THANKS RSV1000!

What the mighty Aprilia has given usé

AN ITAL­IAN WSB RI­VAL

The RSV en­tered WSB in 1999, plac­ing third with Troy Corser in 2000, fourth in 2001 and fourth again with Nori Haga in 2002.

SEXY SU­PER­BIKES…

The first RSV was good. The 1999 R with Öh­lins and light­ened parts was bet­ter while the lim­ited-edi­tion WSB SP, with a spe­cial short-stroke mo­tor and just 150 built is true nir­vana.

…AND MAD SU­PER-NAKEDS

Most su­per-nakeds are de­tuned. Not the 2003 Tuono 1000, to this day one of the mad­dest, most wheelie-pop­ping nakeds ever.

… AND ONE OF THE WEIRD­EST

The RSV was meant to start a dy­nasty. Sadly, with off­spring like the Falco, Caponord and Fu­tura, that never hap­pened.
