Boutique Italian race motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia has unveiled a first look at its 2013 RSV4 Factory APRC, a brand-new, high-end superbike to be marketed and sold only in the United States and Canada.

The limited-edition bike is based on Aprilia's RSV4, on which Max Biaggi won the World Superbike Championships in 2010 and 2012. Among its features are anti-lock brakes, traction and wheelie controls, improved ergonomics and increased fuel capacity.

First units of the 1000cc, 180-plus-horsepower motorcycle will be available at U.S. and Canadian dealers in April. The company will reveal pricing in February. Expect a little sticker shock. MSRP for the 2012 RSV4 Factory APRC was $22,999.
