Top 10 Super Awesome Italian Superbikes
Aprilia RSV4 Factory
Aprilia’s first motorcycle was a 50cc runabout; its current range-topper, the RSV4 Factory, sits at pretty much the exact opposite end of the performance spectrum. It packs a howling mad 1,000cc 65° V4 producing 180hp at 12,500 rpm. But all that power is useless if it can’t be put to the pavement. Fortunately, the RSV4 Factory also has some neat adjustability tricks up its sleeves, ranging from the position and angle of the headstock, to the height of the swingarm pin, and even the height of the engine within the frame. If that sounds like racing bike stuff, that’s because it is, and it means you can fine tune the bike to fit you and your riding style. Control freaks rejoice!
