2014 Aprilia Tuono V4 R ABS Comparison Photo Gallery
The Aprilia Tuono V4R’s chassis blew us away. Not only does it work great at a sporting pace, it’s plenty comfortable at a more casual speed.
How will the Tuono V4 R ABS fare against the competition? Check out the 2014 Aprilia Tuono V4 R ABS Comparison photo gallery and read the review in the
2014 Four-Cylinder Streetfighter Shootout
for the full run-down.
Aprilia’s Tuono V4R comes standard with wheelie control which helps keep the height and duration of wheelies in check. All of its electronic countermeasures can be easily disabled.

The Tuono sports a longer wheelbase which necessitates a little added muscle to get it to change directions quickly.
Value-wise it’s hard to argue against how much motorcycle and performance you get for the Tuono’s $14,499 asking price.
The heart of the Tuono is provided by a 999cc water-cooled V-Four that is only slightly modified from the production RSV4 sportbike. It produced the most peak horsepower and the best overall sound and character.
The Tuono V4R ABS brings true track-grade performance to the street. If you’re looking for the baddest Streetfighter the Tuono is it.
The Tuono’s ABS system is well calibrated for road and track use. Its braking hardware however wasn’t quite up to spec with the Brutale 1090 RR or S1000 R.
Once you figure out the menu system, the Aprilia’s electronics are pretty easy to adjust. However, the instrument display is starting to look dated now.
