The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR ABS is a super naked bike based on Aprilia’s RSV4 1,000cc class superbike. It was first released in 2002 as a naked version of the Aprilia RSV Mille, a 998 cc V-Twin motorcycle.

That V2 model of the Tuono stayed in production through 2011 before giving way to the Tuono as we know it. The Tuono built around Aprilia’s 1000cc 65-degree V4 powerplant from the RSV4 superbike.

Without the racing restrictions imposed on the RSV4 to remain in racing, the Tuono got a displacement bump in 2015 to 1,077 cc, along with a new name: The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR. This bike shares the frame, gearbox, some of the suspension, and the electronics of the RSV4 sportbike, but with relaxed ergonomics and power tuned more for the street.

The 2017 Aprilia Tuono makes 153 horsepower and 78 pound-feet of torque, has an electronics package rivalling that of any race-bred superbike, and was updated this year with a new full-color TFT screen and improved suspension.

The Aprilia Tuono has a MSRP of $14,999 and is available in silver and black.

Thoughts from the Staff

"The Tuono is a race bike with slightly lowered footpegs and a handlebar. It also my favorite machine in the world to go around in squiggly circles on a race track. Good God, I love this bike."
