We review Aprilia's top-tier open-class superbike, the 2020 RSV4 1100 Factory.
Powering the Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory is a 65-degree, 1,078cc V-4 engine, which sees a 79cc bump in comparison to the racing-homologated RR model. That's thanks to the Noale manufacturer increasing the bore measurement by 3mm.
A pair of top-shelf Brembo Stylema calipers clamping to 330mm discs quickly bring this Aprilia to a halt, with great feel at the brake lever.
The Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory comes equipped with a 4.3-inch TFT dashboard, which includes a lap timer function for racetrack use.
