Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory

For long, Aprilia’s flagship RSV4 has consistently topped the superbike shootouts, despite the fact that the track-focused motorcycle practically remained unchanged for over a decade. However, the Italian manufacturer finally updated the superbike by giving it a bigger engine with more power, along with new hardware and electronics. The new RSV4 1100 Factory uses a 1100cc V4 engine that produces a whopping 217hp and 122Nm of torque. In addition to that, the fire-breathing motorcycle’s frame and suspension setup have also been updated to handle a bump in power. Along with the changes to the ECU, the RSV4 1100 Factory also gets Aprilia’s APRC System (Aprilia Performance Ride Control), which includes traction, wheelie, launch and cruise controls, and a speed limiter, all of which can be configured and deactivated independently. It also comes with MotoGP-derived carbon-fibre aero winglets that increase downforce and offer better high-speed stability.
