2020 Aprilia RSV4 and Tuono RR Misano Limited Editions First Look

2020 Aprilia RSV4 RR 1000 and Tuono RR 1100 Misano Limited Editions: U.S. Only!

So often we see limited edition motorcycles in Europe and Japan, and all we can do is wax envious. However, Americans a chance to be a bit smug thanks to the 2020 Aprilia RSV4 RR 1000 and Tuono RR 1100 Misano Limited Editions that will only be available in the United States.

There’s nothing significantly technically different about the 2020 Misano Limited Editions. It’s primarily a styling exercise, though one with a legitimately sporting and historical background. The livery on the 2020 Aprilia RSV4 RR and Tuono RR Misano Limited Editions is inspired by the paint on the motorcycle that took Aprilia’s first victory in Grand Prix racing. Most obvious is the old-school large-A Aprilia logo.2020 Aprilia Misano Limited Editions - MSRP and Price

In 1987, Loris Reggiani took a two-stroke Aprilia to victory in the 250GP class at the San Marino Grand Prix at the Circuito Internazionale Santa Monica, now known as the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Reggiani had four podium finishes coming into Misano on the Team Aprilia factory racer, so his win was no fluke.2020 Aprilia Misano Limited Editions - Tuono RR 1100

The two motorcycles do get a carbon fiber front fender, along with a lithium battery, so they will be a bit lighter than the standard versions. The chassis and potent V4 motors are carried over from the standard RR models.
