Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE w/ Performance Ride Control - Click above to watch video after the jump

Electronic driver aids in cars? Commonplace. We take them for granted, whether they're enhancing performance, convenience, or safety. But what about motorcycles? Those of us who don't ride may be surprised to see how technology is now making bikes better, too. Case in point: Aprilia, which features a suite of aids dubbed Performance Ride Control in the 2011 RSV4 Factory APRC SE.

Aprilia USA went to our friends at Hell For Leather and Tangent Vector to produce a video that demonstrates and explains the significance of Performance Ride Control. Hit the jump to watch the video, where you'll see launch control, wheelie control, traction control and quickshift come together to help riders push the performance envelope. This stuff's not just for cars anymore, and the benefits are equally remarkable.
