The Aprilia RSV4 R which Aprilia unveiled at the Imola race circuit in Italy is a slightly cheaper, slightly heavier and slightly less-well specced version of the Aprilia RSV4 Factory. But it's still one hell of a bike.

The changes are designed to reduce the price by a significant amount (20-25%), while retaining almost parallel performance with the Factory version. Total weight for the RSV4 R is only 5 kgs (11 lbs) up on the top-spec model.

The RSV4 R is powered by an almost identical 999cc, 65-degree, V4 engine which pumps out 180 horsepower @ 12,500 rpm, and 85 lb-ft of torque at 10,000 rpm. The bike uses the same high-tech computer controlled ride-by-wire system with three separate performance settings as the RSV4 Factory. The only difference in the engine department is the use aluminium instead of magnesium for items like the engine casing and clutch cover.

The chassis of the RSV4 R is nonadjustable for swingarm pivot point, steering head angle and the engine position cannot be adjusted - unlike the Factory. The wheels are also different, and are again aluminium instead of magnesium.

The bodywork of the RSV4 R is identical in style and design to the RSV4 Factory, but is formed from conventional reinforced plastics instead of carbon fibre.

The final downgrade for the RSV4 R is a new suspension system which replaces the racing-specification Ohlins setup with a combination of 43mm Showa forks up front and a Sachs monoshock at the rear. The suspension is still adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.

The Aprilia RSV4 R is available in either a white with black color scheme, or an all black coloring. Either way it looks absolutely fantastic.
