Aprilia Tuono V4 and Tuono V4 Factory details

Hot on the heels of the mid range Tuono 660 offering is this 2021 re-boot of the WorldSBK contender from Noale, the RSV4, and its naked sibling, the Tuono V4. The updated bikes are going to include a new overall look, including built-in winglets as per the RS 660 line. They'll also get an improved electronics package, new chassis architecture, all-new exhaust and the new Moto-GP style swingarm. Aprilia has confirmed the 1077cc engine will continue to provide 175bhp, 121Nm of torque and outstanding performance which has defined the range, with required changes made to conform with Euro 5 regulations.

Still an ultra-fast street bike, Aprilia promises softer ergonomics with comfort improvements. The Tuono V4 is billed as a more comfortable long-distance machine, which an improved top fairing offering greater protection,  with raised handlebars and an updated tank for better rider ergonomics. 

To navigate the multitude of rider options, a new larger TFT screen has been crafted to more intuitively decide which one of the 6 riding modes suits the situation. There are 3 track (2 customisable), and 3 road (1 customisable) rider modes available, with traction control, wheelie control, adjustable engine brake management, and ABS control on offer - with the ABS and traction control being controlled by the six-axis IMU and Mirelli 11MP ECU.

The top fairing continues to house three LED lights, but will also feature “bending lights” which activate to illuminate the inside of a corner - very snazzy.

The underslung swingarm with Moto GP heritage also makes an appearance. It is now lighter and made from aluminium, with a lower reinforcement brace to improve stability under acceleration.

Thought has even been paid to pillions, with much more realistic proportions provided for any lucky passengers, lower footpegs, and increased rear-of-saddle space. 

Tuono V4 colour options are Tarmac Grey, and Glacier White - we’ve got to say, Tarmac vs Glacier is an interesting dynamic.
Tuono V4 Factory colour option is simply Aprilia Black, but also comes fitted with Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension.

All in all, the Tuono promises to be an exceptional road & track machine, and once we hear the final details we’ll keep you updated.
