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.

The top witnesses to the exceptional racetrack performance of the Venetian V4 are the riders, of course. Alvaro Bautista rode the Aprilia RS-GP, a bike that has never been shy about its origins as a street-based project, in the MotoGP World Championship this season. The Spanish champion provides an overview: "The RSV4, including the street version, is truly a race bike fit for everyday driving. I've tried it and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The racing versions are bikes optimised for the racetrack and for competitions. What Aprilia is offering riders and advanced enthusiasts is a rare opportunity, a chance to own a real race bike, one that is prepared for championship racing. The V4 is a full-fledged racing engine, one that even we members of the MotoGP team race against pure prototypes".

Lorenzo Savadori won this season's SSTK World Championship with the RSV4: "I raced in the Superstock 1000 World Championship with the Nuova M2 Racing team supported by Aprilia this year. My RSV4 RF was prepared by Aprilia Racing itself in compliance with Stock regulations. The standard version of this bike is exceptional in and of itself, but, with Aprilia Racing doing the preparation, the competitive level went up and we won the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup in our debut season! Who better to optimise this engine for a victory in any championship than Aprilia Racing?"
