V4 of 65°
The first high performance narrow V four cylinder engine in the world; the most revolutionary engine ever made by Aprilia is incomparable thanks to its unique “total electronics” package, its incredible lightness and super compact size, reaches a new stage in evolution. The engine has been updated and improved with particular attention paid to reducing internal friction and increasing casing ventilation. The exhaust system too has been remodelled to providemaximum performance working in combination with a finely tuned electronic management system. This brings the maximum power of the 65° V4 to 184 CV with torque now arriving at 117 Nm. The 3 distinct mappings (Track, Sport and Road), were matched to the new power and torque specifications of the V4 to provide even fuller and in-depth power output at any engine speed.
THE NEW FRONTIER IN TECHNOLOGY
The same incomparable electronic control package as found on the RSV4 Factory ABS is also fitted to the ABS R version. aPRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control), which comes as standard, is the well-known system control package that comes directly from race winning experience gained in the Superbike series. It is the most complete, sophisticated package there is out of those currently on the market. aPRC includes:
• aTC: Aprilia Traction Control, automatically adjusts to different types of tyres, with 8 settings that can be conveniently selected on the move from a joystick on the left handlebar without closing the throttle;
• aWC: Aprilia Wheelie Control, with three settings;
• aLC: Aprilia Launch Control, for use on the track only, with 3 settings;
• aQS: Aprilia Quick Shift, for ultra-fast gear shifting without closing the throttle or using the clutch.
On the Aprilia RSV4 R ABS, the APRC system has been further developed: it now integrates even better with the full Ride by Wire electronic multi-map V4 engine management system to meet the specific needs of both road users and professional race riders. The performance of the system provides smoother power delivery for improved high speed cornering but does not penalise traction on exiting low speed bends. In addition to this second generation aPRC, the RSV4 also adopts a highly advanced ABS multi-map system that ensures not just maximum safety on the road but even better performance on the track.
