Tyres for my Aprilia RSV4
The Aprilia RSV4 has superbike royalty in its genes. Now fine tuned with a better chassis, improved electronics and some internal engine refinements, the visceral thrill of the Aprilia RSV4's 65 degree V4 engine is more adrenaline-pumping than ever.
Built for Riders, Designed for Racers
With a completely redesigned front end, the most compact high performance sports bike on the market is better than ever. The perfect marriage of form and function, the Aprilia RSV4 is made for the road, but retains the aluminium double rail frame of its racing heritage, with features like adjustable headstock angles, rear end angles and swingarm pivots, allowing the rider to position the engine in the frame exactly where they want it.
Incomparable Power and Performance
Aprilia has overhauled the RSV4's engine, with more than 16 additional HP and a weight drop of 2.5kg, to produce the world's first production model with a narrow V4 engine. Powerful and innovative, the power to weight ratio of the radical new V4 engine takes it beyond the 200HP peak, while increasing the already generous torque.
Aprilia Performance Ride Control for the Ride of your Life
APRC gives you the ability to fine tune your ride with a series of bespoke settings, including traction and wheelie control and quick shift, plus the highly advanced 3 level ABS control. With levels dedicated to track riding, street performance and surfaces with poor grip, the settings combine with 3 different engine maps allowing the rider to customise their ride.
Innovation and Durability
The Aprilia RSV4 uses Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP as OEM tyres, thanks to their enhanced patch technology and tri-zone compound, for an optimal contact patch and superior handling and grip in any conditions. These tubeless tyres feature the same tread design as that used by the 2012 World Superstock 1000 champion and highlight the perfect synergy between the tyre carcass and Pirelli's innovative compounds.
Ask the Experts
If you're looking to replace the OEM tyres on your Aprilia RSV4 for a performance upgrade, then we suggest you stick with the OEM sizing (Front: 120/70 ZR 17 Rear: 200/55 ZR 17) and make sure you run your tyres in properly for the first 100 miles at the manufacturer's recommended pressure, as this can impact directly on fuel economy and handling performance.
