Aprilia has now introduced limited-edition versions of the RSV4 Factory and the Tuono V4 Factory with a special Speed White livery. As the name suggests, the Speed White livery sports the white colour as its base, which brings out the bike's sporty character. In addition, the motorcycles get red accents on the alloy wheels as well as sports graphics that draws inspiration from the Aprilia RS-GP prototype from the 2023 MotoGP World Championship. It is important to note that these Aprilia bikes will be manufactured in limited numbers and will command premium pricing to maintain their exclusivity. Also, the limited-edition bikes with a special livery will be available only for a stipulated period across the globe, and that is from May to December 2023.
A few weeks before, the Italian manufacturer unveiled the RS 660 Trofeo for international markets. The Trofeo is based on the street-legal RS 660 platform and is meant for race use only.
