From Aprilia's domination in the world superbike championship, the motorcycle that already set new standards for the supersports street bike genre: Aprilia RSV4 APRC.
A symbol of the “race ready” bike, RSV4 APRC is even faster and safer on the track today thanks to the APRC dynamic controls package.
Three innovative systems patented by Aprilia which constantly monitor the dynamic conditions of the bike and operate on the engine control to support the rider in reaching maximum racing speed. Electronics package features launch control, wheelie control, traction control, and quick shift, as well as 3 on the fly selectable maps. The 2013 RSV4 APRC ABS also features 3 selectable ABS programs - rain, sport, or track.
