Aprilia’s V-Four Italian scallions, have won seven titles in the World Superbike Championship since they came online in 2009, in addition to winning the Rider and Manufacturers titles for the FIM Cup Superstock 1000 in 2015.
Aprilia Racing today introduced a program to make the same technology that was developed for the championship winning bikes available to anyone who wishes to compete in factory derivative championships or who wants an RSV4 with racetrack performance. The program will create Factory Works bikes, compliant with Superstock and Superbike Championship regulations in each country, with various levels of preparation in the engine and electric components, and with maximum horsepower in excess of 230.
The color scheme is a celebration of Aprilia’s first victory in roadracing competition.
