2012 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC Overview
As much as I love american muscle, i’m a big fan of the euro sportbikes. They’re fast, lightweight, and for the most part, relatively inexpensive…and Aprillia is no exception. They have produced some of the best looking bikes year after year, that also pack quite a punch.
Overall Aprillia produces a pretty impressive lineup of road bikes from the Mana, Dorsoduro, Shiver, RS, Tuono V4 to their flagship badass, no holds bar RSV4. And fortunately for us, the new 2012 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC is no slouch either. Lets take a quick look at this badboy, shall we?
