Chassis Features

An all-new Aprilia 2020 RSV4 1100 Factory Heavy Motorcycle is among those born to rule the world. The new Semi-Active suspension is developed in collaboration with Ohlins experts. They were also used in Aprilia Tuono V4 111 Factory and gave incredible results. The latest EC 2.0 system by Ohlins is specially tuned for RSV4 to ensure better performance and superior damping force.

The control unit that monitors the Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension system has access to the RSV4’s electronic system. It detects the riding modes and calibrates the fork setting accordingly. As a result, the rider will have better suspension support on track and more excellent feeling with the front wheel. Furthermore, it can easily handle the uneven asphalt surfaces with great ease. The semi-active suspension system ensures simple and even customized calibration of both fork and shock absorbers with two operating modes, i.e., semi-active mode and manual mode. Both of the methods can be easily selected by using the buttons mounted on the handlebar.

From the start, Aprilia is famous for its chassis design, and the new Aprilia 2020 RSV4 1100 Factory Heavy Motorcycle represents the synthesis of technical prowess. Aprilia has acquired in the top-level world championships. When it comes to the RSV4 RR and Factory, the Aprilia Engineers have used an exceptional variety of adjustments that the standard equipment chassis can offer. It’s a fact that the Aprilia RSV4 is the only superbike on the planet that allows the rider and owner to adjust the engine position in the frame.

The braking system remains unaltered and consists up of a pair of Brembo Stylema calipers, which is not only lightweight but is highly efficient as well. The brake calipers can be easily combined with the team of carbon air ducts that allow the rider to control operating temperature while ensuring the same exceptional braking performance. The curb weight of the bike with a full tank is 199 kg, thanks to the Akrapovic titanium exhaust tailpipes and an ultralight lithium battery.

Performance

The new Aprilia 2020 RSV4 1100 Factory Heavy Motorcycle comes with the highest possible level of performance that no other bike can beat. Thanks to the new V4 from Noale, none of the engines can best the ten-year-long history of wins. It can satisfy the need of the most advanced sport rider and also an excellent base around which to develop a racing motorcycle. It is the world’s first full-scale bike with a narrow high-performance V4 engine, the most revolutionary and highly influential engine ever built by Aprilia.

The engine provides excellent performance due to the use of the latest electronics. It is not only light in weight but is extremely compact as well. The narrow V-architecture has made it possible to make the engine too close lengthways to centralize weight. The timing system uses the very particular kinematics; the chain camshaft drives the intake camshaft, which provides an exhaust camshaft via a gear. The RSV4 1100 Factory’s engine delivers its displacement with new pistons having 81 mm of the bore and 52.3 mm. The compression ratio of 13.6:1 ensures that the rider receives an uninterrupted power supply. The wet-sump lubrication system uses the oil pump and the payload to control the overall temperature of pistons.
