2010 Aprilia RSV4

A revolutionary project and a unique of victories on the racetrack have together to create the RSV4. A with absolutely exclusive technology, developed around the 4 V cylinder engine developed the technical know-how that has led to victory on racetracks all over the

Aprilia RSV4 hits the and the roads with one goal to win.

33 championships, 254 MotoGP Championship wins and 8 Superbike over the last two decades has become a modern motorcycling The bikes from Noale dominated tracks the world thanks to the genial design, and extraordinary abilities of the technicians who innovative solutions by experimenting, and sometimes revolutionising technical that seemed to be unchangeable.

RSV4 FACTORY, the bike brings Aprilia back the 2009 Superbike World is the product of this immense know-how. It is a highly technologically motorcycle, conceived for racing and for purpose designed and developed by together with the marque’s Division, the largest and most of its kind in Europe and one of the most in the world.

Aprilia RSV4 is a racing machine that, in with the Aprilia tradition, a completely innovative approach in its and construction. Its narrow V engine, the use of electronics, plus its lightness and compactness are only a few of the features make it unique in the world. RSV4 FACTORY is designed and with the same philosophy by the Aprilia race division.

is why RSV4 FACTORY is the most Superbike racing replica, for those who want to venture the track with a class motorcycle.

The engine of the RSV4 is the most innovative and powerful has ever built. It is a super 999.6 cc 65° V-four cylinder designed for maximum power CV), where powerplant comes together with the materials and the most advanced control solutions. Aprilia’s in fact, uses a Ride by multimap technology, a solution opens up new frontiers for engine with practically infinite for further development.

Besides the map Ride by Wire system, a electronic injection system two injectors and adjustable height are fitted.

Aprilia RSV4 is an absolute supersport motorcycle, the complete bike available on the for bike fans, and its chassis this: designed for the racetrack, it has features that are typical of motorcycles. The adjustable geometry allows parameters such as the and inclination of the headstock, the height of the pin and even that of the engine to be The construction technology is also the RSV4 FACTORY chassis and are made of aluminium with section castings and pressings.

The are the state-of-the-art in motorcycling technology: Racing fork, rear and steering damper, Brembo callipers, forged aluminium

Aprilia RSV4 FACTORY is the new in the street legal superbike The unique characteristics of the bike are as follows:

• Compact, innovative

• New – and unique – 65° V-four cylinder

• Multi-adjustable perimetral aluminium frame

• Adjustable engine relative within frame

• aluminium swingarm

• Öhlins full adjustable fork and monoshock.

DESIGN: the quest for compactness

Creating the most innovative and gorgeous supersport on the market: a tough and intriguing for Aprilia’s style department! is how RSV4 Factory was created, a that sets new performance and standards while opening new in ultra-sports motorcycle design. a few simple and distinctive styling highlight rather than the specific technical features of the RSV4 Factory.

Its frame and engine stand out as elements of the motorbike’s design.

In with Aprilia traditions, the of RSV4 Factory does not merely on looks but it serves and performance. Every detail has conceived not just to be unique and but also and above all to be efficient.

The of the optimised dynamic intake feeding the V4 defined the strong-charactered with extra-large air intakes not only develop considerable in the airbox (approx. 35 mb @ 280 km/h), but completely separate the headlamps the bottom of the fairing. This in an absolutely unique style, seen before on a sports

The look of the RSV4 Factory is original, technological and definitely The triple headlamp cites the Aprilia maxi sportsbike, RSV that set new standards for sports in 1998.

Smaller, lower and than any 4 cylinder bike the RSV4 Factory’s extreme is its strength, together with an obsessive pursuit of perfect (crucial for perfect riding which has always distinguished road and World Championship motorcycles.

In depth aerodynamic minimised surfaces without the bike’s class-leading aerodynamics. The ultra-compact tail fairing is one of the distinctive features of this The LED taillight merges stunningly the tail, offering excellent

Even the rear of the RSV4 is absolutely unmistakable.

