The new engine is matched by a rigorous chassis: the aluminum frame makes the Aprilia RS 457 unique among bikes in its segment and brings with it all the design expertise honed over decades of track wins. The crankcase is positioned as a load-bearing element, mirroring the approach of the RS 660, which guarantees weight containment, dynamic qualities and absolute riding pleasure.
The Aprilia RS 457 speaks to those who want to ride a motorbike that leverages all the historical knowledge of a true sports bike. In simple words: the best power-to-weight ratio.
- The Aprilia RS 457 is powered by a state-of-the art, liquid-cooled parallel twin-cylinder engine, with double overhead camshaft and four valves per cylinder, delivering 47 horsepower. Beyond just power, the motorcycle's weight is equally
impressive, with a dry weight of 350 lbs.
- The power-to-weight ratio of the Aprilia RS 457 is unmatched, a testament to the designers' unwavering pursuit of maximum performance.
- The new engine is seamlessly integrated with a rigid aluminum frame, setting the RS 457 apart in its segment. Drawing on Aprilia's decades of expertise accumulated through victories on racetracks worldwide, the crankcase is positioned as a load-bearing element, mirroring the approach used in the RS 660. This ensures low weight, exceptional dynamics, and the riding pleasure for which Aprilia is renowned.
- The 41 mm front fork provides 120 mm of travel and the rear monoshock, working in tandem with the steel swingarm, provides 130 mm of wheel travel, both offering preload adjustability.
- The braking system incorporates a 320 mm front disc with a ByBre radial-mount 4-piston caliper. At the rear, a 220 mm steel disc is paired with a ByBre caliper. Both wheels benefit from a two-channel ABS system with dual map settings, available for both wheels or exclusively for the front. The 17-inch sport rims accommodate 110/70 tires at the front and 150/60 at the rear, providing exceptional grip while preserving agility, a defining characteristic in the Aprilia RS family.
- The electronic equipment on the Aprilia RS 457 is unrivaled, catering to a diverse range of riders while remaining faithful to Aprilia's heritage. The Ride by Wire system, pioneered by Aprilia engineers, manages the engine mapping with three distinct riding modes that modulate power, torque delivery, and traction control. These features are adjustable across three levels. Additionally, a quickshifter (up and down) is available as an accessory for enhanced performance.
