Scheduled for Saturday, May 30, at noon at the Aprilia Racing transporter, the U.S. premiere will also be highlighted by the appearance of Aprilia Racing’s World Superbike team of Max Biaggi and Shinya Nakano.

Designed and built with the same philosophy adopted by Aprilia’s racing division, the RSV 4 Factory follows a completely innovative approach in its design and construction. Its narrow 999 cc V-four cylinder engine, the use of state-of-the-art electronics, lightweight frame and extreme compactness are only a few of the features that will make this newest Aprilia truly unique to customers in the U.S. and throughout the world.

“The level of excitement and anticipation for the RSV 4 Factory has been unprecedented,” said Aprilia USA Brand Manager Rick Panettieri. “With that in mind, we felt it would be ideal to unveil this new superbike at the only U.S. stop along the World Superbike tour, before a massive audience of truly passionate moto enthusiasts.”
