2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R aPRC ABS Preview

The 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R has been announced by the Italian motorcycle company, and it features some updates for 2015, including a three-horsepower peak increase (now 170 horsepower from the V4 motor), improved peak torque (83.3 ft/lbs), and an internal change to the exhaust system.

A high-performance naked upright, the 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R aPRC ABS retains all of the important updates from last year: Racing ABS (3 maps, plus off), Brembo M432 monoblock radial front calipers, increased tank capacity (+0.40 gallons) that was reshaped for improved ergonomics, Sachs forks with one-by-one separated hydraulic adjustments, improved seat ergonomics with softer padding, comfort-oriented suspension setting, and the highly sophisticated aPRC electronics package.

aPRC gives the 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R eight traction control settings, wheelie control, no-clutch quick shifting, and launch control. There are also three power maps — T (Track) is full power and instant throttle response from the 170 horse power motor; S (Sport) is designed for street riding with smoother power, and R (Road) which detunes the motor by 25% and is designed for use in the rain and urban areas.

The 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R aPRC ABS will be available in September 2014, will run $14,499, and be available in Matte White and Matt Black.
