2012 Aprilia Superbike
Max Biaggi took the Aprilia RSV4 to the 2010 World Superbike Championship,and the street legal version of the bike does not disappoint.
The Aprilia Traction Control has eight settings, which the rider can change on the fly. Other aspects of the system include the self-explanatory Aprilia Wheelie Control, Aprilia Launch Control, and Aprilia Quick Shift.
Further, the rider can program the fuel injection system exactly to his needs. An underseat fuel tank helps centralize weight for featherlight handling.
In addition to the Factory version, an R version has Sachs suspension, fewer chassis adjustments, and costs $6000 less.
