At last week’s International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California, Aprilia kicked off the North American trade show season by announcing two new limited-edition models for 2020. The individually numbered Aprilia RSV4 RR and Tuono RR will be available only in the US market, and limited to just 100 units each.

When Aprilia first released its iconic V4 platform back in 2008 with the RSV4, it made no bones about the fact that it was looking to score a World Superbike championship or two. It’s safe to say that the flagship superbike has fulfilled that mission statement and then some since its inception, winning three rider championships and four manufacturer championships in that time. Then the ever-popular naked Tuono got a complete redesign and joined the V4 platform series in 2012, transformed into what Aprilia calls “the first V4 naked bike.”

At the Long Beach show, Aprilia doubled down on both models’ popularity by announcing limited-edition models of the company’s most celebrated motorcycle platform. For 2020, exclusive to the United States market, Aprilia says both RSV4 RR and Tuono RR models will bear special livery to distinguish them.

Specifically, the 2020 limited-edition models reference Aprilia’s racing heritage with a dedicated “Misano” livery carrying the large Aprilia “A” logo on the front bodywork, which has been seen on the brand’s racebikes and the factory version model RSV4. Aprilia fans will recognize this historic “Misano” design as an acknowledgement of Aprilia Racing’s earliest championship successes, and a reference to Loris Reggiani’s victory in 1987 at the Misano circuit in Italy. Thatwin was the first for Aprilia in a championship class, and the precursor of things to come.

As the 2020 RSV4 RR and Tuono RR models both bear “championship-winning DNA,” both get the special race graphics as well as carbon fiber front fenders and lithium batteries as standard premium equipment. Also denoting the exclusivity of the bikes will be a final touch to appeal to collectors and enthusiasts alike—“Limited Edition” lettering and the unit number placed on the top triple clamp for the RSV4 RR, and on top of the fuel tank cover on the Tuono RR. Again, only 100 numbered 2020 RSV4 RR and 2020 Tuono RR Limited Edition models will be available May of 2020, and only in US dealerships.
