2007 Aprilia Tuono R: Ride Impression

Submitted by Johnston on Wednesday, 22 August 3 Comments

Flashback; imagine back in grade school, your first mountain with the big wide handlebars and the seat. Remember the ease which it handled and how much fun you had down the hills. Recollect

the big on your face, the wind in teeth, the adrenaline you felt and the of your heart pumping as you the barriers that once you back. Remember all that… now add

Suddenly you’re on a hungry, tamed lion of a machine.  no less of a grin, adrenaline or pumping going on, and a SIGNIFICANT in speed.  I lied… there’s a LOT adrenaline courtesy of a 2007 Tuono needle plunged to the heart.

My normal mounts are a GSX-R 1000 or an Aprilia but offered up the temptation of a Tuono R with Akrapovic slip-ons, one dropped in the front sproket, and a remapping of the fuel injection and for racing how could I refuse?

The engine is the same one found in the RSV and is still full of torque. around 4-5k the world around you resonating with the And torque is a mere twitch of the away, as are the wheelies.

Praise for not seeing a … bike as a to “neuter” an engine… and in the case of plant that’s been opened up?  Sportbikes

Then there’s the handling, the for a youthful flashback.  She tips in such extreme ease, I myself oversteering for the first few of my ride. The Aprilia RSV1000, on the Tuono is based, has always exceptionally easy to corner, but the extra leverage you have the raised bars on the Tuono it a mere thought.

The test ride took us the Vancouver Island Coastal providing a good sampling of passing and straightaway acceleration. The well, she held up her end of the bargain passing with ease, nay a downshift needed.

On the straights I her up to 200 km/h with a big grin, thrust between the handlebars and on. Oh, she could easily go further little effort, but the lacks of results in phenomenal wind on your helmet and upper demanding that you crouch low and rest your head on the cluster.

The GSX-R 1000 by at 260 km/h. Pffft. He has a windscreen.

The high-speed corners are stable, and easy to negotiate.  Again, the leverage with the big bars tipping into the corners easy, while like on the she corners on rails.  No second needed whatsoever.

Braking, as with the RSV, is a operation. The monstrous Brembos, are to decelerate a race bike 300 safely and surely, thus a handful at 100 will result in results.  My first day on an Aprilia taught me how to trust the binders away, with a hint of Use one finger to bring you to a comfortable and stop.

  Two in emergency stops,

The Tuono actually has a viable brake. Being a … this baby dissipates the that would render the useless on the RSV. I admit to not use the back brake more once.


The suspension, tuned to your own body, is sweet. At one point we crested a and caught some air. The came back to earth attitude of a supermoto. No tank or private smashing.

Just pure fun.

on an aggressive … like the the lack of a stock steering is a negative. Especially with the bars where slight can cause overcompensation, and a weight that removes some from the front. I put an Ohlins on my RSV and I would do the same on the Tuono.

The cluster could use a re-design.  off the LCD screen is very hard to in the direct sunlight. It also a distracting number of readouts on the screen too, and I found searching for numbers too much.

also no getting around being a true … despite the relatively large Admittedly, I enjoy the warmth and of full fairing bikes so is not a con, but a preference. Thinking to the fall and winter you’ll extra layers, whereas the RSV right up.

But there is a balance to be found in the The seat height allowed me to foot this bike at something I cannot do on my RSV, at 5’11″. The comfort of the upright position is a marvel for someone who on full race style

This bike would be for around town trips I couldn’t otherwise enjoy on the Plus seating position your body weight centrally on the bike, which wheelies virtually unavoidable – a

It’s tempting to put the 2007 Tuono 1000 R in my stable, I’d enjoy having her there. perfect for local trips and road trips, keeping up and surpassing most of the sportbikers. At the end of the day you dismount without the wrist, and back aches they experience.

The power and controlled hysteria of the packaged in this beautiful makes the Tuono very to resist.

I think I want DOH!