ENGINE: an 65° V4

The pursuit of maximum engine in a supersport motorcycle must be by a perfectly positioned engine in the Mass centralisation, swingarm and optimum weight distribution are for achieving the most competitive together with the pursuit of power and perfect power

Aprilia engineers have for years that a narrow V layout is the ideal technical for obtaining a class-beating chassis that emphasises the performance of the It is no coincidence that the RSV 1000 launched in 1998, is still acknowledged as the sports motorcycle the best chassis ever.

the multiple race-winning RSA 250 GP motorcycles (5 championship victories in the last seasons) produced by Aprilia’s division have a V engine. was able to draw from its expertise gained in years of supremacy in the Motorcycle World hence, when the time for the new Superbike came, after all possible solutions, a narrow V was chosen. A 65° V-4 cylinder engine, the solution that could unparalleled performance, enabling the chassis architecture that has all Aprilia racing motorcycles for the twenty years.

Besides the configuration that makes the 65° V4 around the world, the technical of the Aprilia four-cylinder engine can be as follows:

” Perfectly integrated the frame, with optimal centralisation and minimised inertia for agility.

” Absolute slimness, its width is comparable to that of a cylinder motorcycle, with benefits in terms of ergonomics and

” The compactness of the engine makes a oversquare cylinder layout using large bores and larger valves, helping the breathe more freely and higher engine speeds usable rpm).

The engine was developed by Aprilia’s Research and Division, aiming at offering performance and ridability in compliance the strictest reliability and quality

Aprilia’s V4 design exploited the powerful calculation programmes available on the market, resulting in a optimised engine layout. By opening the angle of the V (with to a 60° V engine), the designers could use of the larger space to optimise the ducts and maximise engine The RSV4 engine has class-leading dynamics attributes that no V engine can match.

The unique timing system extremely compact heads (measuring only 250 mm high at the especially in the area beneath the spars, which are thus narrower than would be possible. The lateral timing drives the intake camshaft and follows an optimised path for timing precision and chain

A gear pair at the centre of the bank transmits drive to the camshaft. This solution it possible to obtain an extremely head in the exhaust area. The V4 is more compact than the V60 twin mounted on the RSV 1000 R.

A dampens vibrations even than in a 90° V engine. The crankcase is a configuration with integrated liners for maximum rigidity and performance.

Electronics of the Future

RSV4 Factory engine full Ride by Wire There is no direct connection throttle grip and the throttle which are completely controlled by a generation Marelli control

Each bank has a dedicated unit actuating the two relevant bodies only. Hence the two and subsequently the quantity of fuel can be managed independently. While solution has been tried and by Aprilia, it has never been before on such a powerful thus opening up practically possibilities for power delivery

This technology immediately the rider who, thanks to the mapping that can be controlled from the handlebar, can change the delivery mode and thus the temperament at any time.

The fuel uses two injectors per cylinder: one is placed downstream of the throttle and a “shower” injector is placed in the and starts working at high and revs. The technological excellence of the V4 is complemented by electronically controlled length intake ducts. At low and loads, the long duct torque and smooth power

When top performance is required, the part of the intake duct thus shortening the duct and the engine free to express its power potential. A butterfly in the exhaust further optimises delivery.

The transmission was also according to the most advanced To underscore the racing soul of the V4 a cassette gearbox is used, a multiplate wet clutch disc with a mechanical slipper to optimise engine braking and ensure stability under braking.

Lastly, in order to weight, Aprilia’s new engine large use of ultralight materials; all covers and external housings are from magnesium.

CHASSIS: Aprilia’s entire know-how

A unique engine Aprilia V4 could be nothing but with an extraordinary chassis stresses the uniqueness of this Years of races and victories at the top melts into a racing implemented by Aprilia’s research and department, with construction and adjustments that only prototypes can boast.

RSV4 reaps the rewards of Aprilia’s racing experience.

Perfect centralisation was a must when the Factory frame was being Everything was designed in order to the best possible result, from the tank position for riding) with most of the under the saddle in order to motorcycle balance and eliminate any differences between full and tank.

There is no doubt: RSV4 Factory is a true motorcycle, and a front/rear weight of 52/48 confirms this.

