RSV4 R model is the starting point of the range Aprilia Superbike class this year. With a price of 15,000 euros, is a super bike for normal people, a machine that allows them to experience the sensations that offers the engine inspired by GP 999cc liquid-cooled-four, and the compact aluminum, inspired also from the great award, everything wrapped by the aerodynamic fairing design.

In terms of aesthetics, this model does not resemble its Japanese competitors or with other and anywhere. As usual, designers continue to push the limits of Aprilia motorcycle design to the limit, inventing a form fluid aerodynamics. Design is a synergy between appearance and functionality. If you look carefully, you notice that the lighthouse’s RSV4R is derived from the predecessor. It has two main projects for the beam and main beam projector. Above are mirrors, which include steering and signaling. The stop of the motorcycle is triangular in shape which resembles that of the new Audi sports car series R.

Although it is difficult to see it in the pictures, seen live, RSV4‘s fairing shape is very angular. In fact, the only flat and unused for the entire bike is top of the side panels. Above is added with even more style, as two symmetrical triangular vents, which vent the engine. The rest of the fairing, especially in the back, many fins give the shark looking after a prey.

The strength of RSV4R his is the ultra-compact engine V four. It is built into the house without Rotax assistance (engine manufacturer on RSV1000R). The engine is on the base almost identical to the model with $ 5,000 more expensive, Factory, just it uses aluminum intake fixadin (unlike magnesium tubes with variable length). The best part: the declared maximum power is the same.

The motorcycle uses a cassette 6-speed transmission. Aprilia has not specified if gears can be purchased with different ratios. There is no four-stroke V4 engine more compact than that of RSV4R. Transmission allows quick removal and changing of gear ratios, however, Aprilia did not specify if can be purchased gears with different ratios.

The clutch is cast from a single piece of aluminum and each cylinder has interior dimensions of 78 x 52.3mm, compression ratio being 13.1:1. The cylinders are inclined at 65 degrees, which allows the engine to remain short from front to back. The top of the engine consists of two cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder, with the camshaft of intake chain driven and the evacuation axis trained with pinion.

The 2011 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC really can become as fast as an arrow.
