2010 Aprilia RSV4R
Reaching the most incredible finishing lines with regards to emotions and performances, lap after lap.
Feeling the adrenaline of speeding going through the veins, each time you are on the saddle. Being first in technology.
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.
