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!

  • I love it when sellers take extreme liberty with the facts,154 HP? Dyno sheet to prove it,I don’t think Aprilia even claimed that from the factory at the crank!

  • What happened to the Ohlins forks and radial mount Brembo’s. My Edwards edition has them.

  • shame the pipes are cut down…..

  • I could have sworn that the Edwards replica came stock with ohlins suspension and an anodized blue upper triple clamp (just like the Haga). Also, the cans on the exhaust appear much shorter than what came stock. Can anyone who has owned one verify?

  • My guess is forks were damaged and top triple had to be changed to fit replacement forks.

  • Yeah, I inquired and the seller claimed they had to be changed, but also tried to convince me that the brakes on it (pictured) were radial brakes calipers…. No way this bike hasn’t been crashed and repaired, buyer beware.

  • …and they say the 999 is ugly.

  • Where’s the “not rare guy”? Maybe it’s the only CE special with a factory ohlins delete.

  • thanks guys! I live close to this bike and was gonna purchase. Thanks for the heads up. I decided against it after i confirmed you info

  • I never heard of this. I’ve seen the Haga but I want a Edwards addition!
