First released in 1999, the RSV Mille marked Aprilia’s first foray into the big-bore superbike market. The model was well-received, touted for being exotic yet still more affordable than Ducati’s 996, while offering reliability more on par with V-Twins like Honda’s RC51 or Suzuki’s TL1000R. Drawing from experience born out of the Italian firm’s race program — specifically its 250 GP machines — Aprilia bestowed the V-Twin literbike with an array of trick competition-derived features like its box-section aluminum-alloy twin-spar frame and double banana swingarm.

Powering the Mille was a liquid-cooled, 997cc, four-stroke, 60-degree, longitudinal, V-Twin with double overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, and electronic fuel injection. Produced by Austrian engine outfit, Rotax, the Mille’s mill made a claimed 130 hp at 9,500 rpm and 74 ft-lbs of torque at 5,500 rpm. The motor was also markedly more reliable than that of Aprilia’s Italian competitors. To lessen the 60-degree twin’s proclivity for immense vibration — especially when nearing its 170+ mph top speed — the RSV’s engine utilized an Anti-Vibration Double Countershaft system.

Produced from 1999 through 2003, the RSV Mille was offered in three variants; the base model, the homologation special SP version (or Sport Production); and the R-spec. The R-spec got upgraded OZ Racing forged aluminum rims, a shorter subframe, carbon fiber fenders, and the standard 43mm Showa fork and Sachs mono-shock were replaced by top-shelf Ohlins units. Braking duties went to dual 320mm discs pinched by four-pot calipers.

This example is VIN: ZD4MEE011YS000229. The seller acquired it in 2016 from a private party in Florida.

During his ownership, the seller has covered 2 miles. The odometer shows 7,953 miles.

The seller acquired this and several other motorcycles with the intent of exporting them to a Caribbean island to create a motorcycle museum. “Those plans were cancelled after Hurricane Dorian hit the Caribbean in 2019.”

Maintenance:
After purchasing it, we did an extensive service at Two Wheels World in Pompano Beach, FL, a Ducati Triumph dealer. The service included mounting new Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tires (still new and unridden), overhauling the Ohlins forks with new seals and OEM fluid, brake fluid change, new Brembo rear brake master cylinder, side stand switch replacement, and an oil change. Since then we change the oil with full synthetic 15W50 once every two years, since the motorcycle is not ridden. We have the receipt from October 2017, for a total of $1302.21..”

The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. “It starts right up and we rode it around the parking lot to make sure it runs, shifts, and brakes properly.”

Modifications:
It has the optional Aprilia titanium exhaust system.

Tinted windshield.

Aprilia-branded tank protector and rear seat protector.

Frame sliders, aftermarket foot pegs, swingarm spools.

Aftermarket grips, gold bolts under tank.

Miscellaneous stickers on the belly pan.
