Aprilia RSV4 Factory Wallpaper PhotoFor 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.Attached above is wallpaper of the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 Factory ABS in the only color available – black and red with gold wheels.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
