Create and Be a Legend...

THE APRILIA RACING TEAM USES ITS EXPERIENCE IN THE TOP WORLD COMPETITIONS TO CREATE THE NEW "FACTORY WORKS" VERSIONS OF THE AWARD WINNING APRILIA RSV4

AN EXTRAORDINARY RANGE OF "SPECIAL" HIGH PERFORMANCE BIKES PRODUCED AND SOLD DIRECTLY BY APRILIA RACING: THE RACING DIVISION WITH 54 WORLD TITLES WILL ALSO PROVIDE FIRST-HAND ASSISTANCE

The Aprilia RSV4 has the ultimate racing history for a single production-derived model.

This extraordinary 1000cc Italian V4 has won 7 titles in the Superbike World Championship from 2009 to today, besides winning the Rider and Manufacturers titles for the FIM Cup Superstock 1000, in 2015.

An exceptional racing career which stems from technical leadership, the model has consistently proved its worth as it keeps winning comparative trials organised by the world's top bike magazines.

Aprilia Racing, the Racing Division that has earned the Noale-based manufacturer 54 World Titles, introduced a program today to make the same technology that was developed for the championship winning bike available to anyone who wishes to compete in factory derivative championships or who wants an RSV4 with racetrack optimised performance.

Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Director comments on this extraordinary project by the racing division in Noale: "The RSV4 racing versions we are presenting at EICMA are, first and foremost, a unique opportunity that Aprilia Racing is making available to those who want to own a real race bike. At the Aprilia Racing Division we worked to pack all the know-how behind the RSV4 into these exceptional bikes: know-how which has made the RSV4 one of the top winning bikes in the history of production-derived bikes. The SSTK Championship victory this year is an addition to 7 world titles we've won in the SBK. Now all the experience we have acquired through these victories is available to whoever wants to race with our bike: both those who want to participate in championships and those who want to ride a real Aprilia Racing bike on the racetrack. We're making several levels of sophistication available. This is a racetrack optimised RSV4, from the SSTK version (in every way the bike that dominated the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup) all the way to the top, a full-fledged Superbike".

The program will create "Factory Works" bikes compliant with Superstock and Superbike Championship regulations in each country, with various levels of preparation in the engine and electric components and with a maximum configuration that exceeds 230 hp.


All versions start with the already exceptional technical base of the Aprilia RSV4 RR.

Aprilia Racing RSV4 R-Factory Works - Race Winning Aprilia Technology Now Available To All


RSV4-R Factory Works

Aprilia Racing, the Racing Division that has brought the Noale-based Manufacturer 54 world titles, introduces at EICMA 2015 the "Factory Works" program which makes the same technology developed for the world champion bike available to anyone who wants to compete in factory derivative championships or who simply wants to have an RSV4 with optimized performance for track use.

The Aprilia Racing “Factory Works” bikes will be developed and made available to customers in accordance with the regulations of the Superstock and Superbike championships in the various countries, with different chassis preparation, electronic and engine levels which, at the top configuration (picture), exceeds the threshold of 230 HP. All of the versions begin with the already exceptional technical base of the Aprilia RSV4 RR. In usual Aprilia Racing tradition, each component has been optimized for maximum performance whilst maintaining a high overall balance and a high level of reliability. This is why every Aprilia “Factory Works” bike is one that will cut a fine figure at any level of competition, but it is also an “attainable” dream for enthusiasts looking for an extraordinary track vehicle with the certainty that nothing can bring you closer to the sensations that a World Superbike champion feels.

Re: This Week: 2016 Aprilia RSV4 R-FW

Unread post by totalmotorcycle » Fri Mar 11, 2016 11:20 am

Ok, this model can be VERY confusing. It is the first time (modern) that a manufacturer has offered up so many choices in one model with the key of going from superbike to hyperbike to full on Superbike world championship (SBK) race bike.

Quite an amazing feat.


So the variants are the following all based on the Aprilia RSV4 R-FW:


RSV4 R-FW Stock1 MM Race
- An Aprilia RSV4 with Race Pack (Öhlins suspension and forged rims).
- Standard electronic system with an extra light lithium battery.
- ECU reprogrammed to Race version with race maps for engine and bike management, developed by Aprilia Racing.
- Settings reprogrammed for race use.
- Braking optimised and weight reduced, ABS removed
- Engine weight reduced without the water thermostat, with a simplified water tubes kit and secondary air system closed.
- Optional: Akrapovic exhaust kit, complete fairing kit, dedicated suspensions setting and complete engine optimisation.




RSV4 R-FW Stock2 APX Race
- An Aprilia RSV4 with Race Pack (Öhlins suspension and forged rims).
- Simplified, lightweight, racing version electronic system with dedicated bike and engine wiring and a lithium battery.
- APX2 logic unit developed by Aprilia Racing: ignition and engine control parameters may be programmed with the included hand terminal.
- Data acquisition system allows logging of original sensors as well as optional sensors allowed by FIM Superstock 1000 rules.
- Special Aprilia Racing instruments.
- Special engine with Aprilia Racing preparation.
- Optional: Akrapovic exhaust kit, complete fairing kit, dedicated suspensions setting.



RSV4 R-FW SBK
- An Aprilia RSV4 with Race Pack (Öhlins suspension and forged rims).
- Simplified, lightweight, racing version electronic system with dedicated bike and engine wiring and a lithium battery.
- APX2 logic unit developed by Aprilia Racing, complete with GPS module, ignition and engine control parameters may be programmed with the included hand terminal. The unit includes a data acquisition system with optional telemetry sensors kit.
- Special Aprilia Racing instruments with racing buttons.
- Electronic gearbox with assisted shifting (blipper).
- Special Aprilia Racing tools.
- Special engine with SBK preparation by Aprilia Racing.



RSV4 R-FW W-SBK
- Replica of the RSV4 Superbike used by the official Aprilia Racing Team in the SBK Wold Championship.
- Both the bike and the level of assistance may be tailor made in accordance with the budget and ambitions of each rider and team.
It is the best that can be desired and allows one to have a star role in the Superbike world championship.



RSV4 R-FW "MISANO"
- The bike presented at EICMA is a demonstration of the level of preparation possible through the "Factory Works" program and is the entry level for the W-SBK line.
- In true Aprilia Racing style each component has been optimised to offer the best in performance while maintaining elevated overall balance and reliability.
- It is a bike that can do well at any competitive level, while remaining "within reach" of enthusiasts who desire an extraordinary bike to exercise their racing skills, knowing that nothing can come closer to the rush felt by SBK World Championship champions.
- The colour scheme is a celebration of Aprilia's first victory in a "road racing" competition and underscores the exclusivity of the model


I hope that clears the air some. :)

It's a fast Italian superbike, so it at least deserves a solid cool. It feels like a bit of a last hurrah for a fairly old design though. This is basically the ultimate version of a bike that was first launched in the previous decade.

Voted Awesome as well.

Amazing that Aprilia has offered up four fully customized versions of their hot superbike. What a great idea!

230hp? Wow, that's amazing power as well. I wonder if we will see 300hp bikes in 10-20 years from now becoming the norm?
