The RSV4 gets a boost to 1078cc for 2019 thanks to a big­ger 81mm bore (up from 78), and longer fifth and sixth gear ra­tios. At peak power, Aprilia say 214bhp will course through the elec­tron­ics pack­age onto the tar­mac. They also say they’ve found a 10% torque boost across the rev range, and there’s now a ti­ta­nium Akrapovic ex­haust as stan­dard. The head­stock an­gle, swingarm pivot height and sus­pen­sion are ad­justable and Brembo Stylema calipers re­duce mass and in­crease brak­ing force, while the firm’s ex­cel­lent fourth-gen APRC elec­tron­ics pack­age ti­dies up all your mis­takes.
