The Tuono story begins in 2002 with Aprilia’s RSV Mille superbike, a large, bruisingly fast sportsbike. Aprilia decided that a naked version of it might be nice. Thunder, they decided to call it, which is Tuono in Italian.
Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Overview : Aprilia is also touting the fact that the 2017 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 uses the same suspension (Sachs) and brakes (Brembo) components as next year’s RSV4 RR, helping draw the connection from track bike to street bike. The Tuono V4 1100 is the most powerful naked motorcycle from Aprilia’s line-up. In fact, there are very few motorcycles in the world that are powerful as this Italian machine. And this is possible due to the marriage of a brilliant updated engine and electronics.
