In early September 2023, Aprilia unveiled the highly anticipated RS 457 at the Misano MotoGP round in Italy. This new addition to the RS family caught the attention of fans and enthusiasts alike. Powered by an A2-compliant 35 kilowatt parallel twin engine, the RS 457 offers approximately 46.9 horsepower. With a claimed curb weight of 175 kilograms (386 pounds), it promises a thrilling ride.
Although the RS 457 made its physical debut at EICMA in November 2023, it was not a new model introduction. Instead, Piaggio Group Americas took this opportunity to announce the colors, pricing, and availability for the US and Canadian markets.
For the 2024 model year, Aprilia will offer three color options for the RS 457: Racing Stripes, Prismatic Dark, and Opalescent Light. The availability and pricing will vary by region.
In the United States, the RS 457 will have an MSRP of $6,799 for the Prismatic Dark and Opalescent Light colorways. Opting for the Racing Stripes colorway will cost an additional $100, with an MSRP of $6,899. American Aprilia dealerships are expected to receive these bikes in April 2024. Compared to the RS 660, which starts at an MSRP of $11,499, the RS 457 offers a more accessible price point for a wider range of riders.
In Canada, the RS 457 will be priced at $7,799 for the Prismatic Dark and Opalescent Light colorways. Choosing the Racing Stripes colorway will increase the MSRP to $7,999. Canadian Aprilia dealerships should start receiving the 2024 RS 457 in June 2024.
For riders outside of the US and Canada, it is recommended to contact your local Aprilia dealer for the most accurate information regarding pricing and availability.
The 2024 Aprilia RS 457 promises an exciting and accessible option for riders looking for a high-performance motorcycle. With its striking design and competitive pricing, it is sure to make waves in the sportbike market.
