Awesome. Considering it undercuts the HP4's price and is so close in specs that it's only noticed by the best of the best racers...

The electronics are awesome, wheelie control, launch control, ABS, traction control... Plus the fact that it can all be turned off, it's just plain and simple awesome.

This thing has more tech features and gadgets than the space shuttle. They sure have come a long way from their moped days. I voted "cool".

Voted Awesome

I couldn't have said it better myself. Yes and with the Aprilia brand name (who also owns Moto Guzzi.. hehe), it's awesome +. But comfort, that would be a distance uncool for anything other than a hour or less ride (for me anyways).

The bike looks like an ugly mishmash of designs they stole off various bikes from Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Honda. :?

Funny you should mention that as when I read what you wrote it made me think, I wonder if we will look back and say "This is what a new millennium UJM looks like" vs the 80's UJM we all know today...

That look is a very successful design, thus it's very popular for sure. Although, there is more attention to the finer details (fit and finish) in an Aprilia than the others, and sometimes, that's the big difference.

It's not the latest and greatest (compared with the Panigale and HP4 at least), but it's still an awesome engine in an awesome bike. I'm glad they're using that engine in other models like the Tuono and Caponord.

I would agree that the RSV4 is a bit homely, but it is still much better looking then the Hypermotard. The Penigale is almost as gorgeous as MV Agusta's F4 which compels the question of how any Italian company could create anything us hideously ugly as the Rivale.

Obviously, moto attractiveness is subjective but I did not give even the Rivale a fail just on appearance.

The RSV4 earns an easy Cool.

I absolutely LOVE this bike! I have wanted an Aprilia sportsbike for a while now but wouldn't get one in Houston, too many horrible roads (pavement is awful here due to shifting ground). I vote this one awesome!!!

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC is..

Awesome (3 points) 60% [ 24 ]
Cool (2 points) 30% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 3% [ 1 ]
Fail (0 point) 8% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 40

= a Coolwall Factor of 80.8%


NOTES: Wow, a great voter turnout = a great voter result! 80.8% rockets the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC up to our #4 spot on the 2013 Cool Wall (#1 is 83%, #2 82% and #3 81%). For a bike some have called "a modern UJM" the Aprilia really does stand out to the majority of riders. Could be the wonderful V4 engine, might be a high quality (and class) Aprilia name or maybe even the price. The magic is definitely there whatever it is.

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
