Aprilia Tuono 1000R Factory 2009: black
The Aprilia Tuono is a naked motorcycle manufactured by Aprilia from 2002. It is based on the Aprilia RSV Mille. Its successor, the Aprilia RSV1000R superbike shares its engine, gearbox, frame and, partly, its suspension. The Tuono was succeeded by the Aprilia Tuono V4 R for model year 2011, though the V2 model continued in production into the 2011 model year.
The current Aprilia Tuono is designed as a streetfighter with a lot of electronic aids such as multi level traction control, ABS, Wheelie control, launch control and AQS(Aprilia Quick Shift electronic System). Since 2002, a lot of changes have been made but the basic character of the bike almost remains the same.
Following the 2001 Bologna Motor Show, the Aprilia Tuono made its debut in a series of 220 individually numbered bikes. Called the Tuono R Limited and in hindsight being a proof of concept for the future RSV Tuono Factory, it had the 94.9 kW (129.0 PS; 127.3 hp) engine of the RSV Mille R, a gold colored frame and was built solely out of high end materials such as carbon fiber, kevlar and titanium. Specs included Öhlins Racing suspension, OZ forged alloy wheels, Brembo 4-pad brake calipers and an Aprilia Racing titanium exhaust system with matching EEPROM.
