2012 Aprilia RSV4 R Extreme Super Sportbike

New 2012 Aprilia RSV4 R was born from the desire to offer the design and performance supremacy of Max Biaggi’s bike to the large public of enthusiasts, without the need of a specialised technical team. A bike that routs the opponents: the only superbike with standard V4 engine, the very first in the handling, technical refinement and design classification. The irresistible charm of RSV4 comes from the fact that it was designed without any aesthetic grant. Since it was conceived for the racing world, where each millimetre, each gram, each thousandth of second counts. Such a compact and efficient bike was never seen before: this is why it is so beautiful. Extreme care for the details and design innovation are found in all the elements: as the compact single silencer, studied in its shapes to increase the ground clearance, also during the most critical turns.

The frame and the engine are an integral part of the bike’s design, together with the few other, strongly characterising, elements designed with a focus on the track, whose shape was engineered in the wind tunnel. The research for the best aeration of the engine and of the highest aerodynamic penetration, brought to the creation of an innovative front end, with large air vents for the airbox, headlights that mark the border of the top fairing and turn indicators integrated in the rear-view mirrors. Even the spectacular tail fairing, with headlight consisting of a high luminosity led unit, was conceived with the aim to reduce the surfaces as much as possible, to increase aerodynamic efficiency.

2011 Aprilia RSV4 R is compact size and high technology also for the instrument panel. The instrument panel of mixed, digital and analogue type, receives all the information from the CAN line thus becoming an actual vehicle self-diagnosis system. All functions are controlled through the «MODE» command on the handlebar.

The electronic system comprises Aprilia Traction Control (ATC, with 8 settings, selectable via a joystick mounted on the left handlebar!), Aprilia Wheelie Control (AWC, with three settings), Aprilia Launch Control (ALC, with three settings) and Aprilia Quick Shift.

RSV4 R revolution starts from the bike’s heart, it is felt from the overwhelming roar of the 65° v 4-cylinder engine, and it is evident in the fantastic performance on the race circuit. The 65° v 4-cylinder engine is indeed the most revolutionary and, at the same time, the most powerful ever built by Aprilia. Its «narrow» V architecture allowed to create an engine as compact as a twin-cylinder, which improves performances in terms of power and torque. Vibrations mitigated thanks to a balancing countershaft.

The RSV4 R chassis was designed around the 65° V4 engine, to attain the perfect centralisation of the masses. A result optimised by the position of the tank, with fuel mostly underneath the saddle, to reduce the balance differences between full and empty. The front braking system is powerful, precise and modular. It uses monobloc Brembo callipers with 4 pistons and radial pump, which hold a 320 mm double disc with aluminium flange. The rear brake consists of a Brembo calliper with 2 pistons and 220 mm disc: the best available in racing technologies.
