2010 Aprilia RSV4 Factory Track Test (video)


by Pascal Bastien ,

It leaves us wanting, no needing one
The race-bred, street friendly 2010 Aprilia RSV4 Factory is quite the track day performer – sporty, stylish, compact and efficient. A true beast on track, it makes for memorable lapping sessions once you’ve learned how to use it properly – at tall order for sure. Those who crave sophisticated sportbikes will fall in love with its mind-blowing components, fit and finish, while hardcore thrill-seekers will revel in the adrenaline-pumping, goose bump-inducing performance. At $23,395, the RSV4 Factory is arguably worth every penny.

Imagine those two eyes fixated on your back and determined to get by you - a question of honour for the Roman Emperor! (Photo: Aprilia)

Flawlessly effective frame, brakes and suspension
High-quality components, fit and finish
Wicked style and sound effects
Less expensive than comparable Euro superbikes

Tricky throttle modulation at lower revs
Wheelie-prone at full throttle
A lot of bike for a lot of money
