Aprilia RSV4 R – latest sweetest) bike from factory

The term Race is attached to nearly every manufacturer’s latest liter-class It’s a logical comparison, the similarities between the motorcycle you see in the and their World Superbike brethren. But quite often in the from racetrack to street, have to be made – sometimes large ones.

Italian manufacturer Aprilia intends to all that with the introduction of the Aprilia RSV4R.

The RSV4R is the Superbike in next year’s Priced at $15,999, it’s a for the everyday man, a machine allows riders to experience the that is its purpose-built 999cc V-Four racing engine and GP-inspired rigid aluminum all wrapped in stunning, aerodynamically bodywork. Motorcycle USA was one of only two magazines invited to test hotrod at Valentino Rossi’s and beloved Mugello racing near Florence, Italy, to see if the succeeded…

Aesthetically, there is no this bike from from Japan, or anywhere in the world for that matter. always, Aprilia designers to push the boundaries of motorcycle by creating a futuristic, cutting-edge that is equally adept at the tiniest hole possible air at speed. Its design truly is a between form and function.

The is an absolutely stunning motorcycle. more amazing is its $15,999 tag.

If you look close, the fascia is queued to its early It uses two primary head as well as an additional center beam. Above sits the with integrated turn

At the rear of the bike is a triangular-shaped that looks like you you’d see on a new Audi R-series car.

Although it’s to notice in pictures, in person the bodywork is very angular. In the only flat, featureless of the bike is the upper portion of side panels. Below more elegance comes in the of symmetrical triangular cut-outs to purge engine heat.

on the bike, and especially on the tail numerous fins give the an unmistakable shark-on-land vibe.

The R the same bodywork as used on the except for the carbon fiber and rear swingarm fender, is made out of less expensive Attention to detail and outright quality is superb and it’s that Aprilia could such a well-built and high-tech for a price less than a 1198. Bravo Aprilia!

initial design, engineers many possible engine including a V-Twin, Inline-Triple and a 90-degree and 65-degree V-Four. being the most expensive to they settled upon the as it provides the best compromise the high rpm performance of a four-cylinder and size of a V-Twin, thereby to ideal racetrack dynamics.

The crown jewel of the RSV4R is its V-Four engine. It was designed and in-house without assistance of (engine supplier for the RSV1000R). The itself is almost identical to the one in the $5000-more-expensive Factory model, that it utilizes fixed velocity stacks and aluminum covers (as opposed to variable-length and magnesium side and head

But the best part: Maximum is claimed to be the same.

V-Four, engines don’t come any compact than the RSV4R’s. A 6-speed transmission allows for removal and gear ratio however, Aprilia did not mention if gears will be available for The crankcase is forged from one piece of aluminum and each utilizes a 78 x 52.3mm internal dimension, squeezing fuel to a ratio of 13.1:1.

The cylinders are at narrow 65-degree angle allows the engine to remain short front-to-back. The engine’s is comprised of double eight-valve heads with the intake driven by a chain and the exhaust cam via A wet-sump lubrication system an external oil-to-air radiator and oil pumps ensures proper lubrication.

Additionally, one counterbalancer eliminates engine vibration.

The system uses an airbox fed twin ram-air intakes beneath the two primary headlights. Air is funneled into four throttle bodies, each by twin fuel-injectors. The primary feed the engine through rpm, with the secondary activating near maximum

Spent gases then through a 4-2-1 stainless-steel arrangement that terminates in an trapezoid muffler traditionally on the right-hand side of the bike. The incorporates an electronically controlled and a catalytic convertor for both and Euro 3 emission requirements.

A cassette-style 6-speed transmission power to the rear wheel via a final drive. The drivetrain is manipulated by a cable-actuated, wet multi-plate with true ramp-style slipper functionality.

Remember the ride-by-wire system employed on the Aprilia Cube RS3 MotoGP – The bike that would highside its riders at high without warning? The system has now completely sorted and is employed on the It removes the physical cable between the throttle and engine, relying on the Magneti Marelli ECU to manage engine fueling.

