Meet the RSV4 FW-GP, Aprilia’s Answer to the Honda RC213V

There are a handful of fortunate wealthy individuals, Aprilia offers some serious deception RSV4 tracking bike. Last Aprilia Motorsport launched the “Factory” program, essentially allowing consumers to buy WSBK-spec bike stores directly from the factory race. Obviously this project was good enough, Aprilia decided not only to continue but to expand.

2017 Aprilia offers up-spec fleet, track-only bike from RSV4 R FW-SSTK1 (This is a base RSV4 RR and abbreviation factory works on SuperStock 1) Ohlins suspension, forged wheels, a lightweight lithium-ion battery , And upgrade the electronics, has been to the fans MotoGP-based RSV4 R FW-GP.

That bad boy is derived from the RS-GP 15, the bike Aprilia raced in MotoGP in 2015. It’s said to make 250 hp thanks in no small part to pneumatic valve actuation. Compared to traditional coil-spring valve control, pneumatic valves offer more precise valve control but more importantly greater valve lift. That adds up to an insane redline as well as absurd power, and this is the first bike you can buy that offers this incredible technology. Pneumatic valves are one of the things Honda refused to include in last year’s RC213V, much to many enthusiasts’ disappointment.

Last year’s Superbike-based track bike was a surprise, so this complex thing is unprecedented. According to Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Motors Technical Manager: “In 2017 we decided to push far, available, with an extreme RSV4 configuration equipped with engine pneumatic timing.FW-GP, Aprilia Racing provides its customers not only with race technology but also with Special treatment information, support, and fine-tuning of the bike before, during and after the purchase. ”
