The Aprilia RSV 1000 R is built around a aluminium and silicon alloy frame. The frame has been designed for improved riding control and is 5% more rigid than the previous version. It also weighs in 600 grams lighter.

The 2005 Aprilia RSV 1000 R set a new standard for design from Aprilia. Its aggressive lines ensure improved aerodynamic penetration and thermal efficiency from the engine. The cockpit fairing, with four headlights and dynamic air intake transforms air into power and power into speed.

The front of the 2005 RSV-R was completely new, with direction indicators integrated in the mirrors and four paired headlights for greater lighting efficiency.

The rear light cluster incorporates an extremely advanced, ultrasound sealed, honeycomb structure comprising 16 variable intensity LEDs.

The double exhaust is another track-derived innovation on the RSV 1000 R. It improves overall balance and aerodynamics at high speed.

The 2005 RSV 1000 R is even more compact than before, meaning easier control and greater feel in all riding situations.

The RSV 1000 R is lower and more compact, with optimum weight distribution. And when it comes to aerodynamics, the bike has achieved such perfection as to defy description. Thanks to its record Cx value of only 0.3, the new RSV 1000 R delivers better than ever performance and rider protection even under conditions of extreme turbulence, as generated during extensive wind tunnel testing.

The RSV 1000 R’s V 60° Magnesium engine has achieved exceptional results in terms of power, triumphally passing the 100 kW mark to deliver a mighty 102 kW. This is the result of extensive development of Aprilia’s already legendary 60° longitudinal V twin. The new V60° Magnesium incorporates so many technical innovations that it is really a completely new engine, capable of delivering unrivalled performance and satisfaction. The power unit derives its name from the magnesium cylinder head and clutch covers chosen to keep weight down to an absolute minimum.
