> Aprilia Tuono V4R
The Aprilia Tuono V4R is an evil looking high-performance sports bike
which is basically the unfaired version of the Aprilia RSV4 R.
The Aprilia Tuono V4R boasts power never before installed on a factory
naked bike, obtained by reconfiguring the RSV4 Factory APRC SE four
The Tuono V4R uses features from the Special Edition including the
new exhaust system with bypass valve, which is two kilos lighter than
the system used on the RSV4 R, and latest generation Ride by Wire
Differences from its race track sibling are closer spacing between
the first three gear ratios, and a maximum torque output of 110 Nm
on tap 1,000 rpm lower.
The Aprilia Tuono V4R features the same tail fairing, saddle, tank
and side panels as Aprilia's WSBK racing machine.
The Tuono V4R uses the second generation version of Aprilia's APRC
(Aprilia Performance Ride Control) joystick - an electronic dynamics
control package developed by Aprilia to get as close as possible to
the physical limits of riding. APRC is based on an automotive inertia
sensor platform, with two gyrometers and two accelerometers allowing
the ECU to determine the dynamic state of the motorcycle and control
engine torque accordingly to help the rider exploit the full performance
potential of the bike in all conditions.
The Aprilia Tuono V4R also features a range of top-spec chassis components,
including a Brembo brake system with radial callipers and 320 mm floating
discs at the front (220 mm at the rear), aluminium wheels with an
all-new design weighing 2 Kg less than those on the RSV4R, Sachs upside
down front fork with 43 mm stanchions coated with titanium nitride
for reduced friction, and Sachs shock absorber with separate piggy
back nitrogen canister featuring adjustable spring preload, compression
and rebound damping and length, to modify the setup of the bike to
suit different riding styles or for when carrying a pillion.
