For the rider who is looking for any excuse to get on a race bike, this is the one that will do it for you. The 2012 Aprila Tuono V4 will take you beyond your wildest dreams, and you’ll soon be finding any reason to sit in the saddle and take it for a spin, even if you’re just grabbing a coffee; you just want to open the throttle a bit first. It throttles like a superbike, handles like a naked bike, and owns the legacy of performance bike.

The high-performance engine in the Aprila Tuono V4 will have you flying into turns, the balance will keep you low and steady, and the brakes will ensure you can swing around any angle thrown at you. The rider benefits from a riding position tailored to create a relationship between the body and the bike, for unparalleled feedback through the saddle, footpegs and handlebars. On the Tuono V4, the rider sits with less weight on the arms, making the bike less strenuous to ride and extraordinarily nimble and controllable on the road.
