The Aprilia RSV4 brings top performance found on the World Superbike and MotoGP championships and places that power within reach of the average speed demon. Not only does its V-4 engine provide the utmost performance, it is paired with a track-dominating cast aluminum chassis, top-shelf suspension, and advanced electronics for the most dynamic ride possible. This is a sportbike for riders who are greedy for every trackday they can get, but also expect every street ride to have just as much thrill.

2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory/RSV4 1100 RR Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

In our 2019 Superbike Shootout at Thunderhill Race Park, we put the 1100 Factory to the test between the Ducati Panigale V4 S and BMW S 1000 RR (see the Aprilia’s hot lap here). Compared to the others, the 1100 Factory made all three test riders comfortable with its rideability and confident in its planted chassis and smooth, raw speed—and it clocked the fastest lap time of the three—which conclusively led to it being the winner of the comparison.
