2004 Aprilia RSV Mille R

Factory is a magic word immediately conjures up the world of and special bikes for special who fully appreciate the thrill of riding. The RSV 1000 R Factory is the top in the RSV 1000 R range. It is a refined bike which is awesomely on the track.


The RSV 1000 R Factory is an enhanced RSV R, i.e. the top twin-cylinder supersport The twin V60 Magnesium engine and new RSV R settings together with ultralight materials and the world’s quality production components the RSV 1000 R Factory up to track-riding

The Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory is the expression of Aprilia’s technological and heritage.

A project for those who maximum track-riding performance. the models which came it, the Factory includes the very motorcycle technology at a reasonable with an incomparable price/quality-component for its category.

An RSV 1000 R raised to the power, modified and further with the best possible

The most important parts mark the difference between the RSV R Factory and the RSV 1000 R are:


Fully adjustable fork

Adjustable Ohlins absorber

Ohlins steering fitted as standard

Forged aluminium wheels

saddle with nonslip seat

Matt black frame

Carbon parts

The RSV 1000 R Factory is fitted the world’s best components in order to reduce weight), and devices and parts have taken directly from the of racing. This is important in of design and production, and makes the RSV R Factory a precise reference not only for other twin-cylinder but above all for other supersport It is the perfect balance between technology, components and finish.

The best, offered however at an competitive price.

Of course all the innovations introduced on the new RSV 1000 R are on the Factory too, which can count on current state of the art and suspension.

No change to the V60 Magnesium fitted to the RSV 1000 R, with the innovative features and high performance. It pumps out 138.72 hp kW) at 9,500 rpm with a maximum of 107 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The double-silencer has a three-way catalytic converter Lambda sensor which the RSV 1000 R Factory within the 2 limits.

The Factory has the same light frame as the RSV 1000 R, from its black colour gives it a slightly more look. The double banana arm is also the same, not polished but to resist surface wear

The 43 mm upside-down Ohlins Racing is titanium nitride coated to smoothness. Its special structure elongated sleeves and shortened reduces the load on two critical of the forks themselves (the bush and stanchion-leg coupling). The travel is 120 mm.

Like the racing the fork rebound, compression and may be precision adjusted.

The forged brake calliper mounting allows the new radial callipers to be perfectly in line with the GP and world SBK trends.

The rear Racing shock absorber directly from experience on the It is fitted with a separate back nitrogen cylinder into the body. It has adjustable compression, preload and length in to lift and lower the rear and adjust the suspension to different styles and different race

Among the optional components is a tyre pressure measuring to keep the alignment under control according to the settings and


The best deserves the best braking and the RSV 1000 R Factory is once on the leading edge of technology, a radial clamp front system developed by Aprilia with Brembo. Aprilia is not new to this kind of technology. It was in the first to use this sophisticated system, fitted to a 250 GP.

The benefits for the rider are:

effective braking

More response to the driver’s actions. Any lever movement due to calliper is almost completely eliminated radial mounting prevents any of the calliper itself.

Longer pad With radial mounting, the work more in line the disc, precisely because the is kept more strictly with its theoretical working even when under stress. This lengthens pad basically because better leads to more even wear.

Better system and consequently less difference hot and cold performance.

The 320 mm front steel discs use lowered to minimize weight and inertia, to more effective handling. The system on the RSV 1000 R Factory is with a radial pump to the most sophisticated braking currently fitted to a production

The rear braking system is a Gold Series with 220 mm stainless steel disc and a (32 mm diameter) calliper.

Both the and rear systems use braided lines taken from the industry, which eliminate the pressure smoothing effect of lines and ensure maximum precision.

What particularly and distinguishes the Aprilia RSV 1000 R is the care taken in construction and paid to every single and part. This attention to an increase in performance, feel and through a decrease in weight and improvement in product quality and

An exclusive two-chamber steering from the specialist Ohlins line is fitted as standard. It may of be adjusted to adapt the bike’s to various riding conditions.

The use of carbon components make the even lighter and more The mudguards and several parts of the are made of extremely light carbon composite. Furthermore the RSV R Factory headstock shaft is of aluminium and not steel, which contributes to reducing the overall of the bike.

The exclusively designed wheels deserve a particular since they are definitely one of the distinctive parts of the bike, not aesthetically, but also technically. are forged from Anticorodal aluminium using an 8,000 ton press. This technique wheels without defects or the which may always result the casting process, and gives exceptional mechanical characteristics.

analysis was used to find the design, which came out to be a wheel with six spokes and wheel with five split in two towards the rim. was not just an aesthetic choice; structure provides excellent and torsional rigidity (thus the suspension stable). As with the RSV 1000 R project, performance beauty in this case

The weight saving is exceptional: 25% less for each wheel with the lightest wheels on the made using the traditional casting technique. Inertia too is 25 % lower than for cast alloy wheels.

The maniacal taken over the RSV 1000 R project has not overlooked even the insignificant details. The wheels are and not painted. This leads to a weight saving on this component and ensures they their characteristic colour for the life of the bike.

Furthermore the wheel data is not embossed, but into the wheel itself, removing more material and weight. Aprilia has also a 5.5 inch rear wheel (6 are standard). The smaller section rim channel gives additional on bends, better handling, and bike response, especially on the

Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory

All these attentions have the weight of the RSV 1000 R Factory to a Only 185 kg dry weight.

Exclusive fitted to the RSV 1000 R Factory:

Ohlins Racing suspension special settings, coated titanium nitride for increased

front brakes with callipers

one-piece forged brake calliper mounting for rigidity and braking stability

Ohlins Racing rear with special settings for single-seat use. Its length may be (as well as preload, compression and

front carbon mudguard

rear carbon mudguard

carbon fibre extractors

carbon fibre deflectors

carbon fibre fairing cover

carbon side fairing

forged front wheel

forged rear wheel

Like the R, the R is also available in three combinations: Lead Grey/Magnet Aprilia Black/Diablo Black and Red/Lead Grey; all three with a black frame
