The RS 457 draws inspiration from the bigger RS 660

On the cosmetic front, the RS 457 draws inspiration from the bigger RS 660, with design elements like the signature three-pot LED headlamp and other highlights. The motorcycle will be offered in three colour schemes, derived from Aprilia’s championship bikes. The bike is built around a perimeter frame with a bolt-on subframe. In terms of electronics, the RS 457 comes with three riding modes, three levels of switchable traction control, dual-channel ABS and a quick-shifter as an option.

In terms of cycle parts, the RS 457 is suspended by a 41 mm USD fork setup at the front with 120 mm of travel and a monoshock at the rear with 130 mm of travel. Both are preload adjustable. Braking is handled by a 320 mm disc up front with a Bybre 4-piston radial caliper and a 220 mm disc at the rear with a single-piston floating caliper. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch wheels shod with 110/70 (F) and 150/60 (R) section tyres.
