Aprilia Announces 2004 RSV R and 1000 R Factory

The highly successors to the Aprilia Mille have been revealed to the by Aprilia. They take the of the standard RSV 1000 R and the RSV 1000 R

These new machines are smaller, and slimmer than the prior with more power a redesigned engine with ram air and new electronically-controlled fuel-injection system. The new also features a double new frame and swingarm, and new rear linkage. The styling, of course, is entirely new, with turn signals, front and and a distinctive, four headlight

Take a look at the official releases from Aprilia

Improve the best. The new RSV 1000 R to do precisely this: to become the epitome of sportiness, performance and The world’s most appreciated bike has become even beautiful, more high and more effective.

The utmost sportbike.


few road bikes can boast as official awards from magazines as the Aprilia RSV 1000. its first five years of it has come to be regarded as the absolute for performance, rideability and track A supersport bike with which, thanks to its first-rate and the best content/price ratio on the has won the hearts of 27,000 riders

The best that could be at least up to now, because has decided to move the performance, and pleasure-to-ride limits up even with the new RSV 1000 R 2004. In Aprilia has decided to improve the

The RSV 1000 R inherits the full of the previous model, but shifts all the and performance characteristics up and adds an R to its to symbolize this increase.

The production twin-cylinder bike on the today is even faster. The aim of the Aprilia RSV 1000 R project was in to increase on-track performance.

A new frame and swing arm. The layout is new: it is lower mm) shorter (-35 mm) and more And the revolutionary design is new, improved aerodynamic penetration.

The RSV R sets a new benchmark for road due to its technology and its extraordinary performance.

But counts most is the further of the concept of “total rideability” has always characterized this and which has been the primary for its success.

The maniacal attention to and its easy rideability make the feel immediately at ease the bike so that he can quickly and effortlessly reach clock-times would otherwise be unapproachable.

A demanding ride means and foremost a less physically and tiring, faster and safer during which the rider can his concentration higher for longer. are determining factors for race but are also important on the road.

The RSV 1000 R is Aprilia’s new benchmark for supersport bikes.

Here are the distinctive characteristics item by

has been paid to every detail of this exclusive bike with its aggressive look. The RSV 1000 R is the perfect between quality, technology, and finish.

Everything has been tested and suitably adjusted to improve the performance of a bike incomparable rideability.

The new engine has performance limits even 138.72 hp (102 kW) at the crank a maximum speed of over 170 mph km/h). These are the “figures” make the RSV 1000 R a real among production twin-cylinder bikes.

Its completely redesigned improves the bike’s dynamic in every situation, making it even more successful on the

All this, of course, goes in hand with top-quality selected to make the RSV 1000 R a supersport bike among


When performance beauty. The design of the RSV 1000 R is revolutionary. It is lower and more with an unmistakable aggressive

Not design for design’s sake, but at the disposal of technology and performance. detail has been designed not to be pretty, but above all to be effective.

the best possible air system for the V60 engine has meant fundamental to the front. The air scoop has been in the middle of the windscreen, the point the dynamic pressure is greatest. A factor for the bike’s performance also becomes a fundamental of the design.

The front headlamp is split with four which work together in thus getting rid of that “Cyclops effect” typical of modern sportbikes.

The RSV 1000 R is lower and slimmer, and this compactness is its strong point. All without forgetting ergonomics has always distinguished the RSV range.

The tail quickly converts a one-seater to a two-seater. It is extremely and one of the most characteristic features of the The compact rear LED light excellent brightness despite its moderate dimensions.

Even from behind, the RSV 1000 R is recognizable.

The quest for the cleanest line and maximum aerodynamic has led to elimination of the traditional indicator The front ones are now incorporated in the mirrors, and the rear ones are into the tail.

So no protrusions for a perfectly clean able to cut through the air like no Thanks to these stratagems and studies in a wind tunnel, the RSV R further improves the already CX of the RSV Mille 2003, which from 0.306 to 0.3.


