Aprilia has announced the launch of the RS 457 at India Bike Week 2023. It is priced at Rs 4.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Maharashtra).

The Aprilia RS 457 is a fully-faired bike featuring dual LED headlamps with a short visor and clip-on handlebars at the front, a short tail section and an underbelly exhaust. It is equipped with a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, 3-stage traction control and ABS. 

The RS 457 is powered by a 457cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 47 BHP, which puts it in the same league as the KTM RC 390. The engine is mated with a 6-speed gearbox. The bike gets a ride-by-wire system and an optional quick shifter.
