MCN in 3D: Neil Hodgson riding the Ducati 1198

MCN, 04 July 2011 15:21

With the latest Aprilia RSV4 R APRC and Ducati 1198, electronic rider aids are becoming more affordable. Both machines are equipped with eight-stage traction control and a quickshifter, which saves you from having to manually shut the throttle when changing up through the gears, whilst the Aprilia takes it a stage further with anti-wheelie and launch control systems along with ...

Electronics for the people: Aprilia RSV4 R v Ducati 1198

MCN, 01 July 2011 10:33

With the price of Japanese superbikes edging ever closer to European 'exotica', the products of Italian factories such as Aprilia and Ducati are starting to appear better value than ever - especially these base model machines. Actually, it's a bit unfair to call the RSV4 R APRC or 1198 'base' models, because they're a long way from being basic. They ...

Aprilia RS4 125 gets quickshifter option

Dan Aspel, 25 May 2011 15:46

Aprilia's new four-stroke RS4 125 will come with an optional quickshifter priced at £99, the Italian firm has announced. Offering the "fun and involvement of split-second clutchless upshifting on a 125cc motorcycle", the move mimics the raft of WSB-grade technology available on the larger capacity RSV4 R APRC. With a liquid-cooled DOHC engine, USD forks, a quick-release pillion seat cowl, underslung ...

Aprilia RSV4 R gets tech goodies

Michael Neeves, 12 May 2011 15:22

This is undoubtedly the year of the RSV4. Aprilia's cutting-edge V4-engined superbike had its ups and downs when it was launched in 2009 but now the rough edges are smoothed off and it's a class-leading diamond. The all-singing, all-dancing £16,474 2011 RSV4 Factory APRC is already our superbike of the year, beating the BMW S1000RR. However, the new £14,124 RSV4 ...

Tuono V4R too ugly? French to the rescue!

Guy Procter, 27 April 2011 17:26

Fabulous new Aprilia Tuono V4R too ugly for you? Here come the French, with what they hope is the answer - a modified RSV4, dubbed the V4 Street. Arriving just after the launch of the Tuono V4R the V4 Street would be the perfect riposte, if its prolapsed air intakes and hat-wearing headlight didn’t achieve the opposite of what was ...

Aprilia recalls more RSV4s for engine swap

Andy Downes, 26 January 2010 16:25

New Aprilia RSV4 R on the road!

Michael Neeves, 25 December 2009 13:00

MCN raved about Aprilia’s new ‘budget’ RSV4R (if you can call £12,743 budget) when we rode it at Mugello in November. It was all going well until five of the launch bikes suffered terminal con rod failures.  Aprilia were keen to prove this mechanical hiccup was a one-off, so invited us back to Portugal to ride it again on the ...
