Ilmberger Carbon | Aprilia RSV4 [2009-19] | Rear Hugger
The Ilmberger Carbon rear hugger is specifically outstanding on the high-grade swingarms of Aprilias V4 series. The extremely lightweight part is a reliable protection for the rear Suspension but does not negatively affect the sporty looks of the bike. The rear hugger in carbon for the Aprilia RSV 4 (2009-now) / Tuono V4 (2011-now) is a direct replacement for the original component and contributes mainly to weight saving on the motorcycle (up to 70% less) and a higher stiffness of the parts.
Like all of their carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current 'best of industry' practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave.
As with all their carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.
