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