Aprilia Tuono V4 1100

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - Wheels -

One of our fa­vorite naked sport­bikes is get­ting a larger en­gine and more power as Pi­ag­gio pulled the wraps off the new 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100. Pi­ag­gio will ac­tu­ally pro­duce two ver­sions, the stan­dard Tuono V4 1100 RR and the up­graded Tuono V4 1100 Fac­tory. Un­en­cum­bered by rac­ing ho­molo­ga­tion en­gine lim­its, the Tuono V4 1100 sports a 1077cc V-4 en­gine, achieved by in­creas­ing the RSV4-based en­gine’s stroke by 3mm to 81 mm. Ac­cord­ing to Aprilia, the larger en­gine puts out 175 hp at 11,000 rpm, up from the pre­vi­ous Tuono’s 170 hp. More im­pres­sively, Aprilia says the new Tuono gets an 20 hp more at 8000 rpm than the pre­vi­ous model. Torque has also in­creased to a claimed 88.5 lb-ft., with an up­grade over low and medium rpms. The Tuono of­fers three se­lectable ride modes with the re­turn­ing Track and Sport modes a new full-power Road mode re­plac­ing the pre­vi­ous model’s limited-power map. Aprilia’s APRC elec­tron­ics pack­age re­turns, of­fer­ing trac­tion con­trol, wheelie con­trol, launch con­trol and elec­tronic quick­shift. The trac­tion con­trol sys­tem has been fur­ther re­fined ad­just­ing the amount of slip­page al­lowed based on the speed of a turn. The sys­tem has eight set­tings, se­lectable by a joy­stick on the left han­dle­bar with­out hav­ing to re­lease the throt­tle. The wheelie con­trol sys­tem has three set­tings with a sportier Map 1 set­ting. The alu­minum dual beam frame is de­rived from the RSV4, bal­anc­ing tor­sional stiff­ness and flex­i­bil­ity. The head­stock an­gle was changed to 24.7° from 25.1° while the trail was re­duced to 3.9 inches from 4.2 inches to im­prove agility. The er­gonomics have also changed, with a nar­rower han­dle­bar and the seat low­ered about half an inch to 32.5 inches. 110414-2015-aprilia-tuono-v4-1100-fac­to­ry03The RR model comes equipped with a 43mm Sachs fork and rear shock with ad­justable com­pres­sion, re­bound and spring preload. The Fac­tory model gets up­graded to Oh­lins sus­pen­sion and adds an Oh­lins steer­ing damper. Brembo sup­plies its M432 monobloc ra­dial-mount calipers with sin­tered pads grip­ping dual 320mm front discs (stain­less steel for the RR model while the Fac­tory ver­sion gets flanged alu­minum discs). A Brembo two-pis­ton caliper is paired with the 220mm rear disc. The Tuono also comes stan­dard with a three-level Bosch 9MP anti-lock brake sys­tem with rear wheel lift-up mit­i­ga­tion
