2009_Aprilia-RSV4-Details.jpg

Last night, when the 2009 Aprilia RSV4 leaked, we were a bit underwhelmed with its looks. But then, when we got our hands on the first official images of the Aprilia RSV4 Factory and Race Machine, we realized that something truly beautiful lay beneath the Total Recall headlights and red paint. Look at the Aprilia RSV4 in all-carbon and a muscular, aggressive, brutish machine takes shape. But to do that is only to appreciate part of the RSV4’s beauty, because its real appeal lies in its details. The amount of attention the Aprilia engineers and designers have given
to texture, form and an almost symphonic use of machined surfaces is
nothing short of astounding. Click through for our favorite parts
(there’s a lot of them).
