2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR
Aprilia’s Tuono V4 1100 RR is the clear benchmark in the liter-class Streetfighter/naked bike segment. And for 2015 it gets even faster with engine displacement growing to 1077cc. It has a 78cc increase that comes by way of 3 mm larger diameter pistons and the Stroke remains unchanged at 52.3 mm. It still employs its fabulous Aprilia Performance Ride Control software suite, which includes eight-way adjustable (plus ‘off’) wheel spin (traction), wheelie, and launch control. The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR’s chassis also sees a couple of key enhancements highlighted by 0.4-degree sharper steering head angle and a slight reduction in trail also giving it a longer swingarm, the front brake equipment has also been upgraded with a pair of Brembo M432 monobloc calipers biting 320mm diameter cross-drilled stainless-steel discs through stainless-steel hydraulic hoses.
