New motorcycle items for 2022
Aprilia has brought the Tuono V4 models to Euro 5 level.
There are updates in terms of chassis, aerodynamics and electronics.

The front fairing with LED headlights and cornering lights is based on the 660 Tuono.
There is a new TFT display in the cockpit.
The Tuono’s entire arsenal of active driving safety systems has also been refreshed. The basis for this is the higher computing power of the new Marelli 11MP ECU and the new, six-axis IMU for calculating the lean angles.
A passenger is no longer unwelcome on the new Aprilia Tuono V4 and can now enjoy a more spacious and comfortable, new upholstery and modified footrests.
The new Tuono V4 from Aprilia comes in the color variants Tarmac Gray …
… and Glacier White, …
… the factory only in black with red rims.
New Tuono models are available from March 2021.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 costs including VAT and ancillary costs from 17,490 euros, the Tuono V4 1100 Factory is in the price list from 20,990 euros.
Aprilia Tuono V4 (2021): With a new swing arm and more wings
Aprilia Tuono V4 (2021)
With a new swing arm and more wings
It is not just the small Euro 5 update with the Tuono V4. Aprilia does well in terms of chassis, aerodynamics and electronics. However, the engine remains unchanged in terms of displacement and remains equally powerful.
Aprilia has given the Tuono V4 a decent upgrade for 2021. Especially the new swing arm in MotoGP style should ensure a lot of joy on the road and in the eye of the beholder. Even the strong ones Aprilia RS 660 or Tuono 660 ajar front cladding with LED headlights and cornering lights should cause tongue snaps.
The engine remains brutal
The hammer V4 of the Tuono remains unchanged in terms of displacement and performance. So you can look forward to 1,077 cubic meters, 175 hp and 121 Nm. It is not yet known whether something has changed in the speed levels due to the Euro 5 update. This applies equally to the V4 and the V4 Factory. This is the difference to the likewise new Aprilia RSV4, which with 1,099 cubic has got a little more displacement with still 217 hp. A new exhaust system should get the well-known goose bumps sound despite the new volume limits.
New family design
New cladding with winglets, LED headlights and winglets as the new face of the family of the Tuonos and RS models from Aprilia.
In terms of optics, the front in particular has been completely redrawn. To RS 660, Tuono 660 and the RSV4 The Tuono V4 also gets the new family face with the new triple LED headlight unit with daytime running lights “Cornering light”-Function. Also new and improved is the comfort, which should be increased by the raised handlebars, the protective upper fairing and the slightly modified tank shape. This seems to differ from the Factory, which, according to Aprilia, should keep its status as a racing instrument in terms of comfort, which speaks for a flat handlebar and short disc at the Factory. Both have in common: improved aerodynamics are provided by the winglets integrated into the fairing, which are also used in a similar form on the RS 660 and RSV4. A passenger is no longer unwelcome on the new Aprilia Tuono V4 and can now enjoy a more spacious and comfortable, new upholstery and modified footrests, which again speaks for more comfortable ergonomics of the V4 compared to the Factory. Fun fact: Aprilia also offers tailor-made saddlebags as accessories for the V4.
New swing arm and chassis
New aluminum swing arm in the style of World SBK and Moto for less weight and more stability when accelerating.
The new swing arm with the distinctive support takes its geometry directly from the riders of the Superbike World Championship and MotoGP. The new component helps to reduce the mass and increase the stability of the rear when accelerating. With the V4, a conventional shock absorber is supported, with the Factory a semi-active Smart EC 2.0 system from Ohlins is used, which also controls the damping of the fork in the Factory. Other exclusive goodies such as lighter rims from the Factory have not yet been confirmed.
In addition to the cornering lights, the entire arsenal was turned on active driving safety systems the Tuono refreshed. The basis for this is the higher computing power of the new Marelli 11MP ECU and the new, six-axis IMU for calculating the inclines. Furthermore, the electronic management with ride-by-wire has been improved and the APRC operating logic has also been refined. Just as new as the adjustable engine brake are the now six riding modes. Three for the racetrack (two of which are customizable) and three for the road (one of which is customizable). As a rider, only the riding mode is selected and the stored settings with regard to traction control, wheelie control, engine brake, ABS and the other managed parameters such as the response of the throttle valve are automatically changed. All of this can be set and controlled via a new TFT screen. Pit limiter and cruise control, like a quickshifer with blipper, should still be on board with both variants. New control elements should also make the numerous setting options easier and more intuitive.