The 1000 “V 60 Magnesium” a turning point in the history of twin-cylinder engines. It is based on the and appreciated V990, but has been so revised that it has changed The far-reaching changes make it the benchmark for production twin-cylinder

It performs exceptionally, responds in situation and has the proverbial Aprilia

The cylinder heads with covers have been redesigned. On-track experience has turned to good use to improve fluid dynamic efficiency and combustion. In particular, the squish between the exhaust and intake have been made

Thanks to this new design, performance is obtained with a spark plug, which at the time increases combustion precisely due to the greater turbulence.

the new layout, it has even been to distribute the cooling liquid evenly around the combustion which leads to more efficiency and reliability. Optimization of the system mapping has also led to combustion even at low loads and low

As well as new cylinder heads, are also new camshafts and new valve The lubrication circuit has also completely redesigned in this area, not only to improve itself, but also to minimize drag and consequent power

The intake ducts have redesigned to match the throttle perfectly. The exhaust duct has been redesigned: it now has an oval to facilitate the passage of exhaust towards the silencer.

To improve the air to the “V60 Magnesium” the intake has been completely redesigned. An air known as the “Air Runner”, has placed in the middle of the windscreen, where the dynamic pressure is and perfectly in line with the

A duct passes through the to bring the pressurized air to the filter which holds a good litres.

A choke inside the controlled by the electronic control regulates air flow, thus the engine with the right of air at the right pressure at all revs. In way, the engine performs and provides a spurt unknown to the V2 up to now. In fact the rev limiter has upped to 11,000 rpm.

The voice of the V60 Magnesium is muffled by two resonators with different which lower the intake at the most critical revs.

The also houses a new air by-pass motor which acts on an controlled valve and sends air of the butterfly valve thus it easier to cold-start the bike and the engine idling speed.

The Air Runner also acts as a component. Thanks to two light arms it holds the windscreen and the headlight, therefore doing with unattractive supports.

The new filter ensures less air therefore improving engine It also costs less as a part than the previous RSV leading to lower running

The air intake section has been revised: the engine can now count on an system with 57 mm throttle and a single injector per cylinder.

to the Air Runner the pressure in the airbox as the bike runs faster to a 3% gain in power at maximum

A new electronic control unit, together with Siemens manages the whole engine. It all the vital parameters from 15 in real time (temperature: air and pressure: atmospheric, airbox and Lambda sensor; rotation driveshaft, camshaft, throttle and wheel; position sensors: clutch and idle; battery and redistributes them instantly to the

A 36-minus-2-tooth wheel is coupled to the which is therefore able to the engine with greater (every 10°, rather every 60°).

All the data through a CAN line (Controlled Network) to the instrument panel, acts as an autodiagnosis terminal. In the of a malfunction, the mechanic will be to identify the problem immediately. The CAN uses two wires only to all this data, which simplifies the electrical system and the overall weight of the bike

The already excellent performance of the is outclassed by the V60 Magnesium which out a maximum power of 138.72 hp kW) at 9,500 rpm with maximum of 107 Nm at 7,500 rpm. All this the fact the new engine is extremely since it is fitted with a catalytic converter with sensor and complies with the EC standards.

Technological research not only mean better it also means keeping performance up over time. The of the RSV 1000 R has grown along its performance. New high resistance designed rods have increased the robustness of the engine.

But the V60 is not only more powerful and it is also lighter than the old thanks to the use of special materials, as magnesium for the cylinder-head covers and cover.

Aprilia was the first to use a ratio gearbox on a production The RSV 1000 R is also fitted this device which, than ever before, the rider to get the full exceptional from the V60 Magnesium.

The result is even more acceleration and exhilarating gear off the bends, which may be experienced on the road and on the track. The engine absolutely brilliantly even at the gears thus increasing the of the bike and riding fun.

technical evolution has not eliminated special characteristics which made the RSV series stand out from the first model.

60° V-twin engine with 4 per cylinder and double overhead controlled by a mixed chain and system.

Electronic fuel with 57 mm throttle bodies and Runner” air scoop. One injector per

CDI ignition with 1 plug per Ignition is controlled by an integrated management system which controls injection.

Dry sump with double trochoidal separate oil tank and cooling

Mixed gear/chain drive: the two (one for each drive inserted in the base reduce the occupied by the cylinder heads.

The twin-cylinder engine comes with exclusive patent devices:

AVDC (Anti Double Countershaft).

Hydraulically clutch with radial assisted by a patented PPC (Pneumatic Clutch) system for separate wheel bounce control.

The new exhaust system was designed on the of experience acquired in the Superbike

It follows the 2 in 1 in 2 layout and is completely of stainless steel, with mm thick manifolds and oval head mounting flanges of precision cast stainless

The silencers are lined with mm thick stainless steel, surface electroplating, and assembled clamps and rivets according to the racing construction technique. are positioned in order to minimize resistance and improve weight


Years of high racing have helped R-D design an even better than the previous model, was already acknowledged as one of the best bike frames.

