An heir to the RSV4 dynasty, it’s the epitome of a thrill machine

Aprilia rolls into the new decade with its racebike-inspired Tuono V4 1100 RR. The factory drew on its own not-inconsiderable WSBK experience to turn out this track-capable ride, and the targeted demographic would be those riders who actually aspire to hit a closed-circuit or road course. A 175-horsepower V4 plant delivers the goods with a full array of revamped, race-centric, ride-quality electronics and corner-sensing technology to complete the package. Essentially, what we have here is a liter-sized superbike with some of the bodywork stripped down to produce a very capable naked streetfighter.

2020 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory

It’s real racebike experience in a naked-sport package

Aprilia created the 2020 Tuono V4 1100 Factory to deliver real racebike experience in a naked-sport package for riders who may actually get beyond the parking lot at the local track. Since Aprilia acts as the racebike division of Piaggio & C. SpA, it brings considerable trackside expertise to the end product for a genuine racebike experience no matter where you ride. V4 power drives an aluminum chassis with robust ride-control electronics with a definite bias for track use, and it comes adorned with weight-saving carbon-fiber bits and bobs to minimize mass. This is a serious bike for serious riders. Don’t be fooled by the relatively low price that slides in just below the $19k mark. That accessibility doesn’t fully express its overall worth as you shall soon see.

2019 Tuono V4 1100 RR & Factory

2019 Tuono V4 1100 RR & Factory

Aprilia put together the Tuono V4 1100 range for folks who want racebike performance but have no intention of ever taking it past the parking lot at the track. The “RR” serves as the base model with the aptly-named “Factory” as a factory-custom model that pulls exclusively from the top shelf for the most discriminating elbow-draggers out there. Both versions rock newly-revamped electronics suites, but of course, the Factory takes that a step or two further, as well, with the new RSV4 superbike’s DNA in evidence across the board. If you’re looking for a street-legal bike that’s also a racer-like bike, Aprilia’s Tuono V4 line may be your Huckleberry.

2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR ABS

Aprilia isn’t a brand you see zipping around Smalltown, U.S.A., but European superbike race fans (and competing manufacturers) know the name all too well. Operating under the Piaggio umbrella, this one-time bicycle, moped and scooter manufacturer now focuses its efforts on building large, powerful racing machines – such as the 2016 Tuono V4 1100 RR. The Aprilia “super-naked” line sprang from experimentation with Aprilia’s then-flagship superbike, the RSV Mille, and evolved over years of Tuono 1000 R production. This newest Tuono benefits from years of successful race experience, and it represents the latest generation of Aprilia ingenuity. I’ve made mention before about how passionate Italians (in general) are about their bikes, so let’s see if the Tuono meets my already-high expectations.

2012 Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC Tuono V4 R APRC

Aprilia launched the 2012 Tuono V4 R APRC, a bike that’s able to deal effortless with the demands of the most hardcore enthusiasts.

The motorcycle features a dynamic body that cuts through the air with ease and is powered by Aprilia’s longitudinal 65° V-4 cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid cooled engine with double overhead camshafts (DOHC) and four valves per cylinder. The modern engine rewards you with a maximum output of 167.3 CV (123 kW) at 11.500 rpm and 111.5 Nm of torque at 9.500 rpm.

The engine is mounted on a strong yet light aluminum frame. The company says that the Tuono’s frame “ exploits the strength and flexibility of cast and pressed elements in a structure that sets new benchmarks in terms of balance and dynamic efficiency.” Shortly, that is translated into maximum torsional stiffness and flexional stiffness.

2013 Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC

2013 Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC

The Aprilia Tuono V4 APRC ruled the World Superbike Championship, so it’s one of the best naked bikes you can find on today’s market.

Power comes from a V4 engine, which delivers 167.3 hp, and is mounted on completely revised chassis architecture. The first three gear ratios are now shorter, while the maximum torque value of 111.5 Nm is on tap at 9,500 rpm, two characteristics that give the Tuono V4 R a huge power at low and mid engine speeds. The bike features triple mapping for instantly tailoring the performance and is also available with APRC.

Up front, the Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC is fitted with an upside down fork with 43 mm diameter. There are also forged aluminium calliper mountings and a completely adjustable spring preload. The front wheel travel is rated at 120 mm.

Next to the RS4, Aprilia also brought the Tuono V4 R supersports bike to the EICMA Show. The new bike features a new exhaust system with bypass valve, which is two kilos lighter than the system used on the RSV4 R and is powered by a V4 65° engine framed by the brushed aluminum elements.

