The alphabet soup that is the Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC ABS is about to get an update for the 2015 model year, as the Noale brand is set to debut the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 at next week’s EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

As the name implies, the new Tuono V4 1100 will get a displacement increase, to 1,110cc via a larger bore size (81mm, up from 78 mm). This puts peak power at 175hp (up from 170hp), with peak torque hitting 88.5 lbs•ft (up from 84.8 lbs•ft).

Other changes include the seat being lowered by half an inch (15mm), the handlebars being narrowed (better for lane-splitting), and the faux-windscreen is slightly higher. The updated Tuono also gets update bold new graphics to match its other changes.

The APRC electronics package remains the same, and for those of you missing the superfluously lettered naming convention from Aprilia, the above picture is of the RR Factory version, which comes with Öhlins suspension and other performance goodies.

With the previous Tuono V4 already our pick for best streetfighter on the market, we can’t wait for the full monty on the 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 and 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR Factory next week, when they officially debut at EICMA. Stay tuned.

    You also forgot to mention the much improved headlight design off the rsv4

    No more Pokemon face!

    the face looks odd

    Headlight’s Area still looks like an afterthought . . . BUUUUUT . . . it’s AN IMPROVEMENT from the ” Praying Mantis Face ” that was the last one.
    I need a side shot to complete my ” skinning her alive ” process.

    1100cc ? ! Are you defecating me ? I’m starting to feel guilty about my unending ” CC’s + Power + Torque Gluttony “.

    Half an inch lower seat. Seriously . . . OEM’s keep lowering seat heights and foot pegs stay the same height or higher.

    Who is the frigging Sadist behind this painful Scheme ? (O_o)’

    Who else liked the original first model year RSV4 Muffler ? it looked shorter and stubbier not organic like a tree branch or some elephant big intestine.

    All in all, KEEP IT UP APRILIA, GOOD WORK ! \(^_^)/

    Definitely a better face and treatment of the intakes, though still not a ‘sexy’ bike.

    Nothing a Paper Bag can’t fix. She’s always been a BUTTERFACE.

  • is this still called a naked superbike even though it has a .675 fairing? clips on’s are stored under tail section?

    Bought myself a Speed Triple when I turned 50, think this is for my 60th next May. Tom Petty said “you never slow down you never grow old”. Of course you could take that a couple of different ways…

    Aprilia put a single side swingarm on that thing and I I’ll have no choice but to buy it used in 5 years; come’ on.

  • Renn

    What to do when your bike has everything… give it more?

    Suzuki I hope you are paying attention!

    I must be in a minority but I liked the hawkish looks for the preceding bike. i don’t think this is any better or worse.

    I really want one but heck 175 horses and being naked means over 85mph is painful.

    I like the newer muffler. It’s shorter than the 2010 version. The old version looks too bulky to me; it screamed “replace me with an aftermarket slip on”. The newer version is much lighter too. To me it looks like it belongs , whereas the old one looked like after thought. The new one sounds much better too.

    I actually owned a 2013 tuono rsvr aprc. I got rid of it because to footpegs were too high for my long legs. A slip on was the first thing I changed . The akrapovic saved only 3 lbs and sounded the same . If I were to buy the new 2015 1100, at least I know the stock muffler can stay.

    Excellent work Aprilia. Too bad the bike sucks if you’re 50(i.e. less flexible) and 6’2″ . I do miss that motor! I’m tempted !
