Year: 2010
Factory Special

The RSV4 Factory is powered by Aprilia’s first production four-cylinder engine, and makes a fantastic noise (and 178bhp!). The 2011 Factory has traction and launch controls, but the earlier model had huge power and nothing to tame it apart from a couple of throttle maps and Ohlins suspension. The 2010 felt exciting and dangerous compared to BMW's relatively sanitized S1000RR.
