Noale manufacturer Aprilia has brought the new 2021 RSV4. Back in November 2020, the new RSV4 was caught lurking in public parking.

The new RSV4 takes its inspiration from its new young sibling RS 660.


Aprilia has not made any large change to the new model; however, they are prominent and.


Top among them is an increase in the displacement from 1,077cc to 1099cc. However, the engine remains the same 65 ° V-shaped four-cylinder with unique power and characteristics.

As expected, the new RSV4 now aligns with the Euro5 norms; additionally, we see a new exhaust. The power remains the same, which is 217hp when compared to the outgoing RSV4 1100 Factory.

There is an improvement in ergonomics thanks to the new tank and the new saddle that allow perfect integration of the rider into the fairing, more space onboard and a more natural riding position. 

As it takes inspiration from its younger sibling RS 660, we see new LED headlight with the DRL light.

Besides, the electrical controls are more intuitive, and the new TFT instrumentation is extensive. 

And thanks to the new Marelli 11MP control unit, the electronic management with full Ride-by-Wire throttle control is even improved.

Further, it comes with a new swingarm, lighter and reinforced with a lower brace and built-in wings.

Factory variant includes forged aluminium rims, the Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension system and Brembo Stylema brake callipers.

RSV4 is available in Dark Losail colour, while RSV4 Factory has Aprilia Black and Lava Red colours.

The price is still under the wrap. Expect some rise in the price as Aprilia has some goodies in the new 2021 RSV4.

However, even though there are very few changes, Aprilia has done some commendable job to bring the new RSV4 on the motorcycle scene.

We are looking forward to taking the new RSV4 on the spin.
