Compared to more traditional, fully-covered sports bikes, the Aprilia Tuono V4 seems too strong, powerful, and muscled. It gives the impression that the motorcycle is more muscular than it is. The bike’s modern aesthetic design is enough to win over any sceptic.
The inspiration for the new design of the Tuono V4 came from the RS 660. It has a double fairing with an aerodynamic appendix, a new triple LED light configuration with daytime running lights that combine “bending lights,” and other details that give the bike a sleek look.
The colour scheme of the 17.9-litre fuel gauge is pleasing to the eye and gives an elegant and imposing look.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 has an Airbox-design fuel system with variable-speed intakes up front.
Aprilia designed an elegant frame for Tuono V4. The parts of the aluminium dual-beam chassis are made of pressed and cast sheet metal. The SmartEC 2.0 Sachs steering damper is a type of Ohlins damper that is controlled by electronics.
