2014 Aprilia RSV4 R ABS, RSV4 Factory ABS unveiled at the EICMA
The 2014 Aprilia RSV4 R ABS and RSV4 Factory ABS!

Aprilia have unveiled the 2014 RSV4 R ABS and RSV4 Factory ABS at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. These new iterations of the earlier RSV4 benefit from revisions to the bike’s 65° V4, which now produces 184 horsepower and 117Nm of torque. The bikes also get an updated, multi-map 3-level ABS system that uses a Bosch 9MP ABS unit to work its magic. Of the three ABS levels, level 1 is track-focused, level 2 is for the street and level 3 is for when it’s raining.

The 2014 RSV4 R and RSV4 Factory ABS, with their dry weight of 181 kilos, continue with Aprilia’s self-calibrating APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) suite of electronics, which includes an 8-level traction control system, 3-level wheelie control system, launch control system with three settings, an electronic quick shift system which allows clutchless gear changes, and full ride-by-wire throttle control.

The new Aprilia RSV4 R and Factory ABS also get a new fuel tank, with capacity increased from 17 to 18.5 litres, modified side panels for improved ergonomics and new Brembo monobloc M430 radial-mount brake calipers at the front. In proper racebike style, the RSV4 Factory ABS even allows riders to adjust engine position in the bike’s chassis, something you’ll probably find useful if you’re the next Marc Marquez.

For 2014, the new Aprilia RSV4 R ABS will be available in matt black and red, while the RSV4 Factory ABS will only be available in black. Prices, TBA.
