All those who’ve been waiting for the awesome new V4-powered Aprilia RSV4, rejoice – the company has announced prices for the bike, which will now be available at Aprilia dealerships in Europe. The RSV4 Factory comes with a list price of 20,000 euros (US$26,375) – a bit expensive when you consider the fact that a Ducati 1198S costs about US$22,000.

Like some other litre-class superbikes, the RSV4 gives its riders three modes to choose from – the track mode liberates the full, 180-horsepower fury of that high-tech Aprilia V4, sport mode softens the power delivery in the first three gears and the street mode restricts power to 140bhp.

The Aprilia RSV4 has been designed by Miguel Galluzzi (the man who did the original Ducati Monster), who now heads Aprilia’s design department. The bike is being raced in the 2009 World Superbikes series, with ex-MotoGP men Max Biaggi and Shinya Nakano riding for Aprilia this year.

Damn cool, even if it is more expensive than a 1198S!