One special feature of the new Tuono V4 R is the APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) joystick, the second generation electronic dynamics control package developed by Aprilia to get as close as possible to the physical limits of riding. APRC is based on an automotive inertia sensor platform, with two gyrometers and two accelerometers allowing the ECU to determine the dynamic state of the motorcycle and control engine torque accordingly to help the rider exploit the full performance potential of the bike in all conditions.

The APRC package includes ATC traction control (Aprilia Traction Control), with eight selectable levels, which controls sliding when accelerating out of a curve in relation to bank angle and throttle aperture, AWC (Aprilia Wheelie Control), which helps the rider control extreme wheelying by gradually bringing the front wheel back to the ground, and AQS (Aprilia Quick Shift), which allows instantaneous upshifts without closing the throttle or using the clutch. Completing the suite of four functions is the most exhilarating of all: ALC (Aprilia Launch Control).

2010 Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory rendering

MotoRevue’s Jérôme Vannesson has put his photoshop skills to work in order to show how the 2010 Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory might look in the opinion of the French motorcycle journalists. This model is expected to be released at the EICMA show in November and, like the Factory edition before it, to feature forged wheels, Öhlins suspension and a multitude of carbon fiber bodywork pieces.

Practically a stripped down RSV4, the Tuono V4 Factory has what it takes to go against the Ducati Streetfighter, especially if we consider the 160hp that the bike will supposedly benefit of according to MotoRevue.

Aprilia Tuono V4 spy shots update

Aprilia Tuono V4 spy shots update

Last week we made a post regarding the new Aprilia Tuono V4, which was caught testing at the Mugello track and although we pretty much figured out the bike then, these latest spy pics of the same bike at Misano come to complete what we earlier wrote about this Italian piece of machinery.

As you can now better see, the bike is no more or less than a naked Aprilia RSV4 R, but we can now get a better glimpse of the small headlight unit and the exhaust, which looks like a modified rocket launcher. The bike is expected to feature a little bit of plastic on the sides, but nothing to set it way apart from these shots. They actually look like made by the Italian manufacturer itself.

Aprilia Tuono V4 & RSV4 R spy shots reveal important details

Aprilia Tuono V4 & RSV4 R spy shots reveal important details

The friends at MCN got their hands on the spy shots of the new Aprilia Tuono V4 and RSV4 R models and it looks like the bikes are very close to being launched. Both have been spotted during tests undergone on the Mugello track in Italy.

Although none of the two bikes is revolutionary, both being based on the Aprilia RSV 4 Factory, these photos reveal a few essential details.

The RSV 4 R model will follow his RSV 1000 R sibling, meaning that it will have cheaper parts than on the Factory. Affordability was a priority and, given the fact that the RSV 4 Factory now costs around $18,000, we can expect the R model to compete with the 2010 BMW S1000RR.

In order to reduce costs, Aprilia goes for Showa suspension instead of Ohlins, less exotic rims and gives up to different carbon fiber bits and pieces, but do manage to retain the Brembo monoblock calipers.

The Aprilia Tuono V4 carries on the tradition of the naked models built at the Noale factory, meaning that it features stripped bodywork, straight handlebar and a strange looking headlight.

Given the fact that this year’s Paris Moto Show was canceled and the next Intermot edition in Germany is scheduled to take place in 2010, the Italians are left with an only option to launch the new models: EICMA 2009.

2009 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R/Factory

2009 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R/Factory

Italy provides some of the most beautiful, high-performing examples of naked extravaganza (at least in what motorcycles are concerned), machines that end up setting the trend in their category and which will undoubtably end up museum pieces once their era is gone (yep, that’s hard to believe for me too).

Two such machines are built by Aprilia, the Tuono 1000 R and the Tuono 1000 R Factory, and are claimed to be leaders of their class as a result of being derived from their superbike siblings, the RSV4 and the RSV4 Factory. While we haven’t yet tested these bikes, we must say that the performance numbers (139hp and 107 Nm) speak for themselves.

Aprilia offers the Tuono 1000 R as a base model and the Factory version is no more than a lighter one as a result of being fitted with Ohlins suspensions and different carbon fiber pieces.

A Aprilia that looks better then when it got out the factory’s gates

This Aprilia Tuono stands out not only by its manufacturer-given features, but also thanks to the very particular orange paintjob. Placed in a unique location (a chemical plant) it looks inspiring and provides an awesome though small picture gallery.

The bike is a 2008 model year and retains its original technical specifications as well as design. So even though it is hard to believe, a single paint change can radically upgrade a bike in what concerns the visual aspect. This is one good example.
