Horsepower remains at an impressive 217 at 13000 rpm, already hard to beat, but it now meets the rigid Euro 5 criteria and breaks the 305 km/h barrier at top speed. The new Magneti Marelli ECU 11MP control system and a lighter exhaust with reduced thermal inertia further contribute to lowering emissions.
Team work at its best
The RSV4 Factory sports the outstanding Öhlins Smart EC2.0 semi-active suspension system, which has been fine-tuned through a team effort involving both their engineers and the elite-squad from Noale. Tested on the toughest tracks including Imola and Mugello until both teams were completely satisfied with the results, the new and improved system delivers a significant improvement in both performance and that elusive, but hard to describe, riding “feeling”.
Suited to any riding style
The Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension system makes it a breeze to customise and calibrate the shock absorbers and fork, with a choice of semi-active and manual mode, both easy to activate via buttons on the handlebar. Further personalisation options come in the form of 3 maps that regulate the suspension in different ways.
