The Aprilia Factory Works program has always been an impressive part of the Noale company’s lineup, and it offers the 250hp Aprilia RSV4 R FW-GP to any mere mortal who can afford such a thing.

For those of us who have to work for a living, perhaps the Superstock version of the Aprilia RSV4 RF factory works bike is enough to suffice for our track and racing needs. It makes 215hp at the crank, is totally race legal, is hand-built by factory race technicians in Italy, and oh…IT COMES WITH WINGLETS.

Aprilia prefers the term “aerodynamic appendages” in its press release, but we all know what they are talking about. Developed by Aprilia Racing as part of the Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP bike program, now you too can benefit from GP-level aerodynamics.

Other trick pieces in the Aprilia RSV4 SSTK1 kit from the Factory Works program includes new pistons, different heads, a full racing exhaust, and regenerated control unit — all of which is good for the claimed 215hp peak horsepower figure.

Weight savings are also on order for the day, to the tune of a staggering 22 lbs on the SSTK1 package. This comes by using a lithium-ion battery, new fuel tank, the previously mentioned full exhaust system, along with carbon and aluminum pieces throughout the bike.

If you have the means, we highly recommend it. It’s so choice.
