    Default Aprilia celebrates 10 years with RSV4 X: 225 Bhp. 165 Kg. 10 units!

    Aprilia introduced the RSV4 1100 Factory some time ago and what a fantastic beast it was. But seems like the Noale firm is in no mood to stop the party and they have just announced the showstopper. In celebration of 10 years of Aprilia, they have launched the Aprilia RSV4 X which is a limited edition track monster ready to blow anything in its path, away. It has 225 Bhp of power and weighs just 165 Kgs (dry) but sadly enough, it will only be limited to 10 units so you can put that wallet back.



    Ten years after the birth of the first RSV4 in 2009, Aprilia introduces the RSV4 X, a very special commemorative version limited to just ten units of the new RSV4 1100 Factory, dedicated exclusively to the track. That Aprilia Racing experience is also evident in the work carried out to lighten the motorbike, which results in an exceptional dry weight of 165 kg. To achieve this, Aprilia Racing selected a series of lightweight components, such as the carbon fairing, with special dedicated graphics inspired by the livery of the Aprilia RS-GP competing in the 2019 MotoGP World Championship, as well as a tank that is the same shape as the original, but more lightweight. Another competition-derived element is the racing push-button panel for adjustment of the main electronic controls making up the RSV4 X. There are numerous billet aluminium details, such as the clutch lever, the front brake lever guard, the engine sump guards, the adjustable foot pegs and the upper steering plate, important details that make for a further weight saving. Marchesini forged magnesium wheels magnify the already spectacular handling of the RSV4 and mount Pirelli slick tyres.

    The Akrapovic exhaust system features titanium manifolds and a carbon tailpipe, while the air filter has been replaced with a Sprintfilter element: the air filter with the highest permeability available on the market (as well as being waterproof), the same unit used by Aprilia Racing in MotoGP. Electronic tuning is guaranteed by a specific ECU mapping, with dedicated track settings. These components ensure an increase in maximum power, from 217 Bhp for the standard model, to the impressive 225 HP of the RSV4 X. The Aprilia V4 is equipped with the ANN (Aprilia No Neutral) system, the gearbox with neutral positioned below first gear that speeds up shifting from first to second and prevents any up-shifting errors. This solution derives directly from Aprilia experience in WSBK and MotoGP and is made available to the public on a production model for the very first time. Another world first involves the Brembo braking system, the company choosing the Aprilia RSV4 X to debut its refined and extremely efficient machined from solid GP4-MS callipers. These act on a pair of steel brake discs with T-Drive technology and are controlled by a machined from solid 19x16 radial pump.

    The ten specimens of the Aprilia RSV4 X are priced at 39,900 Euro! They can be reserved exclusively online from the second half of April from https://factoryworks.aprilia.com. The buyers will get the chance to collect the bike from Aprilia Racing and also get to enjoy an exclusive tour of the Noale racing department.
