    The RS 457 has been designed and developed at Aprilia’s headquarters in Italy and features a design inspired by the larger RS 660. Styling elements include the slim LED headlamps with three lighting elements, committed riding posture, upswept tail and sporty graphics. The supersport sits on a perimeter frame with a bolt-on frame attached to it.  

    Powering the bike is a new 457 cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine developing a maximum of 47 bhp while torque figures are still under wraps. The unit is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Stopping power comes courtesy of a 320 mm disc with four-piston callipers up front and a 220 mm disc and single-piston calliper at the rear.

    Coming to features, the RS 457 gets a suite of electronic aids including three ride modes, adjustable traction control (three levels) and dual-channel ABS. There is also a 5.0-inch colour TFT screen for the instrumentation and backlit switchgear on the handlebars.


    For India, the RS 457 is expected to be manufactured at Piaggio’s plant in Maharashtra and will go up against the likes of the KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 400 and the soon-to-be-launched Yamaha YZF R3.
