Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC | Official Video

Aprilia RSV4 SE

In this official video released on the Aprilia YouTube channel, the Italian manufacturer highlights its 2011 RSV4 Factory APRC Special Edition, a superbike born from technology that helped the Aprilia dominate World Superbike this year, and also garner 45 championships in MotoGP.

The RSV4 Factory APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) Special Edition builds upon the already popular RSV4 Factory, allowing Aprilia to set a new standard for future road bike development.

The new features of the RSV4 Factory APRC SE are unique adjustable traction control capable of self-adjusting to suit different types of tires, wheelie control, launch control and quick shift.

This is added to all the features that made the RSV4 Facotry famous: the first 65° V-4 engine ever in a sports production bike, a chassis worthy of a 250 GP, Ride By Wire, and multimap engine management.

Aprilia’s vast technology capacity made it possible to create the electronic engine management system of the RSV4 Factory Superbike that helped Max Biaggi grab the 2010 World Superbike Championship.

Thanks to new insights earned in racing and the close collaboration between racing team, Racing Department and R&D, know how is nearly immediately passed on to production. This is how the Aprilia people were able to turn out the fastest, most effective bike on the track, a bike whose only goal is to post the fastest lap.
