Aprilia RSV4 voted Best Sports Bike

RSV4 Euro Award

Motorcyclists from 12 countries voted the Aprilia RSV4, the Superbike that set a new benchmark for engine and chassis performance both on the road and in the World Superbike (WSBK), the best sportbike of 2010.

The Aprilia RSV4’s two road versions "Factory" and "R" won hands-down in a survey among over 100,000 readers of the Italian monthly magazine In Moto and other 11 popular motorcycling magazines: Motorrad (Germany), Motociclismo (Spain), Moto Journal (France), Motoplus (Holland), Töff (Switzerland), Motorevija (Croatia), Motor Revü (Hungary), Motocykl (Czech Republic), Motocykl (Poland), Univers Moto (Romania) and the Brazilian magazine Motociclismo.

The Aprilia RSV4 won the coveted Sports Bike category award with nearly one third of the votes cast by readers, besting other top contenders by over 10%.

The extraordinary 1000cc SBK from Noale scooped yet another international award and its second consecutive Bike of the Year win. As a matter of fact, the Aprilia V4 had been awarded the Bike of Year title in 2009 as well.

Another winner was the Euro Aprilia RS 125 that dominated the 125cc category. Like its bigger brother, the RS 125 won a groundbreaking victory in its category, with 30% of votes cast.

The Aprilia RSV4 made its debut in the SBK World Championship in the 2009 season. Ridden by Max Biaggi, it conquered one win and other nine podiums and recorded the highest speed ever reached by a Superbike during a race in Monza at 329 kph (204 mph).
