2007 Aprilia RSV1000R
The Aprilia RSV 1000R as undoubtedly made its mark on the history of performance Twins. Its combination of an agile chassis, top-shelf brake and suspension components coupled with a 120-horsepower motor has been tough for consumers to ignore for nearly a decade. If there are any doubters among us, look no further than the results of the 2006 Master Bike competition for proof that the Mille is still an elite superbike in this age of In-Line repli-racers. The 2006 RSV1000R Factory was chosen as the bike of choice by a contingent of international moto-journalists and who are we to question their conclusion.
