This new video walks you through quick shift and the self-calibration. Previously, Aprilia has talked about the other elements of APRC — launch control and wheelie control; traction control and overall concept.

The big news with Aprilia recently is that APRC isn’t just fitted to the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE, but also to the $15,999 2011 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC and will also be included on the Aprilia Tuono V4R when that bike goes on sale this fall.
