Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Overview
The naked streetfighter concept came about after people riding faired bikes that had had falls reverted to some good old fashioned ingenuity and replaced the cracked and broken fairings on their expensive bikes with minimalist lighting and turn indicators. Auto manufacturers were quick to latch on to this idea and thus was born the streetfighter category of motorcycle. The Aprilia Tuono V4R ABS is one such offering from the Aprilia stables. Featuring the underpinnings of the legendary Aprilia RSV4 with bare minimalist fairing, this naked beauty has pulled more than its fair share of fans towards itself.
Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Engine & Transmission
Mechanically identical to the classic V4 layout engine on the RSV4 the engine on the Tuono V4R is a unit bristling with technology and other features. This gem of an engine manages to silence even the most critical of riders purely on the basis of performance alone. The Tuono V4R can credit all its performance to the classic 999.6 cc engine with bore X stroke of 78 X 52.3 mm and compression ratio of 13: 1 that produces 170 hp @ 11,500 rpm in terms of peak power and 111.5 NM of torque @ 9,500 rpm. The Tuono is probably the only road going naked streetfighter today that gets a unique V4 engine layout alongwith advanced electronics and ride-by-wire, something that was quite new and unique for Aprilia when they launched it earlier. Coming from a rich racing history via the legendary RSV4, the bike has a host of innovative engine features that makes it worth every penny you spend on the bike. The longitudinally mounted four stroke liquid cooled unit with DOHC and four valves per cylinder makes the claimed performance figures very much probable. Mated to the engine is a slick shifting 6 speed cassette type gearbox that makes life interesting for an Aprilia rider.
