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 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: ZD4RPU0132S000265. The seller acquired the bike four years ago from “A friend raced down in Florida — she ended up selling me this beauty as a different piece to my collection.”

During her ownership, the seller has covered approximately 600 miles. The odometer shows 14,157 miles.

The seller reports that the bike has “all new fluids, a fresh air filter, and a new fuel pump.” Additionally, she notes that the battery has been replaced along with a “new chain and sprocket.”

“Husband is a mechanic and has been building bikes and cars for 30 years so bike has been well maintained. Garage kept for its whole life.”
