2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory (An RR is also available)
The fastest and sportiest naked ever is now even better and becomes a true complete weapon for the road and for the track. Direct descendant of the RSV4, the bike that won seven world SBK Championship titles, the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 is adrenaline in its purest state.
The performance of its unrivalled, revamped V4 has been increased to 1100 cc and 175 hp; more efficient to ride thanks to its revamped chassis and the further development of the already exceptional APRC electronics systems package, but at the same time more convenient and even safer for road use.
There are two models in the range – RR and Factory – characterised by a new look and distinctive features, but with the typical character of the Tuono heritage. And for the first time telemetry arrives, thanks to the V4-MP platform
