2015 Aprilia RSV4 RR
The new Aprilia RSV4 RR comes bearing a compact 999cc 65-degree liquid-cooled V-Four engine, both cylinder heads have revised porting and new lighter valvetrain hardware with the valves now fabricated from titanium and spun by reshaped camshafts that are more than a pound lighter. It has a revised airbox and redesigned secondary set of fuel injectors, electronically adjustable intake funnels and the engine’s oil lubrication system also sees some tweaks for improved durability. The Aprilia RSV4 RR’s exhaust system was redesigned and adds another oxygen sensor. Aprilia claims that its V-Four is capable of producing 201 horsepower at 13,000 rpm as measured from the crankshaft for roughly 165-170 horsepower at the business end of the rear tire.
