2011 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE First Look

The system can also be adjusted on the fly via a toggle on the left handlebar and does so instantaneously, giving the rider the ability to use multiple different settings during a single lap if so desired. The sophisticated system runs in conjunction with the ride-by-wire throttle that the RSV4 Factory already has as standard to not only be able to reduce torque when the rear wheel spins but also let the rider control the exact amount of rear tire slippage on corner exit. This advanced electronics system features eight different traction control settings and is called ATC (Aprilia Traction Control). It's a self adjusting electronics system that utilizes wheel speed sensors and a host of other parameters to provide the rider with wheelie control, launch control and variable traction control that is able to adapt to different types of tires basically, it’s the TC system off of Max Biaggi’s world beating World Superbike, just adapted for street use.

And what does it do? Aprilia Performance Ride Control. So what does APRC stand for?  The boys from Noale, Italy, are back at it once again, this time updating the World Championship winning RSV4 Factory with a host of new goodies for 2011, introducing a new top of the line model dubbed the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE.
