The Aprilia RS 457 debuted in India ahead of the Indian MotoGP event that took place in September 2023, followed by its price announcement and public display at the India Bike Week in December 2023. 

The first Aprilia motorcycle to be made in India, the new RS 457, has been positioned below the RS 660 and has become the most affordable motorcycle from Aprilia in India. The local production of Aprilia RS 457 is happening at Piaggio’s production facility in Baramati (Maharashtra), where other Aprilia and Vespa scooters are also made. 

While the first batch will include only 100 units, the deliveries of Aprilia RS 457 will begin in full swing from the next month through all of its 31 dealerships. Aprilia is also eyeing increasing the production of the motorcycle, considering that the RS 457 is made in India and exported to many parts of the world.
