Aprilia begins its 2022 lineup with the updated RSV4 Factory that now features an Ultra Dark colourway.
The new colourway is set to meet a wider audience who seeks a darker and stealthier look, which adds excitement while riding the high-performance motorcycle.
However, no changes were made to its mechanics as the Noale Factory has already made a huge update to its flagship sportbike in 2021.
The RSV4 Factory gets a displacement bump from 1,077cc to 1,099cc and churns out even more peak power, 217hp @ 13,200rpm, while reducing its carbon emission to meet Euro 5 emission standards.
Aprilia also integrated the RSV4 bi-plane wings into the double-wall fairing that boosts engine cooling capabilities while optimizing its high-speed stability.
The RSV4 also gets a MotoGP-inspired swingarm that is now lighter and features a reinforced lower brace that helps improve stability and acceleration.
Last year, other upgrades included Ohlins Smart EC 2.0, a new LED headlight, a more prominent TFT display, and revamped ride-by-wire system.
