The Aprilia RS 457 has a waiting period of up to 2 months in India. The bike went on sale last year, with an ex-showroom price of Rs 4.10 lakh. Its competitive pricing boosted demand, resulting in a high number of bookings. According to industry reports, the motorcycle is quite in demand in South and West India. Aprilia is trying to meet rising demand by operating three shifts at its Baramati factory and producing approximately 50 units every day. 

In April, the Italian bikemaker announced prices for the parallel-twin bike's accessories, which include track and touring equipment like race brake pads, a front axle cover, and a tall windscreen. With a price tag of Rs 29,925, the electronic anti-theft assembly is the most expensive item on the list. Let's take a look at the key details of the bike.
