Aprilia RXV 2008 model released!
Aprilia released pics and info of the new 2008 Aprilia RXV. Looks like they used a lot of info from enduro riders like Stefan Merriman to improve the handling & rideability of the RXV.
A nice improvement is the ability to switch between 2 different ignition maps on the ECU with the touch of a button. A "fullpower" map to use when conditions are optimal and another "soft" map with smoother engine characteristics for difficult terrain and low speed slippery tracks.
-New graphics & colors
-Dry weight reduced by 4kg
-Option to switch between ECU maps (fullspeed & soft)with the click of a button
-Better maintenance intervals: race use was 45 hours now 75 hours.
Normal use 75 hours becomes 150 hours.
-New sponge air filter
-Option of the newly developed Arrow exhaust
