox.
This strong engine is combined with similarly strong brakes. Thereby, the SXV features FTE calipers and lightweight wave discs (320 mm at the front) for maximum braking control even under the most challenging conditions. The 240 mm rear disc is braked by a single piston caliper for a perfect combination of power and control.
Other highlights include the mixed trellis and aluminum frame, a strong swingarm and the central exhaust system with twinned silencers under the rear mudguard.
