Part of the Aprilia Factory Works project, the 2016 Aprilia RSV4 RF (it’s undetermined whether or not it will be a 2017 model in the United States) is aimed at, according to an Aprilia spokesman, “professional riders, collectors or racetrack-Sunday devotees.” It’s a built-to-order machine with staggering capabilities.

Designed to be a ready-to-race machine in the World Superstock and World Superbike championships, Aprilia claims that the new RSV4 RF will produce over 230 horsepower if the buyer chooses the appropriate options. Aprilia has also designed the 2016 RSV4 RF to be legal in various national stock-based road racing classes.

Sporting full lighting, the 2016 Aprilia RSV4 RF is also street legal.
