Aprilia Tuono 1000 R review
The Aprilia Tuono 1000 R is the bike that all other nakeds have to be. It is a machine for the demanding motorcyclist, the rider who seeks maximum performance from a naked, on the road and on the track. Ever since it first appeared on the motorcycling scene, the Tuono has embodied Aprilias genius and amazing technical know-how, accumulated through victory after victory in motorcycle racing. The Tuono has come to mean flair and technology more than any other road-going motorcycle. Not just another naked, the Tuono is a 1000 cc superbike. The Tuono is a street fighter with racing in the blood.
The new Aprilia 1000 R moto is refined, powerful. It holds all the records for this class of motorcycle, and is the unquestioned leader on the twin cylinder scene.
With performance beyond the reach of the competition, the Tuono 1000 R is the best naked money can buy, with all the performance of a racing superbike to thrill even the most sophisticated racetrack riders. The 139HP engine not only gives you more power to play with, but makes the bike more usable on the road too. Just like the RSV from which it derives, the Tuono 1000 R embodies the concept of total ridability that has always characterised Aprilias performance motorcycles.
