Aprilia Racing Factory Works Kit

Aprilia Racing expands the Factory Works project, introducing a special kit for the RSV4 that intervenes in three areas: engine, weight and aerodynamics.

Power increases to 215 HP, weight drops 10 kg and the aerodynamic winglets arrive, the result of the study conducted for MotoGP.

Aprilia Racing is the most advanced Piaggio Group platform for the development of technology applied first to racing bikes and then to factory models.
Aprilia Racing Factory Works is therefore a unique programme that now expands thanks to the introduction of a special kit available for the Aprilia RSV4 - in the RR and RF MY17 and MY18 versions - capable of maximising engine performance, reducing overall weight and improving aerodynamics.
The kit includes a set of four single-groove pistons with a surface treatment to guarantee smoother action. These components alone ensure about a 4 HP increase in maximum power.
Overall, along with a new ECU that has a specific map for the Akrapovic exhaust, the complete kit lets you reach a maximum power of 215 shaft HP.
Aprilia Racing's experience can also be measured through targeted lightening operations, primarily to the advantage of handling, which is already outstanding on the standard RSV4 model.
The new Factory Works kit can be further enriched by a set of side fairings with winglets, the aerodynamic appendages that contribute to producing benefits in terms of bike stability.
For EICMA 2017, the new Factory Works kit will be presented on the Aprilia RSV4 RF, enhanced by a special, dedicated livery.
