Thirty years have passed since the first Aprilia world title in the World Championship and the Noale manufacturer wanted to celebrate it with a highly exclusive and performing edition of its super sports car. This is how the Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta was born, which was developed directly by the Racing Department and will be built in just one hundred units that can be purchased online at the price of 50,000 euros + VAT. According to Aprilia it is the fastest RSV4 ever made – obviously excluding racing ones – using technologies never before so close to those used in MotoGP in terms of materials, components, electronics, attention to detail and above all aerodynamics. All parts of the carbon fairing are made by PAN Compositi with the same procedures used in MotoGP, incorporating both the front and rear appendages positioned on the tail.
Furthermore, the RSV4 XTrenta is the first motorcycle in the world to mount the “under wing” on the swingarm, the lower wing that in MotoGP is known as a “spoon”. The result of this new configuration is that downforce increases by 25% and drag decreases by 4%.
Speaking instead of the engine, the compression ratio has increased, there are a new exhaust (titanium and carbon) made by SC Project and a Sprint Filter air filter that uses materials with MotoGP specification, while the water and oil radiators are Taleo Tecnoracing derived from Superbike. The result is 230 HP of power managed by a Magneti Marelli control unit with specific calibration and a PBR branded titanium crown. The electronic suite is controlled by the JetPrime racing push-button panel, while the accessories include footpegs, handlebar levers and CNC by Spider fuel cap.
From a cycling point of view, here are the Ohlins suspensions modified by Aprilia MotoGP technicians together with Andreani. The billet steering plate is exclusive to Aprilia Racing. The braking system is the top available on the market, under the Brembo brand, composed at the front of monobloc calipers machined from solid GP4-MS and 330 mm T-drive discs. The Marchesini forged magnesium rims fit Pirelli Diablo SBK slick tires with 120/70 and 200/65 sizes, with SC-1 front and SC-X rear compound. Finally, the livery of the new Aprilia RSV4 XTrenta, used by Lorenzo Savadori in the Austrian GP, represents a contemporary interpretation of what Aprilia wore when it won its first world title in 1992, in the 125 class.
