Providing a futuristic showcase platform for the company's upcoming technical and styling directions, Aprilia’s FV2 concept bike incorporates a fly-by-wire injection system, traction control, ABS, electronically adjustable suspension and carbon fiber construction with a 1200cc, 90-degree v-twin engine that we are likely to see in the RSV and Tuono in the next couple of years.

The dash integrates a nav system that also supports downloading of performance telemetry data or upload of new engine mappings from the Web.

The 1200cc, 90-degree v-twin claims 134.5 metric horses and over 10.5 kgm of torque, which is in the ballpark for sporty streetbikes and nakeds these days.

At the front end the most notable feature is the Hossack-style forks that look similar to the Duolever system BMW has been putting on its K1200R.
