“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC

In my review about the 2011 Aprilia Tuono, I mentioned about the revolutionary Aprilia APRC technology being borrowed onto the Tuono from the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE (only 350 of those being made). I was really very excited to know the features packed together in the APRC (Aprilia Performance Rider Control) -
  1. Aprilia Traction Control
  2. Aprilia Wheelie Control
  3. Aprilia Quick Shift
  4. above all Aprilia Launch Conrol
Akrapovic Complete Exhaust System for Aprilia Rsv4 Stls TIT Muffler

Well I've already discussed these when reviewing the Tuono, but still how do these technology work in actual track conditions? Do, the electronics interfere with the rider's experience? Well, read on!!

Before we start getting swept away by sheer track performance, let's have a loot at the Tech Specs

First glance through the specs, they are quite similar to the Tuono, but really there is much much more than it meets the eyes.

DYNO-BOOST Adjustable Performance Chip Aprilia RSV 4

The engine is more compact and is now equipped with improved cooling and lubricating systems. It not only produces mammoth mid range and a ballistic top end, it also sounds like the MotoGP symphony. Well what more can you ask from an engine, it not only gives you performance to die for, but also pleases your sensories. The motor also has variable length inlet trumpets and top of the line Ride-by-wire system. The motor is meant to go faster and safer.

Well I cannot describe more about the electronics load on this machine else I'm gonna switch to a state of trance. Watch it for yourself.

Overall, there's not a bolt that you need to change when you ride the bike on open roads, or on track. After the BMW S1000RR, the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC is probably the most radical liter class that has been released and in manners it's even better because all those electronics don't come in between rider and his ride, they just make them more efficient. Take for example the Aprilia Wheelie Control, it does not stop the bike from making wheelies, it just keeps the front wheel hovering a few inches above the ground. Innovation amalgamated with fun!!