The primary aim designing the new RSV 1000 R frame was mass centralization. In accordance the Aprilia tradition, the structure cast aluminium-silicon and … Peraluman 450 parts. The frame was through long finite-element and its torsional rigidity is 5% better the previous model.

Despite the new frame is a good 600 grams bringing its total weight to only 9650 grams: a only matched by racing

The headstock is positioned differently in to lower the whole bike and its centre of gravity. The swing arm has been moved 0.5 mm forward, both the swing arm mounting and the frame have been to make the bike more and concentrate its mass around the of gravity as much as possible.

The has been moved 4 mm to the right, with the new exhaust system for perfect bike balancing.

Times change, riding change and bikes must too. For this reason, the and swing arm assembly has been specifically not only to ensure performance, but also to allow to manage skids perfectly entering and leaving bends).

component has been made compact and optimized to adapt it to the new layout. The rear suspension has been redesigned, the saddle is fixed vertically to the bike in order to decrease its thickness in the area by 3 cm. The suspension supporting are cast and not extruded, so that are better shaped around the suspension and contribute further perfect mass centralization.

The new RSV R swing arm has been designed the know how acquired in motorbike It is also made with Peraluman and cast Al Si 7. Its double shape leaves space for the new exhaust system to pass

Again in this case, and thicknesses have been using finite-element analysis. The RSV R swing arm weight has been by a good 400 grams, to 4860 well under the 5 kg threshold as reference for this particular


The Showa 43 mm upside-down is a perfect compromise between and road comfort. It has been from the racing units and has adjustable preload and hydraulically rebound (2.5 turns) and (2.25 turns).

The Sachs shock-absorber is fitted with a piggy back nitrogen built into the body. It has rebound, compression, preload and in order to lift and lower the axle according to the required rider’s preferences and other made.

Among the optional is a continuous tyre pressure system, to keep the alignment control according to the suspension


The Brembo Bridge Gold Series system is without a doubt the conventional system for motorbikes on the today.

The RSV-R is fitted two four-piston (34 mm diameter) callipers four separate sintered (one per piston). The four double the pad-disc adhesion, increasing the braking force for the same amount of effort on the Their more compact also leads to more pad wear.

The Brembo “Tripe calliper structure (with strengthening bridge) is the most conventional system.

The double 320 mm floating steel disc has a short braking distance, in to minimize inertia and weight, and an exclusive Aprilia design flange.

The brake pump is to improve response precision and the of the lever.

The rear braking is a Brembo Gold Series 220 mm diameter stainless steel and two-piston (32 mm diameter) calliper.

the front and rear systems use metal lines taken the aeronautics industry, which the irritating pressure smoothing of conventional lines and ensure braking precision.


What particularly and distinguishes the Aprilia RSV 1000 R is the and attention paid to every component and part. This leads to better performance and characteristics, through a decrease in and considerable increase in product and finish.

Great care was taken to rationalize the construction of the RSV R. Less pieces, less less weight. The RSV 1000 R consists of only 14 pieces to the 25 pieces on the previous version. The have also been in a wind tunnel to optimize air over the bike, and improve CX and

As regards components, the following are mentioning:

Dashboard: mixed (digital-analogue). It receives all its data a CAN line and is an integral part of the system due to its memory. It has all the indicators of the model (including self with a 40 lap memory), an extremely compact design and a drastically weight (down from 560 to 220 g). Its functional characteristics have improved: all the functions are controlled by convenient keys.

The LED lighting may be set to levels: white in the analogue and red in the digital area.

The headlight has lights for perfect night-riding The bike’s highly refined is also evident from the taken over apparently parts, such as the lamp made of blue anodized

The indicator lights are perfectly into the bike. The front are incorporated in the rear-view mirrors and the ones are built into the Consequently, they do not need for track use.

The rear plate holder may be quickly for the same reason.

The specially RSV 1000 R key has internal coding, and the block has an immobilizer fitted as


The three colour highlight the RSV 1000 R’s modern and are able to satisfy all tastes. The RSV R is available in Lead Grey/Magnet Aprilia Black/Diablo Black and Red/Lead Grey

All colour come with polished and swing arm.
