hlins Racing fork with titanium nitride (TiN) coated stanchions.
Aluminium steering pin and bottom yoke.
Brembo Triple Bridge radial front brake calipers.
Forged caliper mounting blocks for greater rigidity and stability under braking.
The combined digital and analog instrument panel receives data on all engine control parameters over a CAN line and incorporates memory to allow it to act as an integral part of the self-diagnostics system. The instrument panel provides the same readouts as the previous model (including a self timer with a 40 lap memory), but is now extremely modern and compact in design and weighs only 220 grams. All functions are controlled by three conveniently located keys. The LED backlighting may be set to three levels and is white for the analog instruments and red for the digital display.
The headlight cluster incorporates four lights for perfect night riding vision. The great care taken over the design and finish of the RSV 1000 R also transpires from little but important details like bulb holders made from blue anodised aluminium.
The white lens direction indicators are fully integrated in the bikes body. The front indicators are moulded into the rear view mirrors while the rear indicators are built into the tail. This means that there is no need to remove them for track use. The rear number plate holder can also be removed quickly and easily to comply with competition regulations.
Even the ignition key is specially made for the RSV 1000 R and carries an internal identification code. The ignition block has an immobiliser fitted as standard.
The alloy wheels share the same forked spoke design as the exclusive forged wheels of the
EngineLongitudinal 60 V twin engine with 4 valves per cylinder and double overhead camshaft, driven by a mixed chain and gear system.
Electronic fuel injection with 57 mm throttle bodies, one injector per cylinder, and an Air Runner ram air scoop.
CDI ignition with one plug per cylinder. Ignition is controlled by the same integrated engine management system that also controls fuel injection.
Dry sump lubrication with double trochoid pump, separate oil tank and oil cooler.
Mixed gear/chain valve timing drive with the two gears (one per timing chain) located in the crankcase to reduce cylinder head dimensions.
The RSV 1000 Rs sophisticated twin cylinder engine also incorporates the following exclusive Aprilia patents
AVDC (Anti Vibration Double Countershaft).
Hydraulic action clutch with radial master cylinder assisted by the patented PPC (Pneumatic Power Clutch) system to control rear wheel bounce during fierce braking.
