2017 Aprilia RSV4 R FW W SBK

Aprilia RSV4 is the natural evolution of an innovative project, capable in
just a few years of dominating World SBK, earning seven world titles in six
years and winning in its début in the FIM Superstock Cup, the championship
dedicated to bikes that are closely derived from their factory versions. Skills
honed on the track and transferred to the factory product to provide everyone
with the same excitement that the motorbikes prepared by Aprilia Racing do. Unanimously
acclaimed by critics and sought after by bikers from every corner of the globe,
the RSV4 has always been the undisputed segment representative, the reference
point for sportiness and performance, the best example of what can be achieved
by exploiting the valuable experience of a victorious Racing Department like
Aprilia’s which, in its brief history has taken 54 championship titles.

Different levels of sophistication are available: it starts with
an RSV4 optimised for the track, moving on to the SSTK version (exactly like
the bike that dominated the 2015 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup) all the way to a
true Superbike. Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Technical Manager s on the new and
extraordinary initiative: “Aprilia Racing has always competed in the
most selective world speed championships, like MotoGP, in order to acquire
experience and to develop technologies that we can also apply to the factory
product. The RSV4 is the best example of the close collaboration between the
racing world and production. With the FW-GP, Aprilia Racing provides its customers, not only with the technology
developed in MotoGP, but also with special treatment in terms of information,
support and fine-tuning of the bike before, during and after the purchase,
just like the riders have who race with Aprilia Racing, in order to allow
them to take maximum advantage of this exceptional bike’s full potential. With the Factory Works programme, Aprilia Racing
now offers something more, something truly unique – the chance to own a true
racing bike. For 2017 we decided to push farther, making an extreme RSV4
configuration available, fitted with an engine that has pneumatic valve timing.
