RSV4-RR

Here in the UK in 2018

£15,599 with Sachs instead of Ohlins on the RF and cast wheels. It's the same engine and electric gizmos as the more expensive RF version.

That's very well priced IMO.

It's very industrial-looking.

Most of the new supersports are. There's a lot less plastic on the new bikes.

It's the matte paint more than anything.....always screams "unfinished" to me.

Same money as a FireBlade.

Wonder where people will spend there money.

Based model Blade with limited electronics or European exotica with stunning v4 and wsbk spec electronics.

Weirdly I think the safe bet Blade will out sell the Aprilla but it shouldn't. If Aprilla can sort there UK dealer network and parts availability the rsv4 would sell like hot cakes.

Great great bike sadly let down by poor aftercare

I bet Aprilia have introduced this to avoid having to discount the Factory version at the end of every year.

Get rid of the supercorsas for the average British person in British weather on British roads then it would be prefect!
