Another week, another limited edition motorcycle with Aprilia offering up the latest extra-special motorcycle in the form of the new RSV4 Factory APRC ABS SBK Special Edition.

Only available in North America, this new model is inspired by the title-winning ride of Max Biaggi after he stormed to victory in the 2012 World Superbike Series.

Something of an upgrade on the previous RSV4 Factory APRC ABS, this new edition features a Bosch three-level dual-channel ABS system along with M430 Brembo callipers.

The tank volume of the bike has also been increased to 18.5 litres, while the seat is 5mm lower than the previous model and the traction and wheelie control have both been reviewed along with the position of the engine.

Capable of achieving 181.4 hp and 86.3 lb-ft at 10,500 rpm, the bike is expected to roll up for sale come April and is sure to inspire plenty of champions to hit the road.
