The Tuono V4 remains the only naked powered by the unique four-cylinder narrow 65° V engine. It may be Euro-5 compliant, but that hasn’t come at the cost of the inimitable sound and famed outstanding performance. With its 175 horsepower at 11,350 rpm and 121 Nm at 9000 rpm, together with the dazzlingly balanced chassis and advanced electronics package, this extraordinary 1077-cc V4 is set to continue to dominate the entire Hypernaked category.

The Factory title is bestowed upon those Aprilia bikes that have proved their mettle on the track and comparative tests around the world. The Tuono V4 Factory continues to push the boundaries and forge ahead of rivals, new and old, that every year try to knock it off the top podium in the class invented by Aprilia.

The Tuono V4 is no slouch either in the speed department, but with new ergonomics and specially-designed accessories, it is the perfect companion for touring and adventures near and far.

With six Riding Modes, three each for both road and track, riders simply need to select the preferred setting and parameters such as Traction Control, Wheelie Control, ABS and the engine brake will be automatically adjusted to deliver the mode selected.

The new generation APRC, a control systems suite derived from the race world, is integrated with Ride-by-Wire throttle control, while electronic settings for Cruise Control and Traction Control are easier than ever to manage thanks to handy new buttons on the handlebars.

The new design puts the focus on ergonomics with a new fuel tank, and the seat lowered by 9 mm, increasing spaciousness and creating a more comfortable fit with the fairing and a more natural and relaxed riding position, even for taller riders.

The Tuono V4 Factory leaves you in little doubt that it is all about thrills, adrenalin and pure unadulterated fun. Designed for the most demanding riders, who aren’t shy about hitting the track, it comes a standard component that is anything but standard, in the form of Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension.
