2019 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory MC Commute Review

A ride on Aprilia’s punched-out RSV4 1100 superbike in this review.

Aprilia came out swinging in the superbike class when it debuted its original RSV4 10 years ago. Over the years, the Italian manufacturer has steadily refined its V-4-powered superbike into one of the sharpest road-legal sportbikes made today. A perennial favorite for track riders and racers around the globe, for 2019 it gets even meaner in the form of the carbon fiber winglet-equipped 2019 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory.

Featuring a punched-out 1,078cc V-4 engine that's good for 190 hp at the business end of the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tire and a well-balanced chassis sprung with the latest and greatest suspension from Öhlins, the RSV4 1100 Factory means business on the racetrack. The RSV4 1100 already won us over during both our First Ride and in the Cycle World 2019 Superbike Comparison. But how does this rowdy-sounding superbike perform in the real world, on the street?

Tune in to this episode of MC Commute to learn how this Italian-made rocket performs on the road during the work week commute. Watch it now and see and hear the RSV4 rip across SoCal super slab.
