For 2013, the Noale-based Aprilia has revised its RSV4 superbike lineup, offering the RSV4 R and the more track-oriented RSV4 Factory pictured above.

Much of the revisions arrive from the World Superbike Aprilia Racing Team, which took the 2012 title with Max Biaggi at the controls.

Both the RSV4 R and RSV4 Factory receive a host of upgrades for 2013, including ABS, a revamped chassis, a four-horsepower increase in horsepower from the 999cc 65-degree V4, a bigger fuel tank and further refinements on its Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC), which features Traction Control, Wheelie Control and Launch Control.

The main difference between the Factory and the R version is the suspension. The Factory gets top of the line Ohlins 43mm forks, while the R gets a Sachs setup. Out back, the Factory model also gets Ohlins, and the R Sachs.
