Simply unrivalled. The Aprilia naked range, heir to a family of motorbikes which has been voted over time as one of the most adrenaline pumping and efficient bikes ever, achieves absolute performance levels and sophistication, thanks to Aprilia's know-how acquired over years of winning premier level competitions and the experience of the Tuono history, which is thus confirmed as being unbeatable on the track and loads of fun on the road. The Tuono V4 family of motorbikes is made up of two distinctly outfitted models. Tuono V4 1100 RR represents an exceptional thrill machine, the heir to a dynasty of naked sport bikes acclaimed by critics as the most effective and fastest bike in its segment.
The Tuono V4 1100 RR and Tuono V4 1100 Factory APRC includes:
ATC: Aprilia Traction Control, adjustable on the fly (without having to release the throttle) to 8 settings thanks to a practical joystick, boasts precise and high performance operating logic.
AWC: Aprilia Wheelie Control,the wheelie control system that can be adjusted to 3 levels, has extremely precise operating strategies. Wheelie control can be adjusted on the fly without closing the throttle, like the ATC, thanks to the practical left side electric block.
ALC: Aprilia Launch Control, for use on the track only, with 3 settings, uses extremely effective operating strategies.
AQS: Aprilia Quick Shift, the electronic gearbox that allows shifting without closing the throttle and without using the clutch, also equipped with the downshift function, to allow clutchless downshifting. Its open-throttle downshifting feature is exclusive.
APL: Aprilia Pit Limiter, the system that lets you select and limit the top speed allowed in pit lane at the track or simply to make it easier to comply with posted speed limits on the road.
ACC: Aprilia Cruise Control. This is very convenient on longer trips because it lets you maintain the set speed without touching the throttle.
The Tuono V4 1100 range is fitted with the advanced multimap Cornering ABS system, developed in collaboration with Bosch to guarantee maximum safety on the road, without sacrificing any performance on the track. The 9.1 MP system, with truly contained weight and dimensions, is able to optimize braking and the ABS intervention in corners, thanks to a specific algorithm that constantly monitors various parameters such as lateral acceleration, the pressure applied to the front brake lever, the lean, pitch and yaw angle, modulating the braking action in order to better guarantee the ratio between deceleration and stability. The ABS system works in unison with the Aprilia RLM (Rear Liftup Mitigation) system that limits the lift of the rear wheel during more abrupt braking. Cornering ABS, fine tuned in accordance with Aprilia's specific indications, is adjustable to 3 levels of sensibility and can be switched off. In order to allow riders with various levels of experience to find the best possible combination, each of the three Cornering ABS maps can be combined with any of the three engine maps (Sport, Track, Race). The latter are all three “full power” and differ in the way they dole out the 175 HP of which the Aprilia V4 is capable, in addition to the percentage of engine brake dedicated to them.
The colour TFT digital instrument cluster boasts exceptional display options and it is capable of managing the user interface required for the intuitive electronic adjustment of the new Tuono V4 1100 Factory's suspension system. The two selectable screen pages (Road and Race, both with night and day backlighting) correspond to as many represented indexes. Aprilia MIA is available as an option. This is the Aprilia multimedia platform that lets you connect your smartphone to the vehicle, introducing a true corner by corner electronic settings calibration system with data that can subsequently be downloaded to your laptop (or displayed directly on the smartphone screen) for analysis, just like they do at the races. The APRILIA MIA system offers a new connection protocol that reduces smartphone battery consumption to a minimum, in addition to providing a larger range of circuits already mapped in which you can manage the electronic settings corner by corner, as well as user acquisition of a new circuit that is not in the list Aprilia has provided. APRILIA MIA includes the infotainment system, introduced by Aprilia for the first time on the Tuono V4, to manage voice commands and incoming/outgoing telephone calls with your smartphone.
The Aprilia V4 with unrivalled performance
The Tuono V4 1100 is the only naked powered by a 65° V4 engine with unique characteristics. The narrow V architecture has made it possible to make an engine that is extremely compact lengthways which helps to centralise weights and to have a compact chassis. The changes made in this evolution of the Italian V4 resulted in an increase in overall reliability and performance, without sacrificing any of the great character and marvellous sound that bikers love so much. The powerplant adopts an exhaust system with a silencer that has a double oxygen sensor and a built in valve. The engine ECU has high calculating capacity and is capable of managing the engine's significant maximum rotation speed. In order to guarantee maximum reliability, decreasing friction at the same time, the piston pins have DLC surface treatment, whereas the connecting rod heads boast a surface honing treatment. The combustion chambers are no longer obtained through a fusion process, but by a finer, numerically controlled mechanical process, whereas the gearbox has a linear sensor that guarantees impeccable gearshift operation.
Top of the line suspension systems and brakes
The new Tuono V4 range fully confirms all the proverbial qualities of handling and stability provided by a frame that is closely derived from that of the Aprilia RSV4, seven-time World Superbike champion, assisted by top of the line braking and suspension systems. The front Brembo braking system comes from the one on the RSV4 and relies on a pair of steel discs with a diameter of 330 mm, gripped by monobloc M50 callipers and activated by a radial master cylinder on the handlebar. Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory has the new Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active electronic suspension system which includes an electronically adjustable steering damper, a high-end fork with semi-active NIX technology and travel extended from 117 mm to 120 mm, as well as a shock absorber that goes to semi-active TTX technology that, compared to the previous mechanically adjusted unit, offers more comfort (with the Road mode) and it is easily adjustable in preload through a convenient hex screw.
