Not your average naked bike.

Make it light and make it fast. A combination of lightweight componentry whipped down the tarmac by a 1,077cc V-4 engine makes the Aprilia Tuono 1100 a pure adrenaline pumper. The Tuono’s connection to the venerable RSV4 open-class superbike is what elevated it above the competition a couple of years ago—staking a firm claim as Cycle World’s Best Standard for two consecutive years (2017 and 2018). With a suite of electronics, premium braking, top-shelf suspension, and cream-of-the-crop V-4, this naked sets the bar just barely in reach for the competition.

2020 Aprilia Tuono 1100 Factory/1100 RR Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

The Tuono 1100 RR’s claim of the 2017 and 2018 Cycle World Best Standard Bike proves it can stand up to some fierce competition with a raucous V-4 engine, and when the throttle is whacked open “the Tuono V-4 is one of the most thrilling experiences in motorcycling.”

The Aprilia Tuono’s competition is right in its own backyard with the Ducati Streetfighter, but other standard bikes that serve a challenge include the Yamaha MT-10, BMW S 1000 R, and KTM 1290 Super Duke R.
