Aprilia RSV4 FW-GP | 250+ HP Factory Works MotoGP
Aug 04, 2017

The 2017 Aprilia RSV4 FW-GP’s 65-degree V4 is based on the same one in the RS GP-15 that was used during Aprilia’s return to MotoGP in 2015. The RSV4 FW-GP is fitted with a V4 that has its bore increased to 81mm (from base model’s 78mm bore) and pneumatic valve timing (metal bellows with compressed air close valves over traditional springs) that should offer a serious upper rpm limit. Aprilia says this combines to create “more than” 250 horsepower.

“The RSV4 is the best example of the close collaboration between the racing world and production. With the Factory Works program, Aprilia Racing now offers something more, something truly unique – the chance to own a true racing bike. Different levels of sophistication are available: it starts with an RSV4 optimized for the track, moving on to the SSTK version (exactly like the bike that dominated the 2015 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup) all the way to a true Superbike.
