Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC Carbon Special Edition is insanely lustworthy

The Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC Carbon Special Edition has a very, very long name, an equally long list of exotic, race-spec parts and full carbon-kevlar bodywork. We love it!

The good folks at Aprilia Australia weren’t, apparently, too happy with the stock RSV4 Factory, so they’ve gone ahead and created this – the RSV4 Factory APRC Carbon Special Edition, which is absolutely dripping in the best bits from from companies like Akrapovic, Brembo, Ohlins and Pirelli.

The limited edition RSV4 is fitted with a host of billet aluminium parts (rearsets, brake and clutch levers, handlebars and weights, rear stand pick up knobs…), full carbon-kevlar bodywork, tinted screen, high-performance Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, Ohlins TTX rear shock, fully adjustable fork and steering damper, Brembo gold series brakes with four-piston monobloc calipers at the front, and Pirelli Supercorsa SP tyres.

With 185 horsepower from its 999cc 65-degree V4, APRC electronics package (which includes traction control, wheelie control, launch control and a quick shifter) and 169-kilo dry weight, the stock RSV4 Factory is already one of the most impressive superbikes on the planet. The Aussie Carbon Special Edition just turns everything up by a few notches. We’re certain we can’t afford one but if you’re interested, you can send them an enquiry here
