December 21, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Out of the World Superbike experience the Aprilia Racing accessories range dedicated to the RSV4 sport bike is born. The best of the most victorious Racing Division in Europe is available to the most demanding enthusiasts.
45 world championships, 277 victories in Moto GP and the latest triumphant season with the conquest of a double world title in WSBK are all the fruit of the technological skill and passion for sport which breathes life into the Aprilia Racing Division.
Now, from these extraordinary capabilities, comes the Racing accessories catalogue dedicated to the Aprilia RSV4, the V-engine four-cylinder which has redefined the sport bike standards both on the road and on the track.
The Aprilia Racing Parts range offers parts for the chassis, the control electronics and engine management and is designed for the entire RSV4 family: from the brand new Factory APRC SE version to the Factory and R versions. It has components which are exclusively for racing use, available for the hobby or sport public which intends to use all of the huge potential of the RSV4 to its maximum on the track.
The aluminium chassis of the RSV4 is the most refined and efficient available in the supersports segment today. The already available vast possibilities for adjustment are now increased even more with the steering bushing kit, which allows the range to be adjusted +/- 1.5/3/4.5 mm and the steering axis inclination +/- 0.35°. The exceptional dynamics of the RSV4 can be further improved with 7-spoke 16.5″ forged magnesium Marchesini wheel rims – to mount racing tyres – which include bearings, spacers and valves.
The suspension, also characterised by an obsessive attention to detail, can take advantage of the Aprilia Racing accessories range for the fork: the upgrade offers pressurised FG399 Ohlins Racing cartridges for the FG616 standard fork.
A CNC processed fork plate derived directly from Superbike is also able, on the same level as the semi-handlebars with titanium screws. The lightweight and prestigious metal is also utilised for the screw kit and the frame protector guards.
Finally, for the Brembo braking system, racing pads are available with Z04 sintered mix specifically for use on the track.
The available accessories for the electronics package push the bike’s management and control developments to the maximum.
Already particularly advanced on the standard product, especially in the new Factory APRC SE version, they can be implemented with the APX step1 control unit with a racing wiring harness, completely programmable via PC using ARES software (Aprilia Racing Engine management) which allows Traction Control operation, engine brake and anti Wheeling to be adjusted as well as allowing these parameters to be managed point by point along the curves on the circuit and the APX step2 control unit which adds telemetry management of a vast range of sensors through the Aprilia Data Viewer software.
The Aprilia Racing accessories catalogue offers, for the extraordinary and exclusive narrow V four cylinder which equips and characterises the RSV4, high compression pistons (14:1) in forged and CNC processed aluminium complete with seal segments, which can be paired with the most powerful profile cam axis kits with gears and complete Akrapovic exhaust systems in titanium and carbon.
The engine package is completed by “trimmings” such as piping kits, CNC aluminium secondary drive cover kits, the oil sump and filter gasket kit and carbon crankcase guards.
