As far as looks are concerned, Aprilia bikes can be hard to beat, and the 2011 RXV certainly lives up to expectations. The first things you notice are the razor-sharp fenders and super-lean body style. Trimmed of all excess details, the 2011 Aprilia RXV is beautifully minimalistic. Because of this, all of its elements are showcased, from the big shock absorbers up front, to the fat, chrome-tipped exhaust on the back. The bike’s iconic red, white, and black paint scheme plays perfectly with the brushed silver accents of its engine and deep black of its big, knobby tires. Seat height is a comfortable 39.2 inches off the ground, which may seem to be slightly high, but is actually lower than previous models. For an off-roader, the RXV has a decent sized fuel tank at 3.2 gallons.
