About the Aprilia RSV4 RF

The RSV4 RF is powered by the same 999.6cc V4 engine as the Previous RSV4 Factory, but with a some updates to produce 201bhp.

It now features titanium valves, new valve springs, a new airbox, injectors and cylinder heads. Weight savings are numerous, with 500g off the camshaft and 400g off the connecting rods (2.5kg in total). 

Visually the front fairing is new and features brighter LED lights and to increase traction the swingarm has been extended by 14mm. 

The RF is actually based on a cheaper Aprilia RSV4 RR version however that is not available to buy in the UK. Differences include Ohlins suspension, forged aluminium wheels and racing graphics.
