2017 Aprilia Tuono 1100 Factory, RSV4RR, and RS125 – Video
Aprilia has updated its Tuono V4 1100 RR and V4 1100 Factory with a new electronics package, bigger brakes, a Euro 4-compliant engine, and on the Factory model, a RSV4-culled Öhlins’ NIX fork. One of the things we’ve always loved about the Tuono is how it’s basically an RSV4 sans fairing/plus one-piece handlebar, and it looks like Aprilia is now only trying to make that connection stronger.
Both Tuonos come with a three-level-adjustable Cornering ABS system developed in collaboration with Bosch, plus three new engine maps—Sport, Track, and Race—that vary only in how they put the Tuono’s trouble-loving 175 hp to the ground.
According to the press release, “the Aprilia RS 125’s new look takes its inspiration from the shapes and colors of its multiple title winning older sister, the protagonist in World SBK, an aggressive and original look that is highlighted by the triple headlight, a trademark of the most victorious bike of recent years. The sleek fairing enhances the exclusive aluminum frame, an entirely racing-inspired refinement that that no competitor can claim.”
