Aprilia Tuono Racing is a track-ready factory racer, a road bike
with a lust for the bends and curbing of the race track, the most
sporting street fighter on the market.
Aprilia’s policy of producing machines with an unbeatable
quality/price ratio has already made the RSV Mille R superbike
replica a number one hit with the motorcycling press and sports
riders the world over. This latest version of Aprilia’s
acclaimed street fighter is the logical continuation of this same
policy. The Tuono Racing is more than just the latest addition
to the Aprilia range of prestige racers. The Tuono Racing is the
world’s first real naked superbike - and more.
The Tuono Racing is homologated for road use but comes with a
competition performance kit included in the price. Because the
Tuono has always had the soul of a racer. This Racing configuration
just brings out the already awesome potential of the chassis and
engine of this incredible machine. You simply must ride the new
Tuono Racing to appreciate the sort power and handling that this
bike delivers under even the most extreme conditions.
has not forgotten the Tuono’s road vocation either. On the
contrary, absolutely top quality components (the Tuono Racing
is the only naked equipped with radial calliper brakes) and prestige
materials (all carbon bodywork) make the Tuono Racing a bike to
be seen; a bike to be desired.
Your Tuono Racing will cause a sensation wherever you go. Mountain
bends, city centres and seaside resorts are all home to the Tuono.

injection mapping is basically the same as on the RSV 1000 R 2003,
with a couple of modifications to make it even more suitable for
the Tuono Racing. But then, 130 horsepower at 9,500 RPM and a
maximum torque of 101 Nm at 7,250 RPM speak clearly enough. These
figures translate into tremendous flexibility, instant response,
and incredible riding sensations. On the track you really can
see 245 kilometres an hour appearing on the speedometer; a result
achievable only with an impeccable engine and chassis.
The rear suspension is a professional Öhlins Racing unit
too. The monoshock unit with piggy back nitrogen cylinder provides
adjustments for rebound, compression, preload and even length,
so that the rear end of the bike can be raised or lowered to match
road or track type, rider preferences and the overall suspension
set-up. Because the Tuono Racing is a serious racer in every way.
Only the fairing has been left off.
