2011 Aprilia Tuono V4

Aprilia has released a whole mess of photos of the brand new 167HP Tuono V4. Derived from the RSV4, the Tuono’s V4 engine shaves pounds off the old model, while adding 41 more HP than the old V-Twin. It also puts out 82 ft-lbs of torque, comes with a whole mess of electronic goodies like traction control, wheelie control, and launch control, and has a curb weight of 402 lbs.

I think it may be a fast bike.

This is just a fraction of the pictures Aprilia released today, but if you want to see more, A&R has the whole bunch of them, plus an irritating promotional video.

The most

  1. Agreed with George. Looks good. A bit laser-fighter for me, these days, but I’m not racing or in my teens anymore. You don’t see a whole lot of v-4s, so that powerplant makes me happy. I’d love to ride one just to know how it feels.
