Aprilia RSV4 RR Overview
A cheaper alternative to the RS4 RF, the RR appeals to those looking for a top sports bike on a more of a budget, although the price stands at £15,599. It has to be said however, this bike is great value for a top sports bike, working a better deal than the similar Panigale V4, YZF-R1 and Fireblade.
In terms of appearance, the RR may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Though it has to be said, the red wheels along with the matt black or grey body give the machine a classy look. The addition of the stickers may be a bit too far for some, although we feel this just adds to the sporty feel of the RR.
There are many similarities between the RR and RF, including the same engine, wet weight, frame and electronics. So what’s the difference? Sachs units have replaced the RF’s Öhlins NIX30 forks and an Öhlins TTX36 shock, which is a sufficient alternative for most riders, especially when considering the £4,400 price difference between the RR and RF. Another difference is the RF’s five Y-spokes, which have been replaced by three cast alloy spokes on the RR. The RF’s Aprilia V4-MP multimedia platform can easily be fitted to the RR for a price of £250 which we believe to be a fair price for the upgrade.
