Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Originally 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. To lessen the 60-degree twin’s proclivity for immense vibration — especially when nearing its 170+ mph top speed — the RSV utilized an Anti-Vibration Double Countershaft system.

During the 2002 World Superbike season, Noriyuki Haga — also known as the the “Samurai of Slide” or “Nitro Nori” — placed fourth overall on his RSV Mille. Interestingly enough, even though his teammate Colin Edwards went on to win the WSBK championship that year, Aprilia nevertheless commemorated Haga’s efforts with a limited production run of the RSV Mille R. (Though, Colin Edwards later got a replica of his own.)

Just 300 Haga Replicas were built for the 2003 model year, 60 of which were sold in the US. Modifications from the standard Mille R included the paint job that emulated Haga’s WSBK racer, a blue Ergal triple clamp with the production number and Haga’s signature, blue OZ wheels, dual titanium Akrapovic exhausts, and EPROM fuel injection. Taken together, such upgrades yielded a 10 horsepower bump and a 6.6-pound weight reduction.