In line with Aprilia division traditions, the RSV4 uses castings and aluminium that are welded to create a far rigid frame than of the RSV 1000 twin, which was a benchmark. In particular, torsional and rigidities were optimised in to offer perfect feeling and as well as the ability to handle power outputs such as of the Superbike version.

Notwithstanding the performance, the RSV4 Factory weighs almost the same as the at only 10.1 kg, a lightness only by racing frames. The construction technology also both the frame and the swingarm to the natural and shining colour of the which makes the appearance of the Factory very similar to of a racing prototype.

Designed the knowledge acquired during GP the spectacular swingarm of the RSV4 like its frame, is made by castings (the internal and the swingarm pin/wheel connection with aluminium bent elements (the external to form a very rigid but light box section capable of the moving masses, exalting the and sensibility of the motorcycle to the suspension The asymmetric conformation, with an section on the right side and a arch on the left, made it to implement an exhaust system optimised internal volumes penalising the rigidity of the swingarm.

too, FEM modelling was used in the process to optimise cross and thicknesses. The swingarm of the RSV4 weighs only 5,100 close to the absolute standard for this technical element.

The to offer the first four V “race ready” superbike in the led Aprilia to find unique that will hardly be on competitors’ bikes even in the to come.

In order to boost performance and make it match the style and wishes, or features of the Aprilia RSV4 Factory a combination of adjustments that are much infinite. The multi-adjustable taken for granted on a motorcycle of level, are combined with of the headstock position and rake interchangeable bushings), the rear end the swingarm pin height and – introducing a new exclusive to this bike – the position in the frame.

Aprilia Factory is the most highly production motorcycle in the world, like a real race


The Öhlins Racing fork has 43-mm stanchions and is nitride coated to minimise The wheel travel is 120 mm. Like in motorcycles, the fork allows adjustment for hydraulic compression and damping and spring preload.

The Racing rear shock is equipped with a “Piggy nitrogen canister and can be adjusted for preload, compression and rebound and length, thus allowing the of the rear end of the bike to be changed to the set-up to the different riding and tracks. The wheel travel is 130 mm.

The motorcycle is also equipped an Öhlins Racing adjustable damper.


The front is without a shadow of a doubt the system available on the market. monobloc radial callipers are the in racing braking systems to their power, high and fatigue resistance.

The dual diameter stainless steel discs are completely new and were by Aprilia specifically for this A rotor with reduced and asymmetric perforation were allowing the braking power to be and the front wheel to be lightened by 500 grams. The floating retainer is to the flange with 6 pins in order to minimise inertia and

The brake pump is the radial to improve lever feel and accuracy. The rear braking is Brembo “Serie Oro” 220-mm diameter stainless disc and two-piston caliper, racing-type pump and integrated


The search for greater led to implementation of new forged aluminium The original design further the weight (approximately 1 kg less the RSV 1000 twin) which, with the new brake discs, unsprung mass and rotating inertia, benefiting motorcycle


A real Superbike is not only as far as performance is concerned but for the care it is built with. regard to the RSV4 Factory, the say it all: no other “race motorcycle has ever been with such care. The paid to its construction not only the desire for beauty (a motorbike like RSV4 Factory is in any gorgeous), but most of all aims at the goal: to win.

This is why detail was thought out to increase and functionality, reducing the weight and increasing the product’s quality and

The following components are worth out:

— Instrument the mixed type (digital-analogue), it all the information from the CAN line and an integral and crucial part of the system as it is fitted with It is a real onboard computer, with a dot matrix display in a minimal, extremely modern and design that provides all the relating to the use of the motorcycle, including: light, engaged gear indication of the engine map being and chronometer with time memory. Its functionality was improved to a level that is even than that of the best available on the market, all use modes are from the left hand unit so the hands can always on the handlebar.

— the front uses three elements call to mind of the first RSV twin, proving to be perfectly even from the structural of view, with the top fairing and a very distinctive front. The mirror was designed with calculation systems that led to an result: maximum visibility at with reduced weight and
