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: ZD4MEE015YS000072.

The seller let a friend of his ride this bike and he unfortunately low sided it at a high rate of speed. He sent the bike to us to look into a possible restoration or custom project but has decided to let it go to someone else who may want to restore it or use it for parts instead.

The crash damaged the display and some of the wiring harness. True mileage is unknown, but the seller estimates that this bike has between 5,000 and 6,000 miles.

There is direct short to ground somewhere in the wiring harness – as soon as you connect a battery the harness sparks and smokes. The engine holds oil and turns over.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

The front wheel is dented.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Pirelli Rosso III tires with date codes of 0421 and 1421.

The sale includes one key.

The sale also includes a framed poster, however that is at the seller’s home in Texas. The buyer will need to pay shipping for the poster separately.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Aprilia is offered on a clean Texas title.
