The 2003 MY Aprilia RSV Mille R Edwards has, at its heart, a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 998cc, single cylinder powerhouse paired to a six-speed manual transmission and can produce a claimed 138 horsepower and 107 Nm of torque.

This machine has been created in honor of Colin Edwards, nicknamed the "Texas Tornado", who in the same year joined the Aprilia MotoGP team. Unlike the RSV 1000 R, this machine also comes standard with a livery copied from the official MotoGP machine, a dual, high-end Akrapovic dual exhaust system which improves performance, a modified engine mapping and carbon fiber body-parts.
