Aprilia_RSV4_R.jpgA note to Aprilia: when you choose to partner with a website for an exclusive first unveil of a new product, it may be a good idea to ask that website not to publish a low-res image of the bike ahead of time. It ruins the impact of the unveiling and guarantees the first image everyone sees of your new bike will be a crappy one. Having said that, the Aprilia RSV4 R looks great in white. Kudos to you for using restrained, classy graphics.

We've seen the RSV4 R before of course, so we already know that it gets
lower spec Showa instead of the Ohlins suspension on the Aprilia RSV4
Factory
, normal aluminum alloy instead of forged rims and probably
run-of-the-mill Brembo radial brakes instead of Monoblocs. The fairing
will also ditch the carbon fiber in favor of plastic. Significantly,
the R retains the Factory's 180bhp 999.6cc V4. Look for official info
and high-res images this weekend.