Say hello to faith in electronics and to the 21st century.

The RSV4R a sophisticated ride-by-wire engine system. It offers three selectable engine modes Sport, and Road) that can be via a handlebar mounted switch.

The is further augmented by two independent units controlling each of throttle bodies for more fuel metering. A handlebar allows the rider to choose one of three fuel maps. mode provides full in all six gears. Sport mode engine torque in the first gears but allows for maximum in the remaining gears. The Road limits engine power to a amount in all gears.

Surprisingly, is no traction control available as an up-charge accessory.

Instrumentation is of Aprilia’s signature orange-backlit digital/analog instrument panel. A swept tachometer is bordered by a LCD screen that provides ambient air temperature, gear engine mode setting, shift light, and engine lights.

Aprilia continues the of employing light yet rigid with the RSV4R. The frame and weigh just over 33

The shape of the engine allowed to utilize a ridiculously slim Comprised from a mixture of cast and pressed pieces of the twin-spar frame weighs over 22-lbs while a level of rigidity that come to expect and appreciate Aprilia sportbikes. The engine is extremely low in the frame which to mask its weight while

The 4.49-gallon fuel tank has designed to carry the majority of beneath the seat, thereby mass and retaining chassis regardless of fuel load.

A thick swingarm, also from both cast and aluminum, extends the bike’s to 55.9 inches. In typical fashion, both the frame and feature a brilliantly polished that literally gleams that of a factory race Unlike the Factory model, the R’s does not allow any sort of in terms of steering head engine position, or swingarm angle.

It does however the ability to modify ride by raising or lowering the shock Front-to-rear weight distribution is a 52/48.

Accounting for the price the Ohlins suspension pieces on the are swapped out for less expensive on the R. Up front a 43mm inverted fork is utilized while the suspension is comprised of a Sachs shock absorber operating a linkage. The non-adjustable steering is also made by Sachs and is above the lower triple Both suspension components independent tri-way adjustability in the of spring preload, compression, and damping adjustment.

The RSV4R’s front end consist of an Showa 43mm fork a 17-inch cast aluminum wheel with twin rotors actuated by Brembo monobloc calipers. Other include the composition of the wheels; the R cast aluminum instead of the forged aluminum rims on the A switch from Pirelli to rubber has also been as the R gets the Racetec K3 (comparable to fantastic Diablo Super SP tire).

The braking system is between models and highlighted by a of 320mm diameter discs by 4-piston Brembo monobloc and a radial-mount master cylinder. The brake consists of a single disc with a Brembo caliper. Metal-lined brake augment each end.

Laps in Heaven at Mugello

into the foothills of the Apennine Mugello offers everything a junkie could ever of. From braking, acceleration, and top-speed; to flickabilty, max-lean and high-speed bends – the sum of its 15-turns put a premium on every performance of a machine. The perfect test

Thus, it isn’t a surprise it’s used extensively by its and legendary sports car manufacturer, And it was here where we got 16 laps this much-hyped street racebike.

It’s a doubt the smallest production sportbike on the market and sincerely like a middleweight class 600 – even smaller than of the bigger 600s.

(Above) The V-Four engine sounds when you near its claimed peak at 12,500 revs. The ergonomics on the RSV4R were even for Waheed’s six-foot Taller riders might cramped however. (Bottom) The system is perfectly calibrated and up a ridiculous level of rear feel.

From the minute you the engine it screams pure exhilaration—think Ducati Desmosedici. out from pitlane and onto the reveals both how stout the bottom end power is as well as how tall first gear clue that this is and foremost a racing motorcycle. the throttle dialed to the stop and its gains speed voraciously in a fashion to a 600cc Inline-Four to a big V-Twin.

In the lower gears the front end light yet the wheel always close to the ground, proving the of its forward-biased weight distribution and 55.9-inch wheelbase. Power seamlessly into a punchy that just keeps more and more power.

As increase, so does the furious from the engine and exhaust, crescendoing to a guttural scream as you the upper reaches of the tach. the power plateaus, before off just shy of redline. As you hit the rev-limiter the stalls slightly but not nearly as bad as a V-Twin or Inline-Triple. Grab an and its closely placed transmission ratios return you to the fat part of the midrange just where it to be.

