2018 Aprilia Tuono | V4 1100 Factory Review
The 2018 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 range consists of two models which are categorized by various color schemes and various technical equipment. Tuono V4 1100 RR is present in the market in two color schemes which are GrigioPortimao and Nero Assen, where the Tuono V4 1100’s all-new Superpole graphic has been redesigned in a red and black color scheme.
The Tuono V4 1100 Factory is outstanding technically because of the polished trio of Öhlins suspension systems and stylistically because of its rear fairing which is approved for two-up and brought from the RSV4. The wheel rims are similar for both models and their quality of lightweight accord to a depletion of the gyroscopic effect, all to the benefit of great handling.
The Tuono V4 1100 Factory is shod with the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa which is more sporty, with a wider 200/55 on the rear, in any situation where it is authorized for street use and present for the Tuono V4 RR too which, on the other side, comes as usual with 190/55 on the rear and III tires of Pirelli Diablo Rosso.
2018 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100- Overview
The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 is only mechanized by a 65° V4 engine, with the thin V architecture making it possible to produce an engine that is ultimately close-packed lengthways which unable to centralize weights and to have a close-packed chassis. The differences made in this transformation of the Italian V4 concluded in a rise in total dependability and performance, without losing any of the character and sound that motorcyclists love a lot. The power plant acquires an exhaust system with a silencer that has a built-in valve and a double oxygen sensor.
The engine ECU has the maximum calculating capacity and is capable to control the increase in maximum revs, 500rpm higher than the prior model. In the purpose to guarantee maximum reliability, declining friction at the exact time, the piston pins offers DLC surface treatment, whereas the linking rod heads enhance a surface honing treatment. The combustion chambers are not yet acquired by a fusion procedure, but by a finer, numerically managed mechanical procedure, although the gearbox has a straight sensor that guarantees perfect gearshift operation.
The Tuono V4 range highlights a frame that is exactly determined from that of the Aprilia RSV4, seven-time World Superbike champion, while it introduces the top of the line quality for suspension systems and brakes. The Brembo braking system in the front approaches straightly from the one on the RSV4 and depends on a couple of steel discs with a 330 mm diameter, gripped by monobloc M50 callipers and triggered by a radial master cylinder on the handlebar.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory also has a respectable Öhlins NIX fork with spring preload and hydraulics, which are fully adaptable. This unit preserves about 400 grams compared with the one on the previous series and it is compared with the same brand rear shock absorber (adjustable also) and the steering damper. The Aprilia Tuono V4’s pending electronics, the APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) is the allowed control suite acquired instantly from the winning technology in Superbike world.
The fourth generation of APRC, typical on the Tuono V4 1100, fix the electronic management of the whole Ride-by-Wire throttle, that has permitted all superfluous throttle body electronic management constituents to be removed, reserving 590 grams. The relocating of the inaction platform permits APRC working to have an ideal observation of the effectual conditions of the bike, concluding in systematic electronic control strategies.
The Tuono V4 1100 RR & Tuono V4 1100 Factory APRC consists:
ATC: Aprilia Traction Control, adaptable on the fly (without having to launch the throttle) to 8 settings thanks to a practical joystick which enhances excellently tuned and great performance operating logic.
AWC: Aprilia Wheelie Control, adaptable to 3 levels, has highly accurate operating strategies thanks to the dislocation of the inction platform. Wheelie management can be adapted on the fly without closing the throttle, such as the ATC, thanks to the practical electric block on the justify side.

ALC: Aprilia Launch Control, for utilization on the track only, with 3 settings, utilizes supremely effectual operating strategies.
AQS: Aprilia Quick Shift, the electronic gearbox that permits moving without closing the throttle and without using the clutch, also equipped with the downshift function, to allow clutchless downshifting. Its open-throttle downshifting feature is exclusive.
APL: Aprilia Pit Limiter, the system that lets you select and limit the top speed permitted in pit lane at the track or easy to make it simpler to observe with displayed speed limits on the road.
ACC: Aprilia Cruise Control. The progressive electronic management of the Tuono V4 has permitted cruise control to be released, very suitable on longer trips because it allows you to support the laid speed without even touching the throttle.
The Tuono V4 1100 range is fixed with the progressive multimap Cornering ABS system, evolved in cooperation with Bosch to guarantee top safety on the road, without the sacrifice of any performance on the track. The 9.1 MP system is able to optimize the ABS intervention in corners and braking because of its particular algorithm that consequently monitors several parameters which include sideways acceleration, the force pertained to the front brake lever, pitch, the lean, and yaw angle, regulating the braking action for the improved guarantee and the ratio between stability and deceleration.
The ABS system functions in simultaneously with the Aprilia RLM (Rear Lift up Mitigation) system that restricts the lift of the rear wheel at the time of more sudden braking. Cornering ABS, great tuned as stated in Aprilia’s particular signs, is adaptable to 3 levels of delicacy and can be turned off. In order to permit riders with several levels of experience to look for the top attainable combination, each of the three Cornering ABS maps can be merged with any of the three engine maps (Race, Sport, Track). The hindmost are all three “full power” and vary in the method they benefit out the 175 HP of which the Aprilia V4 is efficient, adding to the percentage of engine brake committed to them.
The color TFT digital instrumentation enhances with unusual display choices. The two choosable screen pages (Race and Road, both with day and night backlighting) parallel to as many constituted indexes.
The V4-MP is also present as a choice. This is the Aprilia multimedia platform that permits you to attach your smartphone to the vehicle, releasing a true side by side electronic settings calibration system along with data that can eventually be installed to your laptop (or showed directly on the screen of a smartphone) for analysis, same as they do at the races.
V4-MP makes an addition a new connection protocol that decreases battery consumption of smartphone to minimal stage, also along with offering a wider range of circuits which are already mapped and which allows you to control the electronic settings corner by corner, also user accession of a new circuit that is not in the list which Aprilia has given. V4-MP consists of the infotainment system, released by Aprilia for the first time on the Tuono V4, to regulate incoming/ outgoing telephone calls and voice commands with your smartphone.
