    Base RSV4 pics!

    Found two so far...still searching as I have a feeling there are more Tuono pics in there as well. Followed the lead provided by Gabro's posted photos on the new Tuono.

    Clearly it's the base model as there's no Ohlins front.

    Thanks for posting...

    Keep 'em coming...

    Seems that Aprilia has several new bikes ready for this Autumn...

    Super Michel!

    That's what I was longing to see. I really dig that all black look (Rugby fans here?).
    And boy, the Tuono looks promising too! Decisions, decisions...

    Ciao,
    Michel

    And since we're at it, what do you guys think will be the main differences between Factory and R versions. Here is what I'd bet on:

    Showa suspension instead of Ohlins (as already seen on pixs)
    No chassis adjustment possible
    No variable length intake (fixed/tuned for more low end
    Ride by wire updated (smoother T mode?)
    Heavier wheels
    Different colors
    Sensors for future optional traction control?

    Ciao,
    Michel

    I would bet:

    No Carbon parts
    Brembo P4 (instead of Monoblocks)
    Showa suspension instead of Ohlins (as already seen on pixs)
    No chassis adjustment possible
    Ride by wire updated (smoother T mode?)
    casted Heavier wheels
    Different colors (black/black, white?)

    Sensors for future optional traction control?
    This would be an upgrade as it is at the moment.
    (But Aprilia hasnīt released the Software-code till now...)

    Cheers

    I'm surprised by them running Showas as opposed to Ohlins fronts (considering they did Ohlins / Sachs on rsv / rsv factory)

    The 04 and 05 Standard RSV were on Showa forks and Sachs rear shocks.

    The Ohlins forks came on the 2006 (Euro) / 2007 N.A. Standard RSV with the Sachs rear shocks.

    More importantly, the 1198 base doesn't have Ohlins either.

    It seems that more pics are starting to surface as regards the stock bike. These are some I found today.

    It confirms the Showa kit, heavier wheels, and different color schemes. Notice the bike in the background with the red tail piece and the gold rims.

    Just in passing, would anyone want to see the RSV4 in the Bol d'Or paint-scheme?

    yeah, except the purple.

    I saw a Bol d`Or RSV on Egay with black instead of the purple parts - that looked great

    I would.

    Bike in the background with gold rims = possible Biaggi rep?
