Aprilia has introduced a new super sports bike model called RS 457. Recently launched globally, Aprilia has unveiled its latest awesome sports offering, the RS457. This is the same bike that was recently seen testing in India. This bike has been seen many times during testing in India and abroad. Now that it’s been unveiled, we know everything about it.
The design idea of Aprilia RS457 is taken from RS660. If we talk about its design, it has a split LED headlight over which there is a small visor that is integrated into the front fairing. Then, there are small ducts with wing-like structures on the side fairings below the headlights. In comparison, the RC 390 gets an instrument cluster, full-LED lighting, lean-sensitive ABS, quick-shifter traction control system, and lean-sensitive ABS.
The Aprilia RS is powered by a 457cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled motor that makes 47bhp and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. For reference, the new KTM RC 390 has a 373cc single-cylinder that generates a max power of 42.9 bhp and a torque of 37 Nm.
Aprilia Bikes has yet to launch this bike in India. Once that happens, the RS 457’s rivals will be the KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300, TVS Apache RR 310, and the upcoming Yamaha YZF R3.
