Aprilia’s "Factory Works" has couped up a 215 hp RSV4
Aprilia Racing christened its ‘Factory Works’ project which allowed customers to get access to their special, high-performance machines that begins life as the extraordinary 201 hp RSV4. It was the single most exciting thing to come out of the 2015 EICMA convention which got every moto aphrodisiac’s blood racing.
For the 2017 EICMA stand, Aprilia brings in the 2018 version of the RSV4 superbike that has been now primmed up to 215 hp, courtesy a weight saving program and some fancy equipment kits altering the engine components and bodywork.
The MotoMorphic JaFM#1 is the unique creation of Victor Komunytsky and Jim Davis, the proud ex-owners of a small repair shop and a small motorcycle selling business. We are saying “ex” because the two had to sell their business in order to fully concentrate on finishing their dream machine.
Taking a closer look at this motorcycle, we realize that the two builders don’t have bad taste at all. In fact, this thing is built on a custom chassis made of 6061-T6 tubing and CNC machined billet 6061 with incorporated gas tank. The swingarm is made in-house as well while the fork was provided by Ohlins, the monoshock by Penske and the brakes are fancy Brembo units. What actually sets this bike apart from anything else we’ve seen before are definitely the outrageously big wheels. Is there any point in mentioning that the base motorcycle (or better yet, donor bike) is an Aprilia Falco?
The guys at MotoMorphic also took the time to properly promote their creation so here is some action footage of the bike.
