Road test Aprilia RST1000 Futura
The RST 1000 Futura is made for road riders, who want the best of both worlds - supersport performance with the convenience of a full touring fairing. The Futura is ideal for high-speed journeys with a level of performance that guarantees maximum riding and touring pleasure. Even the pillion provides genuine touring comfort, allowing the passenger to relax and enjoy the bikes impressive performance along with the rider. The heart of the Futura is the same V-twin that powers all Aprilias big sports bikes, and is the most powerful twin cylinder engine in the sport touring class. The 60° V-twin, with four valves per cylinder and double overhead cams with mixed chain and gear timing drive, is derived from the RSV supersport, but tuned for touring. The Futura delivers good power even at very low revs, eliminating the need to change gear in traffic and at low speeds. Aprilia claim 113bhp at the crank @9250rpm. The hydraulic clutch assisted by the patented Pneumatic Power Clutch system to control rear wheel bounce. The aluminium alloy twin-spar frame and brand-new single sided swingarm not only looks good but makes the bike handle better. The front fork is a 43mm Showa upside down unit, with adjustable rebound and preload. The under-seat exhaust allows the panniers to be fitted close in to the bike`s chassis, significantly reducing width and the annoying turbulence that comes with it. The direction indicators are integrated in the rear view mirrors. The fuel filler cap is offset to the right of the tank to facilitate refuelling with the bike on its side stand.
