This one-off JPS-edition RSV Factory looks fabulous!!

Harking back to the days of tobacco sponsorship and the glory days of F1 racing in the 1970s and ’80s, the black-and-gold John Player Special colour scheme was also seen on the rotary-engined Norton F1 in the early-1990s. And apparently we aren’t the only ones who loved that super-cool JPS paintjob – DG Company, a Piaggio shop based in Tokyo, have come up with the Aprilia RSV4 Factory that you see here, painted in those evocative JPS colours. We love it!

The bike looks good and that Aprilia V4 sounds awesome...

...and JPS cigarettes were pretty special too, back in the '70s!

That SOOOO nearly works. Black frame, and move some of the bloody silly extra graphics Aprilia and RSV 4 from the fairing panel, lose the gold stripe from above the headlight and raise the lower stripe to more closely follow the underside of the light and the upper fairing panel and its a winner, not a dinner...
