APRILIA RSV4 FACTORY AND TUONO V4 FACTORY SE-09 SBK

AT THE AUSTIN MOTOGP ROUND THE SPECIAL EDITION THAT CELEBRATES THE APRILIA RSV4’S FIRST LEGENDARY VICTORY MAKES ITS DÉBUT

THE ICONIC LIVERY OF MAX BIAGGI’S FIRST TRIUMPH IN BRNO IS BACK, THE WIN THAT MARKED THE BEGINNING OF A HISTORIC SPORTING STORY, AN ABSOLUTE DOMINATION COMPRISING SEVEN WORLD TITLES, 44 WINS, AND 102 PODIUMS

It was 26 July 2009 when Max Biaggi, on the Brno circuit, took the first unforgettable victory of the Aprilia RSV4 in the World Superbike Championship. No one could have known it at the time, but that was the first episode of a story that became legendary. It was the start of one of the most victorious stories ever for a single model in the most important factory derivative championship in the world, with an extraordinary collection of seven world titles (3 Rider and 4 Manufacturer), 44 wins and 102 podiums.

Today, Aprilia celebrates that historic day for the brand by bringing back the iconic livery symbolic of the RSV4’s spectacular sporting début on the crowning jewel of the V4 range: the superbike RSV4 Factory and the hypernaked Tuono V4 Factory. In this special version, RSV4 Factory and Tuono V4 Factory also come standard with carbon front brake air intakes and with a carbon front mudguard. The progressive numbering of the model appears on the fuel tank.

This is how the SE-09 SBK special numbered edition is born, unveiled for the first time in public during the weekend of the MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

It was the Aprilia Racing factory riders, Aleix Espargaró and Maverick Viñales, currently protagonists in the top world motorcycling championship astride the RS-GP prototypes from Noale, who christened the RSV4 Factory and the Tuono V4 Factory in this new, exciting, and evocative version.

The Aprilia V4 Factory SE-09 SBK machines stand out for their livery dominated by black with the characteristic red and white trim on the top fairing, lug, fuel tank, and tail fairing, exactly like the RSV4 that astonished the world at its début on the WSBK stage. An unmistakable mix in its linear simplicity, which brings the brand from Noale and its legendary sporting history to the mind of any motorcycling enthusiast.
