2016 Aprilia RSV4 RR ABS

The World Superbike winning Aprilia RSV4 gets a face lift for 2016, with a new wind-tunnel tested more-protective fairing, new headlights and new mirrors with integrated LED turn indicators.

Pumping out an incredible 201 horsepower at the crank, the RSV4 RR is a serious bike on the street or the track. Ergonomics are compact and the chassis wonderfully responsive.

Sachs suspension is fully adjustable, with the Brembo brakes and multi-channel ABS (which can be turned off) give the rider plenty of stopping confidence. It will take a while to master all the electronics options, but once you do, you will have a highly personalized ride.
