The gearbox features the linear sensor, which ensures the perfect gearshift operation.
The new Aprilia RSV4 RR my2017 Sports Bike uses the latest Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC), which is well known dynamic control suite. This is the latest and refined system currently available in the market. Due to the repositioning of the inertial platform, the precise detection of the dynamic conditions of this bike has been improved. It results in more efficient electronic control strategies. The fourth generation of the Aprilia APRC meets the requirement of an electronic management of the new full Ride-by-Wire throttle. This eliminates all the superfluous throttle body electronic management components. The APRC comes as the standard equipment to the new Aprilia RSV4 RR my2017 Sports Bike and this package includes:
- The New Aprilia Traction Control (ATC): It is completely adjustable without releasing the throttle and it comes with eight settings. It features the practical joystick that allows the fine-tuned and high performance operating logic.
- The New Aprilia Wheelie Control (AWC): This control comes in three levels and has accurate operating strategies. This control is now adjustable without closing the throttle.
- The New Aprilia Launch Control (ALC): This control is especially made for track use only and it has three settings. It uses more effective operating strategies.

The 9.1 MP system with truly contained, weight and dimension, is able to optimize braking and ABS intervention during corners. This is possible due to the specific algorithm that constantly monitors the various parameter such as lateral acceleration. The pressure applied to its brake lever modulates the braking action to guarantees the best ratio between deceleration and stability. The Cornering ABS, fine-tuned in accordance with Aprilia’s specific indication. It is adjustable to three levels of sensibility and it can be switched off. Each of these three Cornering ABS maps can be combined with any of three new engine maps i.e. Sport, Track, and Race. It allows the riders with different experience and skill levels to find the best possible combination for their style.
