FOR THE FASTEST AND SPORTIEST NAKED EVER, A DIRECT DESCENDANT OF THE
SUPERB RSV4, FOUR TIME WORLD SBK CHAMPION, A NEW EVOLUTIONARY STEP HAS ARRIVED
ALLOWING EXCEPTIONAL LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE TO BE ACHIEVED. THE NEW,
SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC MANAGEMENT NOW INCLUDES AN ADVANCED DYNAMIC
CONTROLS PACKAGE WITH APRC, CORNERING ABS, PIT LIMITER AND CRUISE
THE INIMITABLE 175 HP V4 EARNS EURO 4 APPROVAL, WITHOUT SACRIFICING ANY OF
ITS SUPERB PERFORMANCE, IMPROVED SUSPENSION AND BRAKES.
Simply unrivalled, now more than ever. The Aprilia naked range, heir to a family of motorcycles
which has been voted over time as one of the most adrenaline pumping and exciting bikes ever,
achieves absolute performance levels and sophistication thanks to Aprilia’s know-how acquired
over years of winning premier level competitions and the experience of the Tuono history, which is
thus confirmed as the only superbike stripped down and fitted with a high handlebar, unbeatable
on the track and loads of fun on the road. The Tuono V4 family of motorcycles is made up of two
distinct models. Tuono V4 1100 RR represents an exceptional thrill machine, the heir to
a dynasty of naked sport bikes acclaimed by critics as the most effective and fastest bike in its
segment. Tuono V4 1100 Factory is the more exclusive version, dedicated to an extremely
demanding public; this bike is equipped with components which are largely derived from the Aprilia
RSV4 RF superbike. The evolutionary step that Aprilia presents for 2018 involves both models
that, as before, therefore continue to stand out for their factory outfitting and the graphics.
A completely revised electronics package
The greatest innovations have to do with the Aprilia Tuono V4’s on board electronics, that has
always been considered as the “best in class”, where the APRC system stands out. Aprilia
Performance Ride Control is the patented control suite derived directly from the winning technology
in World Superbike, the most complete and refined of those available on the market. The fourth
generation of APRC, standard on the Tuono V4 1100, fits in perfectly with the fine electronic
management of the new full Ride-by-Wire throttle, that has allowed all superfluous throttle body
electronic management components to be eliminated, thereby saving 590 grams. The
repositioning of the inertial platform that allows APRC operation has improved accurate
detection of the dynamic conditions of the bike, resulting in more efficient electronic control
The Tuono V4 1100 RR and Tuono V4 1100 Factory APRC include:
New ATC: Aprilia Traction Control, adjustable on the fly, (without having to release the throttle) to 8 settings thanks to a practical joystick, now has even more fine tuned and higher performance operating logic.
New AWG: Aprilia Wheelie Control, adjustable to 3 levels, has new, much more precise operating strategies thanks to the repositioning of the inertial platform. Wheelie control can now be adjusted on the fly without closing the throttle, like the ATC, thanks to the new and
more practical left side switch gear.
New ALC: Aprilia Launch Control, for use on the track only, with 3 settings, uses even more effective new operating strategies.
New AQS: Aprilia Quick Shift, the electronic gearbox that allows shifting without closing the throttle and without using the clutch, now with the downshift function as well, to allow clutchless downshifting. Its open throttle downshifting feature is exclusive.
New APL: Aprilia Pit Limiter, the system that lets you select and limit the top speed allowed in pit lane at the track or simply to make it easier to comply with posted speed limits on the road.
New ACC: Aprilia Cruise Control. The new electronic management allows an advanced cruise control system to be introduced, fantastic on longer trips because it lets you maintain the set speed without touching the throttle.
The new Tuono V4 1100 range is fitted with the advanced multimap Cornering ABS system,
developed in collaboration with Bosch to guarantee maximum safety on the road, without
sacrificing any performance on the track. The 9.1 MP system, light weight and compact, is able to optimize braking and the ABS intervention in corners, thanks to a specific algorithm that constantly monitors various parameters such as lateral acceleration, the pressure applied to the front brake lever, the lean, pitch and yaw angle, modulating the braking action in order to better guarantee the ratio between deceleration and stability. The new 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.
