Aprilia has announced two limited-edition models of its most celebrated motorcycle platforms. For 2020, exclusive to the United States market, Aprilia will release 100 individually numbered RSV4 RR and Tuono RR models.
The iconic V4 platform, first launched in 2008 with the RSV4, a model aimed at the World Superbike championship, of which it has won three Rider Championships, and four Manufacturer Championships since its introduction, quickly expanded in its capability, both in terms of the RSV4, but also as an update to the Aprilia brand Tuono model, introducing the first V4 naked bike in 2012.
The 2020 limited edition models take note from Aprilia’s racing heritage, with a more dedicated “Misano” livery, with the large Aprilia “A” logo, previously utilized among the brand’s race bikes and factory version model RSV4. Immediately recognizable to brand enthusiasts, the “Misano” design is an acknowledgement of Aprilia Racing’s earliest championship successes, as the inspiration is derived from the 1987 Loris Reggiani victory, the first for Aprilia in a championship class, at the Misano circuit in Italy. Available on the 2020 RSV4 RR and Tuono RR models, the motorcycles will receive carbon fibre front fenders and lithium batteries as standard premium equipment.
The last touch, for collectors and enthusiasts alike, is the indication of model exclusivity, with the “Limited Edition” individually numbered units – for the RSV4 RR acknowledged on the top triple clamp, and the Tuono RR on top of the fuel tank cover.
The 2020 RSV4 RR and Tuono RR Limited editions will be available from May in US Dealerships.
