Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory ( 2018 )
With 294 Grand Prix races won in World Championship GP Motorcycle racing, Aprilia holds the record for the most wins of any European manufacturer in the history of maximum motorcycle competition.
These are joined by an impressive 54 world titles: 38 in World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing (20 in 125 and 18 in 250), 7 in superbike (rider and manufacturer double win in 2010, 2012 and 2014 and manufacturer in 2013) and 9 in off road disciplines (7 in supermoto and 2 in trial).
Technology, innovation: Aprilia has racing in its blood, in its head, in its DNA.
The Tuono’s 65° V4 is a masterpiece of motor engineering that Aprilia enhances with the most cutting-edge electronics: like the new MM 7SM ECU with overclock at 64 MHz. The Ride-by-Wire Multimap technology opens up practically infinite possibilities in terms of power distribution control. To change the “character” of the bike, simply select one of the three available maps:
T – TRACK
Optimum distribution every time you twist the throttle. Sensationally smooth. Fun on the road. Perfect on the track!
S – SPORT
All 175 HP always available, in any condition.
R – RACE
This is the map developed to let you achieve the best lap time: minimum engine brake in deceleration and optimum throttle management.
NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM
The exhaust system has been completely redesigned with double lambda probe and a new silencer with built-in valve. This allows compliance with the new Euro 4 emissions standards while still maintaining the best and unmistakeable performance and thrilling V4 sound.
NEW PIT LIMITER FEATURE
PIT LIMITER: Limits the vehicle speed to within the threshold established by the rider. The system can be activated or deactivated on the fly with the switch on the left-hand grip.
NEW CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE
The new APRC includes electronic cruise control to ensure maximum comfort on the motorway. Cruise control can be used from third to sixth gear. The selected cruising speed can be increased or decreased with a simple touch of the selector. When the throttle grip is released, after acceleration, the bike automatically returns to the set cruising speed. The rider can reactivate the system at any time to either resume the last speed selected or set a new cruising speed.
As standard equipment on the RSV4 RF (optional for the RR) the built-in infotainment system is available:
RIDER/BIKE INTERFACE – TFT dashboard with 4.3” full colour monitor and controls built-in on the handlebar;
PMP 2.0 CONNECTIVITY – for communication with smartphones and/or other Bluetooth devices;
SMARTPHONE MANAGEMENT – with on-screen display of the incoming and missed calls (number and name), as well as the possibility to answer or reject incoming calls. Rider/passenger communication management through handlebar controls. Streaming music from your smartphone or helmet intercom. Smartphone voice command management.
NEW ABS FOR MULTIMAP CORNERING
The ABS system on the TUONO V4 has been completely revamped. It is based on the new BOSCH 9.1 MP unit with extremely contained dimensions and weight. The TUONO V4 is now even safer and has even higher performance:
– more stability
– better deceleration withoutlocking of the wheels
– reduced braking distance in critical situations
The CORNERING function makes its début on the TUONO V4. The system is capable of recognising when the rider brakes hard going into corners and even in this critical situation prevents the wheels from locking up. This way the rider maintains total control over the bike in any braking conditions.
The new cornering ABS system works in unison with the Aprilia RLM (Rear Liftup Mitigation) system that limits the lift of the rear wheel during more abrupt braking and provides maximum safety on the road, but also the best possible performance on the track. Cornering ABS, fine-tuned in accordance with Aprilia’s specific indications, is adjustable to 3 levels of sensibility and can be switched off.
