2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory ABS

“If I’m gonna spend ,200 extra for the Factory version, I’d expect the lighter forged wheels, which we know reduces steering effort considerably over heavier cast wheels. “The one gripe I have about the Tuono is its somewhat lardy weight,” Duke whinges.

The braking system on the Tuono V4 1100 has a pair of refined Brembo monobloc M432 callipers on the front which mounts pads with the best possible friction coefficient that grip lightweight aluminium flanged discs (for Tuono V4 1100 Factory). The cast aluminium wheel rims are the same for both models: their lightweight quality contributes to a maximum reduction of the gyroscopic effect, all to the advantage of great handling. Tuono V4 1100 Factory is shod with the sportier Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa, with a wider 200/55 on the rear, in any case approved for street use and available for the Tuono V4 RR as well. And after watching the Tuono lose magazine shootouts because it was under-powered, Aprilia decided to bore-out the engine 3mm, (bumping displacement from 78mm to 81mm), tossed-in lighter pistons attached to lighter Pankl connecting rods and increased midrange power delivery by nearly 20hp versus the 2015 version. Unless you have a race-prepped RC45 or Desmosedici in your personal fleet, Aprilia now has the best running V4 powered bikes you can get your hands on.
