MotoRevue has sent their man Jérôme Vannesson into the bat cave to whip up another photoshop of what they expect a motorcycle to look like, and this time getting the treatment is the 2011 Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory, in all its re-imagined glory.
We showed you pictures of the Tuono V4 base model lapping around Misano earlier this year, but word on the likely factory edition has been sparse (likely due to its expected release after the base model’s at November’s EICMA). However, we do know from past example that the Factory edition of the will get forged wheels, Öhlins suspension, and a fair dose of carbon fiber.
MotoRevue seems to think that the Tuono V4 Factory will get a modest power-boost too, taking the naked-RSV4 up to 160hp to compete more closely with the Ducati Streetfighter. That move would certainly make sense as Aprilia will want their long-awaited revision of the Tuono to out-spec its cousin to the South.
