This success adds to the victories achieved last season when the Aprilia RSV4 Factory won all the comparisons conducted by the most authoritative publications in the sector in every corner of the globe, on different tracks, with different riders and tyres. "It's difficult not to fall in love with this bike" was the final word from Motociclismo. The comments from the riders who took turns astride the RSV4 were just as positive.
"It has a stratospheric chassis. It's exceptional going into turns", "Incredible! It lets you accelerate where you wouldn't even dream of doing so with others", "An incredibly fine tuned electronics package" were just some of the statements made by the testers at the end of the day.
