Aprilia RSV 1000 R Pista
Aprilia's competition motorcycles have over 200 race wins to
their name and at the 2007 Bologna Motor Show, Aprilia have announced three new
models aimed at the growing band of trackday enthusiasts as well as for
Already available is the well received Aprilia RSV Tuono Racing, which comes as
a fully homologated road bike with an included additional full racing kit
(racing exhaust system, nose cone, belly pan, etc).
These three new bikes have a different emphasis and come as dedicated trackday
bikes with no horn, lights, indicators, etc., but with unrestricted exhausts,
light weight fairings, special racing colours schemes, and a host of other
racing goodies as standard. Then, if you so choose, you can buy an additional
road legal kit for the Aprilia RSVR 1000 and RS 125 (sorry, not the RS 250).
The Aprilia RSVR Factory 'Pista' is equipped with 102 dB Aprilia Racing Titanium
exhaust system capable of giving the already high performance Mille yet another
10 HP in the midrange and an extra 4 HP at maximum engine speed. An 8 kg weight
reduction is the first of a series of benefits introduced on this bike to make
track riding even more rewarding. No firm pricing is available yet, but we think
the cost will be around £10,300.
