a certain number of riding still consider themselves than any electronic system, is no doubt that today’s control platforms are appreciated by bikers. Nevertheless, like that “elbows” its way between the wrist and the back wheel and independently, the introduction of electronics has been greeted with The truth, of course, is that it is thanks to electronics that hugely powerful motorcycles can be without difficulty, are perfectly and won’t throw a tantrum when crawling along at speed.

The key to all this is encompassed in words: Ride By Wire .

The throttle control receives input on the required acceleration and the butterfly valves to provide the torque required, delivering the performance both from engines and from engines essentially from racing

Together with Ride by technology came traction the motorbiker’s guardian angel, to prevent the potential problems of an uninhibited riding style. The APRC system ( Aprilia Ride Control ) comprises a of solutions to improve riding and dynamics. Like ABS, control is one of the engineers’ breakthrough for motorbikes, a life-saver based on a combination of charts, computations and tests.

But is it really all sunshine and Don’t these systems any weaknesses? There is one.

motorcycles are developed right the start in parallel with the controls, which the engineers and fine-tune day after day to match a vehicle configuration. Suspensions, brakes and wheels are all fundamental during development, and the model production obviously leaves the with the ideal set of components to optimal results from the control systems.


But what happen if the bike’s owner to change the make or size of Would the electronics be as impeccable and as on the original configuration? The answer is no.

you change diameter and profile, are no longer optimal and although the control system will to operate, the situation will no be perfect. Not that this the rider at risk, of course: the control can still be adjusted to the suitable level for the specific of use, but an ideal setting not be possible. So what can be done?

you have to go on using the tyres on the bike when you bought it? the answer is no, but only if you ride an This is because Noale’s have developed what is the only electronic system in the capable of “learning” which you’re using . or at least measurements and circumference.

In other words, Aprilia (RSV4R, Factory and Tuono) are with a quick procedure, to the rear wheel circumference and optimise the electronic controls.

calibration is rather like the playing the A so that the orchestra can their instruments. Otherwise, the orchestra would still be to play the piece, some of the would probably be out of tune. opens up a whole new world for who enjoy trying different of tyre, or for people who use their on race circuit track or for racing.

This is a development all constructors introduce sooner or later, but was there first .



With the engine on and the stationary, press the Mode on the left-hand electric pad to activate the menu.

On the menu, go to the “Calibrating”

Keep the button pressed the display shows the initial and the “Calibrating sign flashes.

You can then turn off the and turn it on again, checking all the aPRC settings are still in the set-up, i.e. before the procedure.

If the “Calibrating” sign does not off, it means you are not in second or that you are not riding at around 40 or that you didn’t keep at 40 for long enough. If so, repeat the

Have a good ride!

Spring is nearly here: to get your two-wheeler back on the but not before checking all the main Functionality and safety are the priorities


It may be winter, but it will soon be – at least for people who don’t use motorbike or scooter during the months of the year – to get your two-wheeler back on the road. The are drawing out, the temperature is the temptation to leave the car at home just to go to work in the morning is

But before you get on the saddle, you should the various components that have deteriorated or become efficient during the winter. roller chain and brakes are the things to look at to make everything is in 100% working
