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