Aprilia has brought a new limited edition RSV4 to the US market. Called the RSV4 Factory APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) Special Edition, this special edition was developed using data from this year’s Superbike Championship and is equipped with a new electronic management system that includes traction control, wheelie control, launch control and quick shift.
The new bike is powered by a water cooled, 999cc, 65° V4 engine that develops 180 HP and 115 Nm of torque. The APRC package uses an automotive inertial platform with two turn meters and two accelerometers that enable the ECU to track dynamic conditions and adjust engine control consequently. The rider can adjust any component of the APRC system independently at will.
Also, the RSV4 Factory APRC SE is the first Aprilia bike that comes with the Aprilia Quick Shift as standard. Basically, the quick shift shortens spark advance for an instant and then gradually restores it, making for super-fast shifting with no need to close the throttle or use the clutch. The system works hand in hand with the new closer spaced gearbox to limit RPM drop during shifting for faster lap times.
Press release after the jump.
Aprilia initially thought at the RSV4 R superbike as to an affordable version of the RSV4 Factory and ended up calling it “the world’s most exclusive motorcycle.” While we cannot agree with the Italian motorcycle manufacturer on that matter as their Factory model is obviously the uncompromising and much more expensive motorcycle (which is precisely what makes it exclusive), we do like the fact that performance figures haven’t been reduced and they still managed to offer it for a $16K price tag.
When hearing the words Italian supersports motorcycle, most people think at the Ducati Desmosedici RR, but the Aprilia RSV4 Factory is a new bike with its own plan for success. Resuming, it is powered by a 1000cc V-four engine developing 180 horsepower and 115 Nm, while weighing in at 394.6 lbs dry.
We do thrust Italians when it comes to engine performance and weight reduction although style is what makes their rides stand out immediately and the RSV4 Factory makes no exception. So this is pretty much an exotic superbike with the performance to match its looks. Read more after the jump.
We rarely get to see an entirely new and truly amazing addition to the supersport category, but the year 2009 has been very bountiful from this point of view and, at least now, nobody has reasons to complain. While Japan carried on the refinement side, manufacturers in Europe concentrated on adding new, fierce competitors to challenge the old square in Japan. Ducati was already a strong player on the market, BMW introduced their all-new and extremely potent S 1000 RR and Aprilia comes with a unique recipe for success, one that is resumed by the RSV4 Factory model name.
Features such as the new 65-degree V4 engine displacing 999.6cc and the new ride-by-wire engine management system as well as the multi-adjustable perimetral aluminum alloy frame and Öhlins Racing suspension are sure to position the 2009 Aprilia RSV4 Factory on a well-deserved place in the top three greatest liter bikes on the market today.
