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.
