2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Edition

After great success racing the smaller displacement classes in Moto GP, Aprilia developed a World Superbike machine and produced the RSV Mille road bike from 1998 through 2003.  Except for the SP ( Sport Production ) 1999 homologation special which used a Cosworth-developed high revving engine, the R model is the ultimate, and this Colin Edwards Edition with livery from the RS Cube race bike, is from the last year of production and very rare indeed.

With a 997cc v-twin from Rotax, the booming RSV-Mille has 137hp, a wide torque band, and a 172mph top speed.  The R-model has fully-adjustable Ohlins front and rear, O-Z forged wheels, and Brembo disks, 320mm front and 220mm rear.  Somewhat lighter than the base RSV at 416 lbs dry, the R model has carbon fiber front fender, air scoops, heel guards, and muffler stays.  In addition to the race-replica paint, the Colin Edwards Edition has a ram-air carbon filter housing and Akrapovic exhaust.

Fast and Collectible: 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Edition

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille Colin Edwards 1

Colin Edwards didn’t ride an RSV in World Superbike, but he did ride for Aprilia Cube in Moto GP, and this edition of the talented v-twin Aprilia was inspired by their unfortunately troubled GP efforts.

The Mille was designed to compete in races and in the showroom against, and grab a slice of Ducati’s v-twin pie, the RSV didn’t simply mimic their formula. Instead of the standard 90° twins usually chosen for sporting twins because of their inherent smoothness, Aprilia contracted with Rotax to build a more compact 998cc 60° motor that allowed more freedom to position the engine in the RS250-derived frame for optimum handling. Twin balance shafts were included to smooth the engine and keep vibrations to an acceptable level.

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille Colin Edwards 3

The bulbous fairing and jet-exhaust and stealth-fighter paint certainly look like nothing else on the road, but provide better wind protection and more rider comfort than the 916’s sleek fairing, especially for taller riders. Reliability is generally excellent, and service intervals are much longer than Ducati’s of the same period.

The R version saw the inclusion of Öhlins suspension front and rear, with a matching steering damper and forged wheels and a dash of carbon fiber. The Colin Edwards Replica is a bit of a paint-and-tape job compared to the standard R, but that’s no bad thing considering the performance of that machine, although it did include the exhausts you see here, a different airbox, and bigger throttle bodies.

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille Colin Edwards 2

The dual exhausts of this bike are a huge improvement, I think, over the bulky standard single-sided item. Maybe v-twins just look better with twin exhausts?

The Mille managed to blend Japanese build and reliability with Italian style and handling. Basic bikes are fitted with very good components as standard, and represent the cool bike bargain of the decade, unless you’re a collector or a serious track junky. Race-biased performance enhancements of the R model make them ideal for track-rats who want some Italian style and feel on a budget. Race replicas like this Colin Edwards lie at the top end of RSV pricing, but they still represent serious bang for the buck compared to special edition Ducatis.

Mad Ape: 2003 Aprilia RSV1000R Colin Edwards Edition

RSV1000R_18

Up for grabs today is a RSV1000R produced as a tribute to the venerable Colin Edwards. Aside from being one of the most like-able personalities in recent racing history, Colin was also explosively fast and competitive. It is a shame that the last few seasons in MotoGP did not showcase his true talent, yet his absence from the grid is missed all the same. This replica was inspired by the Aprilia RS Cube machine that was raced in MotoGP, and was produced in pretty limited numbers. Somewhere between 450 – 461 were created (numbers vary), and only 50 were imported into the US. This is bike number 45 of 50. Performance wise, the CE machine sported the same track package as the Haga replica, with intake, airbox and injector mods, Akropovic exhaust and computer updates. These are rare and pretty collectible machines – check out the Edwards archives to learn more about previous editions posted on RSBFS.

The seller notes some damage to the bike, but no real detail as to the why. It doesn’t look terrible in the pictures provided, but all the same let the buyer beware. We don’t see these models every day, and given the spec level these are quite the gem in the Aprilia lineup. Besides, this one has only 6,000 miles. Check it out here and revel in the greatness that is Colin Edwards!

Colin Edwards Replica Aprilia RSV Mille R 2003

Now here we do have a nice rare bike with 461 produced worldwide.  In 2003, Aprilia produced an RSV Mille R Edwards Replica with a livery inspired by the Aprilia RS3 Cube MotoGP motorcycle riden by Colin Edwards, as with the Haga replica from 2002, the motorcycle came with a circuit kit, which included Akrapovic exhausts, a more pressurised airbox, an Eprom injection unit and 57 mm (instead of 51 mm) throttle bodies.  The Mille also featured a type of slipper clutch, which worked by using a vacuum on a closed throttle from the inlet manifold to give the effect of slipper clutch, but only on a closed throttle, whereas most modern examples use a ramp mechanism in the clutch basket.

Up for Auction: an Aprilia Rare Colin Edwards Replica, one of 461 made world wide – street legal track bike – race kit on each machine – Rotax engine, 57-mm throttle bodies, Eprom injection unit, with racing chip – engine management, six speed close ratio transmission, carbon fiber larger air box and snorkel, Akrapovic titanium exhaust, slipper clutch, 16 tooth sprocket, four piston Brembo double floating disk brakes, Olins suspension front and rear, olins steering damper, Heli bars, OZ Blue forged aluminum Anodized wheels on Pirelli’s…rides like a dream – top speed 180MPH.

