APRILIA REVEALS NEW LIMITED EDITION – RSV4 FACTORY AND TUONO V4 FACTORY
The newest evolutions of the RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory feature limited edition liveries that accentuate elevated aerodynamics, ergonomics and aesthetics powered by an industry-leading high-performance 65-degree V4 engine
Aprilia USA has revealed new versions of its category leading superbike and hypernaked, the RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory, celebrated for their famous 65-degree narrow V4 platform derived from championship winning experience in World Superbike, now with a new limited edition colorway for both models.
The new V4 models capitalize on a culmination of studious efforts in applied aerodynamics. Significant time spent in a wind tunnel has led to a shape and aesthetic with an ultra-modern look and extremely low aerodynamic resistance. This careful design presents significant performance benefits at high speeds with increases in airbox pressure and downforce.
Along with the aerodynamics, the new V4 Factory models have entirely new and improved ergonomics to maximize rider comfort. The newly designed fuel tanks and saddle allow a rider to fit perfectly with the fairings while still allowing a comfortable amount of onboard space for a more natural and relaxed riding position.
The revamped 1,099cc V4 engine of the RSV4 Factory is stronger than ever and is the most powerful ever built by Aprilia, with an incredible 217 horsepower, while the more upright Tuono V4 makes an impressive 175 horsepower thanks to its 1,077cc V4.
Both models include the new six-axis Marelli 11MP ECU, full ride-by-wire throttle and refined APRC operating system. Along with the introduction of multi-level engine braking control, both Factory models feature six riding modes, three for the track and three for the road (three of which are customizable modes). These riding modes allow best-fit settings for traction control, wheelie control, engine braking and ABS to be calibrated at the touch of a button. Both the RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory come fitted with forged aluminum wheel rims, a semi-active Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension system and Brembo Stylema brakes.
The RSV4 and Tuono V4 standout thanks to a triple LED front headlight unit with perimeter DRL lights that showcase the signature Aprilia sportbike look. Also included are Aprilia’s cornering lights, a feature that allows for increased visibility while turning by utilizing supplementary lights to illuminate the inside of a turn.
2023 Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory 1100 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Developed on the track, but always ready for the road
The Tuono V4 Factory leaves you in little doubt that it is all about thrills, adrenalin and pure unadulterated fun. Designed for the most demanding riders, who aren’t shy about hitting the track, it comes a standard component that is anything but standard, in the form of Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension.
Power and electronic controls for impeccable performance
Powered by a four-cylinder 65° V engine with unique characteristics, the narrow V architecture delivers improved weight distribution and allows for a more contained chassis. The maximum power of 175 horsepower at 11350 rpm and top torque of 121 Nm at 9000 rpm conform with Euro 5 requirements, further boosted by a new, lightweight exhaust. Also new is the Magneti Marelli 11MP ECU, with its data calculation capacity to create sophisticated algorithms for improved power and performance.
Racing stability and agility
The chassis, already recognised as a benchmark in efficiency and feeling, is further improved with the addition of a new lightweight aluminium swingarm with a lower reinforced brace. Designed to lower masses and increase stability, it was tested on Aprilia bikes that dominated the World SBK and further developed with MotoGP in mind.
The famed Aprilia control package is more comprehensive than ever with the introduction of adjustable engine braking and a total of six Riding Modes, three each for both road and track. All the rider has to do is select their preferred setting and functions including Traction Control, Wheelie Control, engine brake and ABS among others, are automatically calibrated to deliver the perfect riding experience.
Improved ergonomics, more enjoyable riding
The new design puts the focus on ergonomics with a new fuel tank, and the seat lowered by 9 mm, increasing spaciousness and creating a more comfortable fit with the fairing and a more natural and relaxed riding position, even for taller riders.
Daytime Running Lights
Distinctive design features include reduced surfaces and the typical fairing, which now houses a new triple configuration of LED lights and DRLs with the “bending lights” function.
