Aprilia RSV4 RF 2015

Aprilia RSV4 RF 2015

The new RSV4 will make riders happy who have always ridden supersport bikes and love this category. Up-and-coming 600cc riders will appreciate it and even former 250cc riders will still find its handling beguiling. It was born in Aprilia's racing department and has been fine-tuned there for 2015. It is now easier to ride than before. But it is hard at the limit, especially when it comes to stability. Experienced riders get the bike into trouble on corner exits, rookies probably only at top speed on long straights. Its chassis is very radical for country roads, and on bad asphalt it gets restless on the saddle. An electronic chassis could help, but that is not installed on the Aprilia. But riding only on the racetrack wouldn't be right either. The RSV4 may be old in terms of design, but it is still incredibly beautiful. Anyone who rides it is considered a connoisseur and a hero in front of the ice cream parlour, and that hasn't changed in 2015. At the regulars' table, you don't have to report that it's lighter now than it used to be.

Great handling on corner entry and in turns

high cornering speed possible

compact and race-ready chassis

high-quality chassis

great timeless look.

Stability in the braking zone and when accelerating out at the limit
