I’ve just into the Valencia pit lane my first session on the Tuono and handed the bike to the waiting I muttered a brief grazie and into the garage on a wave of barely capable of coherent after 20 minutes aboard one of the most outrageously exciting I’ve ever ridden.

Aprilia’s new generation Tuono was going to be a weapon. After stripping the fairing off the machine ran away with last World Superbike Championship was to create a seriously capable bike.

The key to the Tuono’s brilliance is the way engineers undertook the project the same dedication and willingness to that they brought to the project a few years ago. time they already had the of course. The 998cc, 16-valve V4 has returned for low-end power, extra torque below rpm and a 13-horse reduction at the top for a claimed 167 bhp at 11,500 rpm-1000 rpm earlier the RSV4R’s peak.

The sophisticated APRC (Aprilia Ride Control) system on the RSV4 Special Edition is as an option on the Tuono. As before it a quick-shifter plus traction which is recalibrated to give a of softer levels for use on slippery There’s also adjustable and wheelie control.

With the traction control set in the second setting, I could occasionally the system kick in to warn I was the limit of the rear Pirelli’s Valencia’s traditional slot as the Grand Prix circuit I’ve ridden some machinery here, including bikes and World Superbikes. Yet I I lapped much quicker on than on this stunningly yet forgiving roadster.

The Tuono’s V4 engine has new cams and intake trumpets for improved power. There’s also a crankshaft and revised gear for first through third.
