In honor of the 2012 World Superbike Champion Aprilia RSV4, Aprilia USA has developed a limited edition 2013 RSV4 Factory exclusively for the North American market. The company announced the motorcycle on its Facebook page Thursday morning. Nowhere else in the world will the 2013 RSV4 Factory APRC ABS SBK Special Edition be available for sale.
Features of the RSV4 Factory include state-of-the-art Bosch 3 level ABS, new Brembo M430 front calipers and front brake master cylinder, refined Aprilia Traction Control and map 1 Aprilia Wheelie Control for racing use, revised engine positioning inside the chassis to ensure ideal weight distribution, increased performance exhaust, optimized engine, friction reduction, improved crankcase ventilation and a new 200/55-17 rear tire (now also available on the 2013 RSV4 R APRC ABS).
This 2013 Special Edition has a redesigned fuel tank taken directly from the SBK RSV4 race machines, improved feeling during braking and in the corners, increased fuel capacity (4.8 gal. / 18.5 l), lower rider seat height (-0.19 inch / -5 mm) and a new satin headlight finish.
The SBK race replica model will be available at U.S. and Canadian dealers in April. Pricing will be announced on February 1.
