New Aprilia RSV4 R on the road!

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 track, and for the first time, on the road.

Have Aprilia solved their reliability problems? What’s this beautiful V4 superbike actually like to ride in everyday conditions on ordinary roads? 

Check out MCN on January 6 for the world first road test.
