During the 74th edition of Daytona Bike Week, Aprilia USA unveiled three 2016 models – the RSV4 RF, Tuono V4 1100 Factory, and the Caponord 1200 Rally.
Each model was a pre-production version, and they were shown alongside Aprilia’s entire 2015 model lineup.
Besides showing the 2016 models, Aprilia also announced pricing and availability for each model (listed below).
2016 Aprilia RSV4 RF
The 2016 RSV4 RR now exceeds 200 horsepower, which became the norm for other recently launched sport bikes such as the Yamaha YZF-R1 and Ducati 1299. The RSV4 RR also weighs less, has more advanced aPRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) electronics, and bolder styling.
The Aprilia RSV4 RF version was unveiled simultaneously with other early 2016 models at the Aprilia Tent at Daytona. The RSV4 RF model will be come in Superpole graphic option, and will be available at US dealerships in June at an MSRP of $21,999.
2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory
The big news for the Tuono V4 1100 is the boost in power and displacement (achieved through a three millimeter increase in bore in each cylinder). Not hindered by superbike racing rules, the Tuono’s V4 now displaces 1077cc and produced 175 horsepower at 11,000 rpm. The torque peak of 88.5 ft/lbs arrives 2000 rpm earlier. Aprilia also refined the chassis to work with this increased power.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory model will be come in Superpole graphic option, and will be available at US dealerships in May at an MSRP of $16,299.
2016 Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally
The Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally is the Caponord upgraded with all the vitals a true ADV rider seeks, including spoked 19” front/17” rear wheels over the base-model’s cast 17”/17” setup, engine protection, auxiliary LED lights, a larger adjustable windscreen, and of course, box-type panniers that are all the rage in the ADV world.
The Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally will be come in Matte Green Color option (no yellow or grey), and will be available at US dealerships in May at an MSRP of $15,699.
