Aprilia have announced a ‘2012 SBK Championship commemorative special edition 2013 Aprilia RSV4 Factory,’ which will only be made available in North America. Created in honour of the factory racebike on which Max Biaggi won the 2012 World Superbikes championship, this special edition RSV4 features some unique features, including new, more advanced 3-level ABS from Bosch, Brembo M430 front brake calipers and front brake master cylinder, a more advanced form of the Aprilia’s traction control system (with different fuel mapping and a wheelie control system for racing use) and revised engine positioning for improved weight distribution.

Other unique bits on this special edition RSV4 include a special paintjob, a higher-performance exhaust system, friction reduction and improved crankcase ventilation for the V4 engine, 200/55 tyre for the 17-inch rear wheel, a redesigned 18.5-litre fuel tank taken directly from Aprilia’s SBK RSV4 race machines and new ‘satin finish’ headlight. Aprilia also claim that ergonomics have been improved and the special edition bike’s seat height has been lowered by 5mm. Prices for the bike will be announced on the 1st of February.
