Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC

The … sports bike? The have come up with special here – a bike just rewards on so many

This is a bike for the ages. I can’t think of another which has provided me with a feel-good experience in the last 15 – at least in a pure road

This refined piece of just rewards on so many – from the tangibles like the V-four engine, superb clutch, magnificent Brembo and the glorious acoustics, to the ability to you feel like a racer extraordinary gifts.

I know, it whimsical, but that’s the type of which this heavyweight (in of performance, not lard) motorcycle upon you.

But it’s a machine that’s up to the challenge of as well as touring and scratching, so really no reason for anyone to it a wide berth – it’s a for all seasons.

And it’s that conformism makes it such a bargain at — complete with the electronics suite that the powershifter, adjustable traction launch control and wheelie The V4R’s opposition, especially the high-end tackle from are not within a bull’s roar of such supreme value for

The Tuono V4R derives from the RSV4R sports bike, as the old Tuono was fashioned from the V-twin sports bike – the one the likes of Troy Corser and Haga used to campaign in Superbike competition.

Actually, the became so synonymous with that it does take time to get your head the fresh ‘V-four’ concept – but not one we’re complaining about.


The Tuono sounds as raspy and sweet as a Ducati RR, the limited-edition road-going version of MotoGP bike.

And how do I know? my good buddy owns one he’s promised me a test one of these days. ) and our timetables to such a degree that we out together for a multi-hour blast the hills – two giants of the road out some very silly

Because that’s what the does so well, it satisfies the especially with a top end that is one big errogenous, creamy zone. It kicks in at 6000rpm, and all you have to do is on playing with the powershifter – cameos from the outstanding clutch – for the head-spinning show to up until the 12,200rpm rev limiter in. Fantastic stuff.

However, the end certainly isn’t as voracious, but the thing is that it does you to catch your breath all the excitement at the upper end of the rev range.

And if in lazy mode, the Tuono’s will certainly put you there, as it has tall gearing for a pure-bred sports bike. It’s just 4200rpm at 100km/h in top where it really is a pussycat – a smooth fly-by-wire throttle surprisingly comfortable seat and that are set well down in the help to make things calming.

First gear is quite too, but that only to tighten up the following ratios – where Aprilia has given the a mandate to really put on a show.

claims 165hp (123kW) at and 111.5Nm at 9500rpm.


Looks? The Tuono adheres to a stance, and all the components blend nicely – which is the hardest to get right on … bikes. the front end doesn’t look as sharp as the rest of the bike, but certainly not offensive.

And it has a really waist, which I like.

The Tuono wedges you up against the in quite an aggressive, fixed with the knees tucked the side of the tank. You’ll like a fighter pilot. the starter, let the V-four clear its release the light-action cable (but non-adjustable for span) and you’re ready to rumble.

But the isn’t a bike which you lose your grip on – that’s the domain of mother like the Triumph Rocket III – as it’s just so polished the board.

The brakes are typical retardation gurus, progressive plenty of potency, and the Tuono has so finesse around corners – yet chassis from the House of that refuses to tie itself knots.

The suspension is stiff, so always bound to be a little bit of jarring. Sure, it may pay to have a around with the compression for some fine-tuning, but I just the feel from the front

It paves the way for unrestricted entry all sort of corners – from to fast. And once committed, the will slice and dice its way with complete authority, driving out with another tap of the

The Tuono’s weight bias is skewed towards the rear, but it doesn’t feel like not enough ‘weight’ on the front And the way the rider is wedged firmly the tank helps to offset any issues.

Riders can toggle the traction control settings on the fly via a switch, with the current visible in the LCD inset. It couldn’t be to use, and there’s no holding down and waiting – which is for when you’re on a challenging of tarmac.

The Tuono’s rubber lose its grip on reality during my ride through the stuff, but I’d love to test it out on a track – where launch and control could also be unfettered running rights

I think you may have guessed the Tuono is an absolute winner. It doesn’t disappoint no matter it’s pilot asks of it. And the is just serene – short at a lower rpm before the punches start to make an impact as the rises at an intoxicating rate.

I was towards a new adventure bike, but now I’m in two again.