Cornering ABS, fine tuned in accordance with Aprilia’s specific indications, is adjustable to 3 levels of sensibility and can be switched off ln order to allow riders with various levels of experience to find the best possible combination, each of the three Cornering
ABS maps can be combined with any of the three new engine maps (Sport, Track, Race). The
latter are all three “full power” and differ in the way they dole out the 175 HP of which the Aprilia V4 is capable, in addition to the percentage of engine brake dedicated to them.
Colour TFT display, datalogging and Social media!
The colour TFT digital instrumentation with exceptional display options. The two selectable screen pages (Road and Race, both with night and day backlighting) correspond to as many represented indexes. There is an optional new version of the V4-MP, the Aprilia multimedia platform that enables you to connect your smartphone to the bike, introducing a true corner by corner electronic settings calibration system with data that can subsequently be downloaded to your laptop (or displayed directly on the smartphone screen) for analysis, just like they do at the races. The new V4-MP adds a new connection protocol that reduces smartphone battery consumption to a minimum, in addition to providing a larger range of circuits already mapped in which you can manage the electronic settings corner by corner, as well as user acquisition of a new circuit that is not on the list Aprilia has provided. V4-MP includes the new infotainment system, introduced by Aprilia for the first time on the new Tuono V4, to manage voice commands and incoming/outgoing telephone calls with your smartphone.
A Euro 4 compliant engine with the same exhilarating performance
The Tuono V4 1100 is the only naked powered by a 65’V4 engine with unique characteristics. The narrow V architecture has made it possible to create an engine that is extremely compact lengthways which helps to centralise weight and to have a compact chassis. The changes made in this evolution of the ltalian V4 not only resulted in earning Euro 4 approval, but also in increasing overall reliability and performance, without sacrificing any of the great character and marvellous sound we love so much. The powerplant earns a new exhaust system with a silencer that has a double oxygen sensor and a built in valve. The engine ECU is new, with superior calculating capacity able to manage the increase in maximum revs, now 500 rpm higher. ln order to guarantee maximum reliability, decreasing friction at the same time, the piston pins have DLC surface treatment, whereas the connecting rod heads boast a surface honing treatment. The
combustion chambers are no longer obtained through a fusion process, but by a finer, numerically controlled mechanical process, whereas the gearbox now has a linear sensor that guarantees impeccable gearshift operation.
Suspension and brakes taken from the RSV4
lf, on one hand, the new Tuono V4 range fully confirms all the proverbial qualities of handling and
stability stemming from a frame that is closely derived from that of the Aprilia RSV4 World Superbike champion, on the other, it introduces important news in the braking and suspension departments. The front Brembo braking system comes directly from the one on the new
RSV4 and relies on a pair of new steel discs that have been increased to 330 mm, gripped by the new monobloc M50 calipers and activated by a radial master cylinder on the handlebar.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory also has prestigious Ohlins NIX forks, with fully adjustable hydraulics and spring preload. This unit saves about 400 grams compared with the previous one and is combined with the Ohlins rear shock and steering damper (both also adjustable)
Versions and colours for 2018
The new Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 range includes two models distinguished by different technical equipment and different colour schemes: Tuono V4 1100 RR is available in two attractive colour schemes, grigio Portimao and nero Assen, whereas the Superpole graphic of the Tuono V4 1100 Factory has that decidedly non-conformist spirit so typical of the Aprilia stylistic tradition that demands bright and very distinctive colours.
Tuono V4 1100 Factory stands out technically because of the most refined trio of Ohlins suspension systems and stylistically because of its beautiful tail fairing (approved for two-up) derived from the RSV4.
The cast aluminium wheel rims are the same for both models: their lightweight quality contributes to a maximum reduction of the gyroscopic effect, all to the advantage of great handling.
Tuono V4 1100 Factory is shod with the more sporty Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa, with a wider 200/55 on the rear, in any case approved for street use and available for the Tuono V4 RR as well which, on the other hand, comes standard with a 190/55 on the rear and new Pirelli Diablo Rosso lll tyres.
