2008 APRILIA RXV 4.5 — 5.5

— RXV550

The design of the new RXV 4.5/5.5 model year owes much to the concept of evolution in the name of competition. gained in the Enduro World which saw Aprilia Racing at the top of the plus valuable hints and from four times champion Stefan Merriman, the top rider, have enabled engineers and designer to transfer from racing to production. team work has led to a number of improvements over the 2007 making the 2008 RXV even “race ready”, and better to satisfy the demands of professionals and alike.

Aesthetically, the 2008 RXV meaner than ever to new graphics, a two-tone black and red brand new, lightweight headlight, and a distinctly aggressive Even the tail light is In conjunction with general these important new details also led to a significant reduction in dry down by 4 kg to only 113 kg.

A great of work has also been to ensure the sort of ergonomics for effective competition use. The new tank blends in better the overall design of the bike, the rider to shift his weight more easily. The new handlebars eliminated the cross-bar and feature practical and race-oriented controls.

The RXV makes it even easier for man and to blend into one, any annoying interference from parts. The suspension (featuring a 45 mm down fork at the front and a at the rear) also incorporates new suggested by the team official for improved stability on fast and better damping over ground.

A perimeter frame envelops the powerful, yet reliable four 77 V twin engine (with cooling, single overhead cam rocker operated exhaust chain cam drive, 4 titanium and electronic fuel injection). now homologated to Euro 3 standard, performance is guaranteed from engine sizes, 449 cc (RXV and 549 cc ( RXV 5.5).

The main improvements to the on the 2008 bike concern the management system.

Completing the list of innovations are new, ultra-compact, ultra-light instruments designed to give you all the you need, and restyled direction


Like all Aprilia the SXV and RXV have been designed an almost obsessive attention to but with no unnecessary frills. The plastic bodywork of these machines keeps functionality up and down, shaping beautifully lines. Their clear-cut, styling conveys a reassuring of lightness and build quality.

The team has worked hard to a distinctive Aprilia feel, and has a whole new look in enduro and motorcycles. Your gaze is attracted to their superb in the form of the V twin engine, trellis and aluminium frame, and swingarm. The design of the tail and side panels abandons enduro styling and is totally just like the centrally exhaust system with tail pipes under the mudguard.

In fact, innovative solutions catch your eye way you look at the RSV and SXV, and Aprilia colours confirm that bikes are born to compete.

As with Aprilia, goods are just the outward shell of design solutions. The fixed air for example, allow the fuel to pivot upwards, giving access to the filter box.


The amazing V2 engine is the natural of the SXV and RXV. Aprilia was the first in the world to believe in the potential of V engines in a market segment nobody has ever had the courage to Impressive results in top level have shown that was right. This exceptional (made entirely by Aprilia) has now transferred to Aprilia production

Totally reliable on the racetrack, the V2 has not been deprived of any of its technology or by homologation for road use. development also proceeded in hand with chassis from the word go, to ensure these bikes handle and as totally integrated machines.

The 77 V between the cylinders is the result of tests aimed at maximising and minimising vibrations. The new engine far less than any single even requiring a balancer

The cylinders are integrated in the crankcase and are by replaceable wet sleeves. The intelligent of the V2 has also permitted engine to be arranged in an extremely rational keeping the powerplant as compact as The results are amazing: Aprilia’s V is one of the most compact in the world, than many singles of displacement.

Design solutions specially selected for maximum and a wide power band. The electronic engine management, by Aprilia Racing, introduces a of innovations for this type of The fuel injection system 38 mm throttle bodies (40 mm on the 550) and is by a programmable ECU. Another first is the fact that the SXV features an extended drive to allow the sprocket to be placed out.

Reduced displacement per cylinder has use of an extremely compact and lightweight crankshaft. The gyroscopic effect of the is therefore dramatically reduced. The responds instantly to throttle making the whole bike and more agile. The inertia acceleration and deceleration typical of bore engines has also reduced, permitting engine never before seen on type of motorcycle.

Aprilia technology, of means more than performance. Reliability and durability are as important. The V2 engine sets new in this direction, and also beautifully easy access to all requiring regular service plugs, oil filter and air filter.

The SXV and RXV boast far longer than service intervals.

The same of effort has gone into reduction. The engine sets a new for a V twin, even with its motor fitted! This has achieved by an abundant use of super-lightweight materials.

The central crankcase for example, are made from silicon alloy. All covers are in the valves are in titanium; and the entire train has been made than ever before.

The is specially tuned to suit the of motorcycle. The gear ratios are precisely calculated for supermotard use in the of the SXV or enduro use on the RXV. Even the and ignition mapping have modified to give the two engines the character and performance for the bike; revving on the supermotard, smoother and at low to medium revs on the enduro.

An uncompromising like the SXV or RXV demands a unique and chassis. The perimeter frame was in conjunction with the engine and a tubular steel trellis interference fitted to pressed side plates to form an rigid assembly. The engine forms an integral part of the acting as a load-bearing element and to exceptional overall rigidity.
