Aprilia drops standard RSV4

Aprilia has announced that only its flagship RSV4 RF will be coming to the UK, meaning that the standard RSV4 won’t be available to domestic buyers.

The move highlights Aprilia’s difficulty in shifting the RSV4, which despite its WSBK titles and domination in UK media group tests, has failed to sell in big numbers.

Aprilia has given the bike an extensive overhaul, adding Ohlins suspension, lightweight forged aluminium wheels, uprated APRC electronics, an enhanced V4 engine and a special ‘Superpole’ paint scheme that honours Aprilia’s racing successes, but that isn’t likely to be enough to tempt new buyers, especially as the RSV4 RF costs £18,134 OTR.
