If the Aprilia RSV4 RF You think it is an attractive motorcycle but with its 201 horsepower it does not meet your expectations, you are in luck. Rumors have started to spread about a possible power increase for the new model to come in 2016 to face the almighty Kawasaki ZX-10R.
The RSV4 RF already had many ballots to become, another year, one of the most competitive motorcycles in the Superbike category, but a new facelift according to Asphalt and Rubber would raise the power of the four cylinder in closed vee to figures close to 230 horses.
But the changes would not stop there, but you could almost buy a motorcycle with Aprilia directly from the racing department. WSBK or WSTK specifications, each with different specifications in terms of electronics, engine and chassis.
It is clear that you have to be competitive in WSBK and for this you have to make motorcycles that go on the market being competitive and it is still exciting to buy such a specialized motorcycle, with heart-stopping performance and developed by and for racing. After all, it is the best marketing for a sports bike, but does it make sense to continue this escalation of power to roll through traffic?
We already saw yesterday that any distraction can cost us dearly, so with the members of the superbike category in the middle of the war of powers and electronics we must be much more attentive.
Another issue to take into account would be the price, obviously the more specialization the higher the price, so I suppose that the 23,900 euros of the RSV4 RF they would be left behind. Of course, they can also do like Yamaha with the YZF-R1S and launch a more humane and affordable model.
In these cases the same doubt keeps haunting me: And Honda? What will the Japanese manufacturer be preparing for Nicky Hayden to be competitive in the medium term?
