Aprilia Tuono Factory (2004 — 2010)

for those who aren’t from stock, is a cow that has its balls cut off at This causes the poor to become gentler in temperament, beefier (if you excuse the pun) and moo in A bull, on the other hand, has its dangly bits in place and it a raging temper, big muscles, a to hump anything in sight and an to anything red.

A Japanese bike is a bullock. It has the same as a bull, but its performance has been and it now has weight issues. Aprilia’s is a bull, full of beefy (or the bovine equivalent), brimming aggression and ready for a fight.

And the new Tuono Factory? This is an angry bull on steroids.

the previous high spec — the Racing — the new is basically a stock Tuono a few trick bits on it. The suspension is front and rear, wheels are OZ units and there’s a smattering of The engine is a 2007 RSV-R which has bigger exhaust and makes 6bhp more before. The net result is a claimed and a weight of 181kg, a saving of

Oh, it also gets a bronze frame.

As with the RSV-R and the actual differences between the suspension and stock bike’s forks and Sachs shock that apparent on the road. The is certainly more compliant bumps and consistent in feel, isn’t that surprising as the unit on Aprilias is notoriously performing, but there is little to the front ends. What has the most significant difference is the of the lightweight wheels and a new rear choice.

In the UK Tuonos were sold 190-section rear tyres as and optional 180-section; the Factory with standard 180-section Supercorsa Pro tyres. Okay, on the of it this may not sound like a of a difference, but this small has a big effect on the handling, and especially combined with the lighter

According to Aprilia the OZ wheels are lighter than the stock and with the taller profile tyre the Factory certainly into corners faster. is both a blessing and curse. higher speed bends the new set-up makes the Tuono far more willing to change but come the slower bends it can be an

The test route that chose for us to ride involved a of low speed, first gear Although the Tuono Factory was than happy to drop its side for these corners, it did so a bit of an unnerving flop. As anyone who has a Tuono will tell it’s quite a top heavy and always has a slight tendency to into slow corners, so wasn’t too much of a surprise, but it did unnerve slightly.

On more than one occasion I had to the bike up slightly because it like the front had let go. To be fair to there aren’t that occasions when your rider will find knee down in first especially on the road, and I’d have the faster high response that the tyres

As with the 2006 RSV-R the Aprilia has made to the Tuono engine are basically to meet new restrictions. Compared to the old motor the new one slightly smoother through the rev (highlighted by it being easier to a wheelie), but the fuel injection perfect. Again, this was noticeable on the low speed hairpins, but from a closed to slightly throttle did result in a slight as opposed to smooth power

It seems that almost new bike comes with snatch, such is the effect of laws on fuel injection, but has had the sense to include a second map on the Tuono’s ECU. Like the if you put a set of race cans on the Tuono is no need to get it re programmed, just get dealer to swap to Aprilia’s map. The whole concept the Tuono is an aggressive street that thrills riders.

aren’t easy to live it’s a full-on … bike with few compromises. refuse to de-tune the RSV-R soften the chassis or even it a decent steering lock. the call you make as a buyer.

Gentle practicality? Go Japanese. speed thrills? Go Aprilia.
