Now available at Aprilia dealerships in the U.S. is the 2012 RSV4 Factory retailing for $22,999.
The RSV4 was introduced in 2010. The 2011 and 2012 models add, as standard equipment, the Aprilia Performance Ride Control (APRC) package, which is the same electronics package found on the race bikes. The 2012 version also has some small gearing and engine component changes as well as a change in the graphics package.
The APRC system provides the rider with traction control, wheelie control, launch control and quick shift.
The RSV4 Factory APRC is powered by Aprilia’s 999cc longitudinal 65-degree V-4 engine with dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. Maximum power is a claimed 180 hp at 12,250 rpm. Maximum torque is a claimed 85 ft.-lbs. at 10,000 rpm.
For more information on the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC, visit ApriliaUSA.com and the new Aprilia microsite, ApriliaMasters.com. The latter invites riders to get more familiar with the brand and the motorcycles through customer experiences, online trivia with user rewards, action-packed videos, and an “infographic” featuring company firsts and race wins.
The Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC is currently leading the 2012 World Superbike Championship. This weekend, Max Biaggi, Eugene Laverty and the Aprilia SBK team will be rolling into Salt Lake City for the only SBK round in North America.
