Aprilia reveals 2 twins
Aprilia is to reveal two new twins at the Paris Bike Show – the RXV 450 enduro and the SXV supermoto.
Both bikes use the 450cc 77-degree V-twin the firm has been working on for the last two years. It is the first time the engines have seen the light of day in production bikes.
They make around 65bhp and more powerful 550cc versions are on their way.
They have alloy and steel trellis frames.
The SXV carries 180-section rear rubber (compared to the RXV’s 140-section). It gets a bigger front disc brake, too.
Expect to pay around £6400 for the supermoto and £6000 for the enduro. Both bikes were revealed in the September 28 issue of MCN - where you can read more details.
