2010 APRILIA RSV4 R BUDGET SUPERBIKE vs FACTORY

2010 APRILIA RSV4 R BUDGET SUPERBIKE vs FACTORY
Mr Biaggi agrees The 2010 RSV4 R makes do with cheaper components and less adjustability, but is as powerful and looks just as cool as the more expensive Factory version. Even the parts being down grade version, RSV4 R still got a kick to compare others superbikes. with clean , cool shape and simple decal design will attract riders to test this affordable .

have announced the 2010 RSV4 R, a of the RSV4 Factory. Instead of Ohlins suspension, the RSV4 R gets a Showa fork and , its 60-degree makes do with aluminium parts instead of the Factory’s magnesium bits, and the isn’t adjustable for swingarm pivot point, steering head angle and engine position.

what differences between RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R?

Still, the significantly cheaper RSV4 R’s Showa/Sachs suspension is fully adjustable and the engine still produces 180bhp (though we suspect it may not be able to rev as high and/or as quickly as the RSV4 Factory’s engine). Also, with its ride-by-wire electronics, the bike still has three ride modes – Race, Sport and Road – for optimised power delivery for whatever conditions you might encounter.

If you can live with plastic instead of carbonfibre trim, aluminium instead of forged magnesium wheels and a bit more weight (the R weighs 184kg, about five kilos more than the Factory), the RSV4 R just might be the for you with at least 20% less expensive than the Factory

The RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R follow in the mold of the RSV 1000 R range; the Factory is the range-topping carbon, magnesium and Ohlins-equipped model sold in order to homologate the SBK racers, while the R is fitted with more realistic components and priced to sell in large numbers.

While the R retains the Factory’s basic frame and engine, both of those are modified to lower costs. The R’s engine ditches the expensive and lightweight magnesium engine covers in favor of aluminum items, while the has lost its ability to adjust the swingarm pivot point, the steering head angle and the engine’s position.

Still present is the fly-by-wire throttle and its three switchable power delivery modes. “Race” offers the full 180bhp and 115lb/ft of torque, “Sport” delivers full power but limits torque in the first three gears and “Road” reduces power to 140bhp and also limits torque throughout the rev range and in all gears.

you can choose between black or white on the plastic panels. The cohesive finishes of the R — mostly silver or black mechanical components — actually look better than the confused look created by the magnesium and gold parts and red/black paint on the Factory.

RSV4 R Price
The biggest goal that pursued with this new approach towards the RSV concept was to be able to offer the bike for under $20K and the $19,600 MSRP says mission accomplished.

The RSV4 R has been priced at £12,449 in the UK, £2,550 cheaper than the bells-and-whistles RSV4 Factory. No price for either bike has yet to be announced for the New World. Should you save some money and go for the cheaper model? This photo will help you decide, it highlights the changes. Full specs below.

The bike is expected to cost about £11,800-12,400 in the UK, which would be around 20-24% cheaper than the higher-spec Factory version.
