The 2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory Is The Ultimate Track Destroyer
The legendary Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory returns for 2020 with a few unexpected improvements to what many believed to be an already perfect sports motorcycle. With added riding features, new technology, and improved performance, the 2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory is one of the most impressive sports bikes on the market.
Aprilia has upgraded the RSV4 1100 Factory’s suspension with the same Ohlins Electronic Suspension that you’d usually see on the Tuono. The new suspension drastically improves handling and rideability, working in tandem with a new electric steering damper for the ultimate racing experience.
The classic Aprilia longitudinal 65° 4-stroke V4 engine produces an exceptional 217 horsepower and 90 lb-ft of peak torque. While the engine hasn’t seen much in the way of an upgrade, Aprilia has reduced the overall weight of the motorcycle by adding a plethora of carbon fiber parts, improving the power-to-weight ratio. Other top shelf parts include a titanium slip-on exhaust from Akrapovic, Brembo brakes, and forged aluminum wheels.
The 2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory is available in the matte black Atomic Racer color scheme, with a racing livery that shows off the motorcycle’s exquisite aluminum twin-spar frame. Prices start at $25,499.

2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory Features
Aprilia RSV4 – the evolution
Aprilia adds aerodynamic winglets to the fairing for the first time on a factory superbike, thanks to developments made by Aprilia Racing on the RS-GP prototype from which they are derived.
Freedom of choice
The first, developed for use with slick tires, particularly suits circuits with a very smooth surface; the second, for use with compound tires and at tracks with uneven asphalt; the third is dedicated to the road, characterized by freer hydraulics that better absorb imperfections in the road surface. In manual mode, on the other hand, the 3 maps (M1, M2 and M3) provide as many predefined calibration tipes without semi-active assistance, in the same way as mechanical suspension systems operate.
Both in the semi-active and manual mode, the user still has the possibility, within the three aforementioned logic maps, to fine tune suspension calibration based on personal taste and riding style.
