RideApart Review: Aprilia V4R

Take the traditional streetfighter — no fairing, upright bars — and it to one of the fastest, most technologically superbikes ever made — the RSV4. What do you get? Aprilia Tuono V4R.

thing is an absolute monster.

New :

The Aprilia Tuono V4R is an absolute of a motorcycle. 168bhp in a … is just ridiculous and takes concentration and commitment to get anywhere full throttle.

Unlike other … bikes, it is just a superbike shorn of its Same frame, save V4, same suspension (as the RSV4 R). The downgrades come in the form of Brembo radial brake and slightly heavier wheels.

The retains Aprilia Performance Control. the most sophisticated set of aiding electronics yet. includes user-configurable traction wheelie control, quickshift and launch control; it really help you ride faster,

What’s Good :

The Pirelli Rosso Corsa tires on this beautiful black and that ugly yellow one we with show significant of tearing, indicating that the I’m feeling aren’t just in my imagination. That I (a long from being a rider of caliber) am comfortable ringing so performance out of such a fast on the road, is perhaps the best endorsement of APRC’s efficacy.

control? Well, riding a former racer two nights the Tuono easily walked from his Z1000, simply down its power in situations the Z1000 would just its front. It’s not that the won’t wheelie, it’s that the front end comes up much later than expect with wheelie switched on.

Switch it off and you can pull roll-on wheelies simply by opening the in 4th gear at 100mph. Just ask of the drivers on the La Brea on-ramp to 10 around 7pm last Thursday.

Of the bike you see here isn’t instead serving as a rolling bed for the brand’s own “Aprilia Racing”

Complete with Aprilia’s engine mapping, the Akrapovic noticeably smooths out power even where the stock is already very, very It’s no louder than either, while ditching a amount of weight and losing the converter. The stock pipe on Tuono and the new RSV4 is unbelievably straight from the showroom.

The “Aprilia Racing” mirrors and aren’t a big deal, but both are super high quality and really nice to use.

The TTX36 shock is predictably the change. Honestly, I think it more than TC as it actively traction rather than limiting slides. If you want to a Tuono or RSV4, spend first.

What’s Bad :

In transition fully-faired race replica to …, the Tuono has lost of the planted feeling of the RSV4’s end. Credit that to a shift in the rider’s weight front to rear due to those comfy, high bars. not a huge difference, but leads to confidence in the front end while on the limit.

I had a pretty significant front-end while filming that looked more dramatic to behind me than it felt onboard. It’s a credit to how those tires and the Tuono’s are that it didn’t feel catching the slide on my knee was a deal.

What Others Say :

flogging the Tuono through miles of extremely technical I realized that I wasn’t physically worked like I have been on most any machine at that same The relaxed sporting ergos, controls, nimble handing, electronics and stirring exhaust put me in a zone that made me anatomically connected to the Tuono.” —

“…as you’d have a to expect, this breathed on V4R was magnificent around Valencia. difficult to see how many non-streetfighter could have been quicker, as it was turning sharply and heeling over smoothly and and remaining stable even the brakes trying to strip the from the front tyre and the clutch desperately shedding torque.” — Kevin Ash

With a price newly from $14,999 to $12,999, the is something of a bargain. Ducati no sells the less-powerful, less-capable 1098, but even the smaller 848 comes in at $300 more the Aprilia.

The $10,999, 136bhp Z1000 is cheaper, but noticeably in a straight line and would be for … in corners, where its suspension quality and ground are sub par.

And then you start comparing the to less comfortable liter the cheapest of which, the GSX-R1000. $13,799, makes about the power and comes with quality brakes and suspension. And no

An exotic brand, a hugely V4, good suspension, all-day and the best electronic rider out there? This Aprilia is a
