RIZOMA STEALTH RACING MIRROR MIRRORS (PAIR) FOR APRILIA RS660 RSV4 1100 2021
Out of the interface between racing experience and aeronautical inspiration comes a new mirror: Stealth, an accessory specifically designed for supersport bikes.
It consists of a fixed part, which allows the fitting directly to the fairing, and a movable part, which acts as a mirror glass holder.
Thanks to a rotating system, by a simple movement, the two parts get aligned: in closed position the mirror becomes an aerodynamic foil.
While the mirror glass holder is always the same, the fixed component is designed ad hoc for each supersport bikes for which Stealth was developed, looking for the best solution to match the relative aerodynamic results.
Made of billet aluminum, it has a convex glass surface to provide a wider viewing angle and is available in three different anodized colors.
Stealth's design, with its wing-like shape and 25° angle relative to the ground, give it a linear look, ensure it generates downforce, in turn improving the bike's grip and handling performance, especially at high speed. Downforce pressure is around 4 kg at 300 km/h.
The ergonomics has been optimized as well: when the rider takes a sporty riding position, the mirrors are aligned with the rider's eye level. In this way, the rider does not have to raise his position to get a correct rear view, keeping the head protected by the headlight fairing and, therefore, by the pressure that impacts the face at high speed.
On bikes that, as standard equipment, have rear-mirrors with integrated turn signals, Rizoma recommends to buy, in combination with Stealth, the Light Unit turn signals (part nr. FR070BM) to allow the front turn signals repositioning. Please check the appropriate mounting and wiring kit required to properly install Light Unit on your bike (to buy separately).

Rizoma was born out of a challenge: to bring style and design to an industry in which the product was seen as just a spare part.
Back in 2001 Fabrizio Rigolio was set a challenge by a friend who wanted a unique accessory he could fit to his own bike.
Along with his brother, Fabio, he created a mirror that would immediately acquire legendary status among motorcycle enthusiasts. Riding the crest of the wave, the two brothers gave their creativity free rein, producing ever-more striking products./
Within a few years, after establishing a base in Italy and setting up the first workshops overseas, Fabrizio and Fabio began focusing on what they believed made the difference in this business: design. Hence the founding of Area 13, a Hub dedicated to research, development and innovation.
Today, the Rizoma brand is renowned worldwide. It expresses its own unique viewpoint and reinterprets how materials are used by nurturing unique projects in which Italian manufacturing and design merge and strengthen each other.
