2012 Aprilia Tuono V4 R | Quick Look

2012 Aprilia Motorcycle

Building on the success of the incredible RSV4 superbike platform, the 2012 Aprilia Tuono V4 R is a serious unfaired upright streetfighting machine.

Even with the motor retuned for the street, the Tuono puts out a staggering 167 horses at 11,500 rpm and 82 ft/lbs of torque 2000 rpm earlier.

The Tuono weighs a few more pounds (including a heavier flywheel) and has a slightly relaxed rake compared to the RSV4, though it has much of the electronic wizardry, including traction control, wheelie control, quick shifting, and launch control, as well as three different engine modes – Track, Sport, and Road.
