2011 Aprilia Tuono V4R | Review

Aprilia Tuono

It’s a sunny morning in and I’m at the Ricardo Tormo sipping a coffee while to 20 roaring, V4-powered Aprilia being warmed up in the pit-lane.

One of the Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC is all mine for the day with a dedicated I’m a motorcycle journalist but I’m being treated as a star. It’s about in the morning and I head to the cloakroom to into my leather suit, for action at 9 a.m.

I start my session with the traction set at level six and then reduce by one for lap until I’m down at one. The 2011 Aprilia V4 R is a bit of a shock to the system as it just like an angry bull and stops as if a freight train started pulling it in reverse.

I’ve finished my second session, I’m experiencing arm and a threatening cramp in my left leg time I brake hard. I my mechanic and he adjusts the rear with more preload to the bike moving so much hard braking and also in faster.

This changed the a lot and made my hard riding easier. The Aprilia V4 taken from the RSV4 R superbike the Tuono perfect with an abundance in power and torque. have only de-tuned it and the Tuono is only 13 horsepower of the RSV4 R.

The Tuono is hard work when it hits the revs as I really have to myself forward to avoid after the bike by the handlebar. The munches up all the short straights at the Tormo circuit like else and quickly it seems the circuit is a succession of corners one long start/finish straight.

With the APRC (Aprilia Ride Control) traction I can accelerate early from lean in safety and even on one it feels safe despite nice sliding action out of corners.

The only place on the circuit where there’s room for relaxation is down the but even here the enormous and the wind pushes you back it’s time for hard whilst shifting down the

Later in the day I preferred to short up the quick shifter more to my arms from the strain, it felt like I was going any The three lower gears on the are lower than on the RSV4 R and it can be Due to that great quick I also made my way all the way up to sixth times down the straight.

The clutch is equally good shifting hard down to ahead of the fast left at the end of the straight. Then it’s all throttle and sliding and a little all over again. I liked the immediately but now I start to like the more as well as I’ve out how to relax a little bit more the corners.

The Aprilia Tuono V4 R we ride at the circuit has been with the 200/55-ZR17 Pirelli Corsa rear tyre and clutch and brake levers makes it even better the standard I’m later on the road.

The 200 section rear tire offers so much grip but the brutal Tuono makes of that too given half a Lean angles are absolutely of standard and there’s not much this bike apart the wide handlebars and the lack of a that resembles a streetfighter.

The one and bike I can imagine being to compete morally is the Ducati and that has 17 horsepower less. The MV Brutale is too soft compared to The Tuono V4 R is going to conquer the and I can’t quite see what stop it.

A … Desmosedici but Ducati haven’t got any such yet.

Despite going as as I could or dared the Aprilia V4 R aprc just stays and it’s incredibly safe on the I can’t imagine ever bad mistakes on this bike as it you the rider with pitty and spits back “can’t you me any faster than that?”

The is the choice of those of us that to ride fast on both the and the track and nobody will find this bike It’s testosterone on two wheels and you pronounce testosterone like you say in an Italian accent.

I have ridden any … that as stable or as suited to a race as the Tuono V4R aprc. As soon as the climb towards 10K rpm there’s a tech roaring MotoGP mighty V4 sound exiting the The rev limiter has been set to 12,300 rpm allows for 800 rpm of overrev if needed.

If you like I have tried the superbike you’ll be surprised by how the Tuono mid-range from 7,000 rpm is. The lower gearing in the lower gears just the arm wrenching acceleration and fair that new tall and wide allows for a relaxing ride on the perhaps but on the circuit that V4 makes sure you still get arm exercise.

Truth be told I was bored enough to start big wheelies on the circuit. The Tuono V4 R has everything the RSV4 Factory SE has got so that includes wheelie allowing smooth landings.

Out on the however I fine-tuned the wheelies and not the easiest bike in the world to do so on due to the and sudden explosion of power but I got her down in the end. I had some fun on the by pulling it up by pure power in gear at anything between and just continued as far as I wanted or the would allow. The Tuono is a big wheelie bike.

Traction must be off or you’ll be disappointed as the quickly brings you back to The traction control works by the + or – button on the left of the handlebar whilst on the move.

In the I got to sample all this on the roads the Ricardo Tormo Valencia and now it’s a different story.

I stayed in Track mode for all my around the circuit I now found on a standard Tuono V4 R APRC the 190/55 rear tire, levers and the traction control set to a level and riding mode which reduces the torque in gears.

I played around with the control where I found three to be really good for our in the mountains. It adds a safe of traction control and we never as I ever come close to the very edges of the tires on the ride. Later I changed to one for some wheelie fun and also

Riding hard in the corners traction control set to level one not be sufficient to save a situation gravel and oil so I needed more control for a relatively safe The one and only thing the APRC doesn’t cater for yet are ABS brakes.

no ABS brakes available yet for this from Aprilia but reliable keep telling us that will launch something good to the racing ABS segment I had a couple of moments on the brakes we never reached fast speeds to make brakes and work as well on the road as on the The Tuono V4R aprc is a bit of a handful on the and it’s better to be safe sorry so I recommend people to use the control wisely.

The seat is and not very comfortable so it didn’t too many miles before I a bit wooden in my seat muscles. The is that type of compromise but it is miles more comfortable the RSV4 R superbike must be The Tuono V4R is the roadbike for the rider would otherwise ride a but with a more upright position.

Because I tell you the power and the is there.

The 2011 Aprilia V4R APRC is possibly the most streetfighter type streetbike made. Aprilia have the ante by a large measure. I often feel so good a new motorcycle I have ridden and one never fails to impress.
