2019 Aprilia RSV4 RR Factory 1000 Sports Bike – Features and Price
The Aprilia brand is well-known as a stylish chassis manufacturer in the world. This RSV4 RR Factory 1000 represents the synthesis of the technical prowess Aprilia has acquired in the top-level world championship. This motorcycle gives an outstanding range of possible adjustment that the standard equipment chassis can provide. The Aprilia is the only super motorcycle that allows the rider to adjust the engine position in the frame, the swingarm pivot, the headstock, and the rear end height.
The overall chassis structure of the Aprilia frame has remained unchanged, and it takes advantage of its new forged and molded aluminum elements capable of ensuring exceptional performance. The frame and the suspension step-up and the weight distribution on the RSV4 1100 Factory have been revisited. The inclination of the headstock reduces due to the new steering bushing, and the offset of the original steering yoke also changes i.e., decreased by 2 mm. The overall structure makes it possible to bring the front end closer to the rider that increases the load on the front wheel but without decreasing agility. The main reason behind the success on RSV4 is its performance in the delicate and crucial braking-tuning-corned speed phase that Aprilia has managed to further amplify on RSV4 1000 Factory. The new Ohlins NIX fork containing the wheel travel of 5 mm more gives an ultimate performance.
Two other prestigious Ohlins elements complete the suspension system. There are adjustable series of TTX shock absorber and fully adjustable steering damper. The RSV4 1100 Factory has undergone some of the changes in its swingarm that make it stiffer with an increase in yaw and torsion, ensuring precise coming out of comes.
The braking system has been revised that features the Brembo Style front calipers, which is lighter and more efficient, taking the place of M50 calipers and the newly attached with pads with higher friction. The braking calipers are now connected with the pair of carbon air ducts that allow the operating temperature under control, guaranteeing the same outstanding braking performance even in the most extreme use. The curb weight of the bike is 199 kg, thanks due to the introduction of an all-new titanium exhaust terminal and the new ultra-light Bosch lithium battery.
The Aprilia 2019 RSV4 RR Factory 1000 and Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory is attached with an excellent dynamic controls package designed and patented by Aprilia. Each of these two models contains the specific calibration of all of its controls in line with the different performance levels the two motorcycles can boast. The new APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) is a well-known dynamic control suite, which is derived from the award winning technology in the world of superbike. It is the most complete and highly refined currently available on the market. The precise positioning and orientation of the inertial platform that governs the operation of the system. It allows achieving optimum possibilities of detaching the bike’s dynamic conditions and, consequently, more effective electronic control strategies.
The fourth evolution of the Aprilia’s APRC is entirely incorporated with an electronic fine tuning ensured by the full Ride-by-Wire throttle control. It has a built-in and requires no other components for an all-new electronic throttle valve management. The APRC comes as standard on Aprilia RSV4 RR Factory 1000 includes;
- ATC (Aprilia Traction Control)
- AWC (Aprilia Wheelie Control)
- ALC (Aprilia Launch Control)
- AQS (Aprilia Quick Shift)
- APL (Aprilia Pit Limiter)
- ACC (Aprilia Cruise Control)
Along with the fourth generation of the APRC system, the RSV4 RR comes from the factory standard with an advanced multi-map corning ABS. It is developed in collation with Bosch to ensure not only extreme safety on the road. The 9.1 MP system ensure optimize braking and ABS international in corners. It is all possible due to specific algorithms that monitor various parameters i.e., lateral acceleration, the lean, pitch, the pressure applied to the front brake lever, and yaw angle.
The color TFT instrumentation is the perfect digital computer that contains an exceptional display features, which is now further improved thanks to increased brightness. There are two selectable screen pages i.e., Road and Race. The Aprilia Multi-map platform allows the rider to connect the phone to the bike via Bluetooth.
There are a number of original accessories available for the Aprilia RSV4 RR 1000 Factory;
- Slip-on racing exhaust
- Complete racing exhaust
- Öhlins TTX shock absorber
- Öhlins steering damper
- Components in carbon
- Front brake air intakes
- Öhlins NIX Fork
- Mirror plugs
- License plate hole cover
