KTM RC 390-rivaling Aprilia RS 457 makes global debut
The RS 457 is powered by a 457cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 47 BHP
Aprilia has revealed a new super sports model, called the RS 457. It is the same bike that has been spotted testing in India in recent times.
The Aprilia RS 457 is a fully-faired bike that draws inspiration from the RS 660. It features dual LED headlamps with a short visor and clip-on handlebars at the front, a short tail section and an underbelly exhaust.
The RS 457 is powered by a 457cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 47 BHP, which puts it in the same league as the KTM RC 390. The engine is mated with a 6-speed gearbox. The bike is equipped with a ride-by-wire system and a quick shifter, which is optional.
The RS 457 features an upside-down front fork with a mono-shock at the rear. It gets disc brakes at both ends and rides on 17-inch wheels. Other features include a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, 3-stage traction control and ABS.
