Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta First Look: Price

The Aprilia RSV4 has an outstanding track record, from World Superbike to local track days. In 2019, the RSV4 X appeared, upping the ante for closed circuit aficionados. The folks from the Noale Racing Department are taking another step forward with the Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta. They add knowledge gleaned from the RS-GP MotoGP racer and apply it to a motorcycle intended for the most demanding customer. Here’s what we know about the XTrenta.

  1. The 2022 Aprilia RSV4 Factory serves as the base for the XTrenta. From that already potent platform, upgrades are made to increase power, handling, and overall performance.

  1. A JetPrime switch panel is used by the rider to manipulate the electronics. 

  1. The motor temperatures are reduced by Taleo Tecnoracing radiators for the oil and engine coolant. The technology used comes from World Superbike.

  1. The carbon fiber fairing is produced by Pan Compositi. The same method of construction used for MotoGP fairings is employed for the XTrenta. The front wings are all-new, creating more load, yet less drag.

  1. The tail section gets the latest wing technology.

  1. The Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta has an underwing on the swingarm, as used on the RS-GP.

  1. According to Aprilia, the aerodynamics package reduces drag by four percent while increasing load by 25 percent.

  1. To handle the increased power and improved efficiencies, the XTrenta has muscular braking. Brembo GP4-MS calipers grasp 330mm T-drive discs.

  1. The Öhlins suspension is not stock. Aprilia’s MotoGP engineers worked with the Andreani Group to set the RSV4 for pure-track performance. The top triple-clamp is billet and built by Aprilia Racing.

  1. As a track bike, slicks are de rigueur. The Pirelli Diablo SBK front 120/70 slick uses the SC-1 compound, while the 200/65 rear has the SC-X compound. The tires are mounted on Marchesini M7R Genesi magnesium alloy rims.

  1. Other upgrades include the footpegs, hand levers, and fuel cap.
