2011 Aprilia Tuono Review


The 2011 Aprilia Tuono is available in the 1000 R and the newly introduced V4 R. The new V4 line is now available in overseas markets. The V4 shares a frame with the RSV 4 superbike. It has improved on the superbike, however, to claim success in its attempt to be the most powerful street naked on the market. The Aprilia Tuono 1000 R is available with 79 lb-ft of torque and a V Twin engine that is slightly larger than the engine in a motorcycle of the same size. However, the overall weight of the motorcycle is slightly less than competitors at the same level. Ratings for this bike are better than average in all aspects but offroad, where the ratings come in just at average. Some of the top-rated features for this bike include performance on a racing track, value for the money spent and the sheer fun of spending some time on the roads on a 2011 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R.

Aprilia motorcycles are known for their performance and longevity, and the 2011 Aprilia Tuono is no exception. It is reliable and runs neck-and-neck with its closest competitors. It is a great all-around bike for various types of riders.
