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.
BMW S1000RR Pro M Sport
The S1000RR received a full model change for 2019, which debuted at the 2018 EICMA, Milan, Italy. The Pro M Sport is the top-spec variant that is powered by a 999cc in-line four producing 207hp and 113Nm of torque. Thanks to lighter components, the M package brings that kerb weight down to 193.5kg.
Ducati Panigale V4 S
The Panigale V4 was introduced by Ducati in 2018 and it is powered by a 1103cc V4 engine. The Panigale V4 S is a more performance-oriented version of the superbike that has 211hp on tap.
For 2020, Honda gave its iconic CBR1000RR a complete overhaul from the ground up. Honda says the redesigned bodywork and new engine of the CBR1000RR-R is based on the RC213V MotoGP bike. The 999.9 cc inline four-cylinder engine churns out 214.5hp of maximum power.
