Goa, 7th December 2023: In a much-awaited and historic unveiling, Aprilia is set to launch the highly anticipated RS 457 in India on December 8, 2023, at the prestigious India Bike Week (IBW) event in Goa. This launch marks a significant milestone for the Italian motorcycle manufacturer as it introduces its maiden ‘made-in-India’ bike, poised to carve its niche in the Indian market. The price revelation for the RS 457 is anticipated during the IBW event, with speculations pointing towards a competitive ex-showroom price hovering around Rs. 4 lakh.

Eagerly anticipated by enthusiasts, the RS 457 has already made waves globally, drawing design cues from its esteemed predecessors, the RS 660 and RSV4. Distinguished by its sharp contours and precise creases, the motorcycle’s facade boasts a sleek split-type LED headlamp, exuding an aura of aggression and style.

Concealed beneath its striking fairing lies a robust 457cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, delivering a formidable 47bhp power output coupled with a six-speed gearbox. Impressively, the RS 457 surpasses its closest rivals, the KTM RC 390 and the Kawasaki Ninja 400, in terms of power output. Built on a twin-spar aluminum frame, this dynamic motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloys supported by USD forks and a monoshock. Notable features include full LED lighting, a TFT console, multi-level traction control, and a quick shifter, offering a comprehensive package to riders.

Details regarding pre-bookings and delivery timelines for the RS 457 are yet to be disclosed. Initially available in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, this captivating motorcycle is set to captivate enthusiasts seeking the perfect amalgamation of performance and design.
