When it comes to GP racing, the name Aprilia is no stranger as they won their first-ever road racing title 30 years ago with Italian rider Alessandro Gramigni. Since then, Aprilia has been a staple in GP championships, winning numerous titles in Superbike World Championship (WSBK) and just recently in MotoGP with Aleix Espargaro.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Aprilia’s first GP victory, the company proudly presents the limited-edition, 230 horsepower, 166-kilogram RSV4 XTrenta.

According to Aprilia, the “RSV4 XTrenta is made by the Noale Racing Department by exploiting technologies never before so close to those used in MotoGP in terms of materials, components, electronics, attention to detail and above all aerodynamics, a sector which has become of fundamental importance in recent years and in which Aprilia Racing has shown itself to be at the forefront with the RS-GP committed to the 2022 season.”

All the parts of the carbon fairing are made by PAN Compositi using the same processes used in MotoGP and incorporate both the newly designed front wings, capable of guaranteeing more load and at the same time less drag, and the brand new rear wings, on the tail. Additionally, according to Aprilia, the RSV4 XTrenta is the first bike in the world to mount the 'underwing' on the swingarm, which results in aerodynamic load increases by 25%, while reducing drag by 4%.

The performance of the Italian V4 is managed by a specially calibrated Magneti Marelli ECU, while the transmission features a PBR-branded titanium sprocket (another XTrenta exclusive). The RSV4 XTrenta's electronic suite is controlled by a JetPrime racing panel, while accessories include footpegs, handlebar levers, and a CNC fuel cap by Spider.

On the chassis side, the RSV4's rigorous chassis is refined with Ohlins suspension modified by Andreani in collaboration with Aprilia MotoGP engineers. The billet steering plate is exclusive to Aprilia Racing. The braking system is the top available on the market, Brembo branded, consisting of the front of GP4-MS billet monobloc calipers and 330mm T-drive discs.

The forged magnesium Marchesini M7R GENESI rims fit Pirelli Diablo SBK slick tires in sizes 120/70 and 200/65, with SC-1 compound front and SC-X compound rear. The wheel weight reduction is around 2 kg compared to the standard.

The livery of the new Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta, used by Lorenzo Savadori in the Austrian GP, represents a contemporary interpretation of the one Aprilia sported in 1992 in the 125cc MotoGP class, on the occasion of the first of the 54 world titles that make its palmarès one of the richest in motorcycling sport. The SRP of the RSV4 XTrenta is EUR 50,000 (excluding VAT) or roughly PHP 2,821,000. Only 100 RSV4 XTrenta units will be made by Aprilia worldwide.
