From the guys at Moto22 in Spain, we discover that two Aprilia RSW 500’s are for sale. The models participated in the world 500cc class with Tetsuya Harada in 1999, and in 2000 with Harada and Jeremy McWilliams.
The Aprilia RSW 500 is equipped with a 498cc two-stroke, twin-cyliner engine. It is liquid cooled with a Rave valve on the electronically-controlled exhaust and has two Dell’Orto VHSD 42 caburettors. It has 140hp of power at 11,750 rpm.
Other features include Ohlins fork at 42mm with double hydraulic control and APS system with Ohlins shock absorbers. The fork is in carbon, as are the twin front disc brakes. The rear brake is a single disc in steel measuring 190mm with four piston calipers.
The bikes on sale are the RSW 500 V2 Harada 1999 version, the RSW 500 V2 2000 Harada version and the RSW 500 V2 McWilliams 2000 version. The original versions include an Aprilia serial number confirming their authenticity, and come with an Aprilia declaration on their origin including race and result details.
The bikes, being racing versions, are not suitable for road use and therefore cannot be registered or used on the roads, though they are completely functional. For conditions of sale and other details, go to Combattiva.it.