I bought the bike from a friend who spilled it with 62 miles on it, scratched it up, complained to the insurance company that parts were hard to get and they gave him most of his money back. I had some panels repainted, made sure it was all straight and rode it! It is a wonderful machine but I can only ride one motorcycle, I hate to let it go but…….. I have a low reserve on this bike, that originally sold for over $19,000.
Please ask all questions before bidding, email through ebay, the winner of the auction is responsible for picking the bike up or for shipping to anywhere. A deposit on your Master Card or Visa of $1,000.00 at the end of the auction – the rest in three days. Bidders are welcome to come and view the bike in person, I tried to take as many pictures are allowed to show off the bike and also to show some of the minor scratches.

The eBay Listing can be found here.

RSV Mille R’s are very nice bike sand this example is rather special with a low mileage.  It has got a few bumps and bruises but on a bike such as this it should not be an issue.  Price wise these are a bit of a bargain particularly when compared to other Italian bikes, this would seem to have a value somewhere in the $7k-$9k range based upon other examples being sold.  Happy bidding.

2003 APRILIA RSV R COLIN EDWARDS REPLICA 2500 Miles

2003 APRILIA RSV R COLIN EDWARDS REPLICA 2500 Miles

Ah, another race replica.  As I’ve said before I’m just a sucker for these things.  Maybe I just like colorful things!   Maybe it’s just the wanna be in me.  I hadn’t payed close attention to the RSVR replica’s when they came out but I should have: Aprilia really gave you a nice package.  Much more than just flashy graphics  (which please me so much).  Compared to the standard RSVR you got Ohlins suspension, Akrapovic exhaust, different air box, larger throttle bodies and some carbon fiber.  That’s quite a nice package of goodies compared to some of the “limited editions” the Japanese companies have put out lately.

The seller states:

 THIS BIKE IS VERY NEAR PERFECT. THERE IS A SCRATCH ON THE REAR WHEEL AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PICS AND THAT IS ABOUT IT. IT HAS BEEN RIDDEN, BUT IT  HAS BEEN EXTREMELY WELL KEPT. I HAVE A LOT OF THE ORIGINAL MANUALS, ETC. THAT GO WITH THE BIKE. THE BIKE RUNS VERY, VERY STRONG AND SOUNDS INCREDIBLE! IT NEEDS NOTHING. THE TIRES ARE STILL IN GOOD CONDITION TOO. THERE WERE VERY FEW OF THESE EDWARDS REPLICAS BROUGHT INTO THE USA (50 I BELIEVE). I HAVE ONLY SEEN 3 OF THEM. I BOUGHT ONE NEW IN 2004, I HAVE SEEN THE ONE THAT COLIN EDWARDS DONATED TO BARBER’S MOTORSPORTS MUSEUM, AND THIS ONE! DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART AND A SURE COLLECTIBLE.

One thing I forgot was this is actually a replica of Colin Edwards’ RS3 Cube not a super bike like the Haga Replica of a year earlier.  Too bad it didn’t get the Cubes’ engine too!  I do have one question for Aprilia.  Why the heck did they skimp on the “Alice” graphic?  That big hole drives me crazy.  It is still a pretty bike in my book though. If you are so inclined the bidding as already begun on and the reserve has not been met.

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards racer replica

Another Italian V-twin for sale, but only this time it’s not that other brand. Yes, a 2003 Colin Edwards – Texas Tornado – special with a laundry list of bits that make it even more appealing than it already is.
Located in Boise, ID with an asking price of $9,000.00 this one is sure to please. Complete with racer boy graphics, a whole lot of carbon fiber, Leo Vince exhaust (that looks to be a titanium piece), those ever sweet blue anodized OZ wheels shod with some new stick icky and one of my personal favs – black Sato rear sets.

This is a whole lot of bike for the money and would make for a great weekend canyon carver or a nice living room piece. The only thing that turns me off about the Aprilia Mille is they appear to be too big. I’m not sure why, but it might be how the tail section sits up or the bulbous looking fairing… But,either one of those little quirk’s wouldn’t keep me from throwing a leg over it and giving it a proper flogging through the curves.

Aprilia’s attention to detail and little add-on’s like the anodized triple clamp and the jet fighter engine looking tail light really set these apart from the crowd. Take a look and give it a once (or twice) over.

Quotes:

Has approx. 6400 miles, new tires (rear still has stubs)6K mile service completed. In 2 years I have only put approx. 500 miles on this bike. The year I bought this I also purchased a Honda XR 650L thinking I might try more dual sport riding. Now I have decided that I want to really pursue the dual sport riding extensively and sell more of my sport bikes, or maybe Im just getting too old to remain crouched for that long, more likely the latter.

Ohlins supension front and rear
Oz wheels
Power Commander
ASV fully adjustable levers
SATO black rear sets
Leo Vince exhaust
Corbin seat
DHM frame sliders
Ventura front light guard
smoked sheild

Its one of 50 in the states (At least one has been crashed, and one in the Barber museum)
and around 300 built worldwide.

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Replica

Located in Massachusetts is a 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Replica, one of 461 worldwide. If you’re looking for a modern Italian V-twin, this bike may be up your alley. This bike differs from a standard Mille R by having a “…SBK Superbike exhaust system designed jointly by Akrapovic and Aprilia Racing…57mm throttle body kit, carbon-fiber racing airbox…and carbon fiber bodywork.” A neat Mille and something different if you’re looking for something Italian but don’t want a run of the mill Duc. The only disadvantage of buying this bike used? Not being able to partake in the original track day with Mr. Edwards himself that the bike would have originally come with. The bike has been used and is showing 12,679 miles, but with the auction starting at $1.00, the market will decide how that mileage effects this bikes value. See the Motorcyclist Magazine review here. See the eBay ad here.

See one with 323 original miles located in Orange County, California here. (06/29)

EDIT: Sold for $8,200 with 24 bids on 06/20/09.
