Aprilia RSV4-Quattro a new beginning


Recommended Posts

To all bikeys

 

Today was a special day, in which i rode my RSV4 Fact.home.I wish there were more people like me in time to come.

 

This thread is started to celebrate the experience of Aprilia's RSV4 bikes.

All readers (even if you are not a owner...YET) are welcomed, please feel free to share your experiences,reviews,opinions with regards to this amazing machine in light of respecting all individuals.So all could benefit.

 

Juz like V4 is a unique engine configuration, so is every single reader/individual unique and special, to be hold in high esteem.

 

More bout rsv4 to come later!!!

Does it get as hot as everyone talks about?

 

 

 

Yes, it does get hot,when at city traffic.Personally, i ride 80% expressway and 20% city to/fro work, is ok for me.

 

The heat is mild when moving in epxressway speed, but then you'll be so caught up with the metallic V4 deep tone growl from the exhaust (stock) ,accompanied by the air intake howl,topping up with pleasing noise of moving cams and chains.

 

What a delicious ride....

 

You can crack an egg on the aluminium main frame and expect it to be ready to be serve at the next traffic light, if you ride 80% city.Then again this is no city-intend bike:)

Hello from the Aprilia RS125 club! Hahaha

 

Aaaey, Hallo! RS125 bikers,Whatzup!

 

Aprilia would not have a stable road holding RSV4 machine today, if not for the rich fundamental experiences in chasis and engine design which they have keenly tapped from countless successful 125,250s,1000cc(rotax V-twin) championships man...

 

stay around bro.

Congrats, must indeed be a very Special feeling for you :cheers:

 

 

Ziilion thanks bro!The bike feels like an sculpture art.

 

It seems that the Noala engrs are really obsessed with deails on the factory.From the fairing screws to the alu swing arm,they are printed and cast with its marque

 

Their perversion did not even spare the ignition key's blade which the cut is done on its surface.Was this done on any other bike key's?(forgive for my swakuness)

 

BUT... the black sheep award goes to the mediocre looking clutch and brake levers.they must go someday.

Yes, it seems a far reach to the GND, my suspect is the seat is slightly wide.This "wide" gives great support/rest to the thighs, when the feet are on the footpegs(on the move)..I'm 1.75m

 

Wait till you ride, and do a hard immediate front brake,causing rider to slide toward the tank

I promise you the balls will integrate with the tank as one:cheeky:

Same height as me bro..

 

But the seat cutting is abit sharper than my current 750..The seat material is like corbin kind of material right?? Seems to be very good doing hang off on the track..

 

Too bad i dont have that kind of moolas to spend on getting it..

subjective.No (be in jeans). still running-in with stock exhaust . engine comes up to 105dgeC easily at lights.

 

Sounds abt normal for most c2 bikes isnt it lol.. my blade feels abt the same 101 to 105 degreeC

The RR on my Fireblade represents "Race Replica"

Got some seat time on the RSV4 this morning,though the road is a little damp,the air is cool and nice.

Fire-up the cylinders and decided to switch to the T mapping (had been with S mapping ) , still running in though.

 

Boy...the T mapping a really fun. Intuitively, it felt more reponsive (bike willing to surge forward with throttle input), better low rpm torque reminds me of the s4rs i used to be on.

 

vibration could be felt from the clip-ons, not too obtrusive but enough to be felt that the engine is singing below you.if you ride with normal street gloves, should be just right, to provide some damping effect.

 

On certain stretch of road, was abit too liberal with the throttle, gain speed but suddenly a pick-up decided to cut in-front of me (as usual without signalling), the brembos were called into duty, first reaction, break hard on the rear, the 190 tyre losses grip and the bike fish tailed....

within split seconds it felt, the rear gain back traction and the suspension/chasis just simple regain the bike's composure.the rsv4 just does it thing.

 

lookin forward to ride it again.

saw one the other day near a traffic light turning into my house.... i stupidly thought my SP could out rev this monster.... when the light turned green, the RSV4 sped off even before i had released my clutch.... felt damn stupid after that... hahahhahahhaha....

 

really beautiful bike with an amazing engine sound....

Cheap + fast = no good

Cheap + good = not fast

Good + fast = not cheap

Congrates, superb choice.What was yourlast bike?

 

No worries,italian or japanese, they are still fantastic machines that bring enjoyment and need care.

At least is not the other Italian brethen,which requires scheduled $$$ timing belt replacement.Honda and aprilia still stick to the reliable metal chain.

 

Pls stay with the original exhaust for a while, because the V4 rumble is sweetly tuned out of Miguel Galuzzi's deisgn.

 

We are all learning togather, share your expiriences too,man!
