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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The Tuono sports a longer wheelbase which necessitates a little added muscle to get it to change directions quickly.
- 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.
- 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.
