2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR First Ride Review

For the first time, Aprilia is offering a Factory version of the V-4 Tuono, seen here in its Superpole graphic. Retailing for a $1,700 premium over the $14,599 RR, it includes Ohlins suspension and steering damper, aluminum (rather than the RR’s steel) front brake rotor flanges, a wider 200/55-17 rear tire and red wheels – wheels are not the lighter, forged-aluminum hoops sometimes fitted to Aprilia’s Factory models. The $16,299 Factory is scheduled to arrive in American dealers this month, a couple of months ahead of the RR.
