The RSV4… The civil motorcycle of Superbike. That which brought the title to Noale in 2010 and brought back in 2012. A tool dedicated to the track with an interaction closer to the phantasm, and delirious V4 which bewitches you. In is it necessary today?
More than ever, because competition competes of ingeniousness to get a place with the zenith of the podiums. The hypersport of Aprilia receives an important update of its potential. Its engine gains breath: the redrawn exhaust and polished electronic management make it possible to leave 4 horses moreover; the priesthood now develops 184 horses to 12,500 RPM. The couple also climbs, displaying with the max 117 NM with 10,500 RPM.
On the nose gear wheel, an informed eye will have located the new clamps of brake Brembo M430 cast solid; more difficult but nevertheless notable, the radial Master-cylinder and the radial clamp are new also. However, which you noticed the most, it is this small track notched. Like the CBR 1000 RR, the S 1000 RR, the ZX- 10R or Ducati 1199 Panigale, and soon all the other monsters of the circuit, the RSV4 Factory obtain ABS. In fact, system 9MP of Bosch. Very light (approx. 2 kilos), it is disengageable and adjustable on 3 levels: – Level 1/Track: mode optimized for the track. It acts on the two wheels and works to obtain the best possible performances. – Level 2/Sport: The anti-locking one acts more gradually by combining braking before and back. – Level 3/Rain: Intrusive, it is parameterized for the conditions of low adherence.
To put this ABS, Aprilia re-examined the tank, and even succeeded in increasing its capacity: from 17, it can now accommodate 18.5 liters. Ergonomics also improves, with some adjustments and a lower base.
Each mapping of Bosch 9MP can combine with the 3 ways of managing engine, history to make you a personalized dynamic behavior. And to give best itself, the RSV4 preserves and update its APRC, which comprises: – ATC: anti-skid the, adjustable one in 8 positions, manages the couple and optimizes traction as well as possible. – AWC: the Antione. Also adjustable, it makes it possible to draw the maximum of acceleration available without wasting energy in capers. – ALC: An assistance with the departure allowing to sign takeoffs of the rocket. You put gas into large, and in top form, it is enough to slacken the clutch so that the motorcycle manages only optimum acceleration. There too, has there average to regulate their; 3 possible levels. – AQS: The shifter Aprilia, which makes it possible to at a stretch pass the reports of boots without slackening the right handle nor to intervene on the clutch. The electronics of Aprilia Performance Wrinkles Control profits from an update reinforcing its effectiveness.
Let us not forget the superb elements of the frame, the pride of this edition factory. Positioning of the adjustable engine, Öhlins suspensions, parts out of carbon, rims forged, tallies parametric in aluminum resulting from the Aprilia experiment in GP 250 (18 world titles nevertheless). The 1000 RSV4 remains a superb machine, on a level of in the top form effectiveness of the Cast solid catégorie. BO, aluminum rims forged, superb V4 of 180 horses (the power does not increase but the system of lubrication is re-examined) with adjustment of its position in the frame, and multiple cartographies of injection. The RSV4 Factory APRC also preserves small the updates which the SE had brought, namely an exhaust frankly less unpleasant and much slimmer, a 200 mm broad back tire and reports of limps optimized. A tariff repositioning at the beginning of 2012 fact of falling the price under the 19,000 euros, which returns it trying incredibly.
