Only 125 units of the RSV4 RF Limited Edition will be made.

The company has launched its new RSV4 RF Limited Edition in the United States and Canada. Only 125 units will be produced, and they are fitted with MotoGP-inspired winglets on its fairing. It was shown at the 2018 MotoGP World Championship. The RF LE is available in a special “Factory Works” colour scheme, which is inspired by the three colours of the Italian flag and the livery of the Aprilia AF1 250 ridden by Loris Reggiani rode in 1987 to get Aprilia's 294 world championship wins in Grand Prix racing.

The company first developed winglets for its RS-GP prototype used in the MotoGP World Championship and now it’s on a road-going super sport for the first time. The bike also features a Limited Edition logo and has its production number inscribed on the steering plate.

The same 999cc V4 engine which makes 201hp and 115Nm powers this bike and it comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quickshifter. As far as electronics are concerned, you get traction control, launch control, wheelie control and ABS. The bike also comes with fully-adjustable suspension from Öhlins as well as Brembo brakes.