At any rpm the engine runs smoothly virtually no vibration being through the handlebars, proof the internal counterbalance is perfectly Overall the engine’s outright feels somewhat comparable to the new R1.

Tipping into the corner that the RSV4 responds with the front brakes on, thereby lowering the front end and it a slightly more aggressive geometry. When done it carves into the corner with substantially reduced effort. The bike transitions to max predictably and stays planted the turn. As you feed on the throttle, the responds instantly without overly sensitive or jerky.

it becomes immediately apparent how direct the connection is between and rear tire. This the pilot the confidence needed to earlier during corner thereby achieving the thrill of acceleration sooner aboard the

Overall, the suspension offers damping characteristics, giving balance front-to-rear. Whether loading the front end by mashing on the brakes or trying to get the rear end to during acceleration, the bike always maintains balance, the urge to see-saw and instead solidly level.

Surprisingly, traction available from 3.2-mile surface wasn’t impressive, though at the same it showed just how adept the is at putting power to the ground. the rear end was constantly squirming in of traction, it manages to attain drive off the corner while laser-guided accuracy, tracking where the rider points its

Feel from the OE-fitted Racetec tires complement the and offered plenty of feedback at an pace around the track. In unless we were full-on racing, we’d have no using this tire any racetrack outing.

Priced at $15,999, the 2010 RSV4R is an incredible value. You can it at your local Aprilia this November. Although the gets in-and-out of the corner when you need to flick it side-to-side quickly it resists direction, instead preferring to on its original trajectory.

Despite different reactions from the journalists invited, I found one’s weight off the bike and the front brakes helped but it still wasn’t on par with the middleweight 600s. That outright maneuverability is on par with its big competition.

One of the most appreciated of the RSV4’s chassis is how predicable it is. just cruising and trying to which direction the track during our initial laps, to the session when we had put the track and were really going for it, the never did anything unexpected and was easy to discover its attributes: extreme precision, feel and

It’s like tailored the RSV4 exactly for me. also worth noting how the fuel tank cut-out your helmet upward for a clear, unobstructed view in without having to strain muscles.

Lean, lean, and lean. The 2010 Aprilia can take all the rider can dish This might possibly be the Sportbike of 2010.’

During the RSV4R doesn’t offer engine braking, instead on its oversized Brembo set-up. The speed displayed before for Turn 1 was 287 kph (178 mph). the brakes provide all the stopping one could need unless initials are VR.

Power is off the charts and only one strong finger on the radial-style master cylinder to dissipate speed. The shape of the tank aids the rider in balance during aggressive by allowing a proper surface to the tank with one’s

As mentioned before, the chassis an extraordinary level of stability and completely negates the weight effect. Brake feel as prevalent as we’ve experienced on bikes with Brembo ala Ducati’s 1098/1198 superbike, but acceptable and most likely be changed with a simple pad swap. The lack of brake did, however, make us more cautious during brake maneuvers into the

Riding the RSV4R can best be as a raw experience. It delivers a visceral that few other liter-class bikes can offer. It’s to tell if it is faster or performs than its Japanese and Italian but one thing for sure is that riding, it makes you feel you’re piloting Max Biaggi’s No.

The RSV4R delivers a visceral riding experience the racetrack, making you feel you’re piloting the same No. 3 Superbike as Max Biaggi. It’s light and without a doubt the compact liter-class projectile on the yet the ergos are spot-on perfect for use even for a larger-than-average rider.

The constantly barrages the rider status updates from tire and the howl, especially at rpm from the V-Four engine, is an addictive drug. Plus, the runs smoothly everywhere zero vibration throughout its rev range. Outright power is and if it could just hold its top-end power for longer say it could be about perfect. all considered, Aprilia may have produced the best Sportbike of

Not only does it look it sounds even better, is together precisely, plus it hauls the mail. Leave it to to produce a true Race for the masses.[via MotorcycleNews —
