    WHY RSV4?

    RSV4 project was born to bring motorsports technology directly to the road and reconfirm the passion and engineering capabilities of Aprilia even in the large engine capacity category.

    A bike developed for the track that embodies everything a rider desires to dominate the circuit, but which can be just as much fun to ride on the road. A concentrated engineering package developed around a 65 V4 engine, the layout identified as the best technical choice for a powerful, light, ultra-compact and extremely agile machine. A bike that marked Aprilias return to the WSBK championship 10 years after appearing on the scene, capable of winning 7 World Superbike championships and the 2015 FIM Superstock World Cup in the last seven years.

    14 MARCH 2009, IN THE SECOND ROUND OF WSBK, THE FIRST 2 PODIUMS WERE EARNED
