Aprilia Tuono V4 X Production Expanded, But You Still Can’t Get One

The Aprilia Tuono V4 X is a limited edition, track only, version of the Noale’s hyper-naked bike…and of course it comes with MotoGP-inspired wings. It makes 218hp at the crank, weighs 366 lbs bone dry, costs €34,900, and only 10 bikes were going to be made.

Now, Aprilia tells us that production for the Aprilia Tuono V4 X is going to increase three-fold. That means 30 bikes will be produced, which would seem like good news if you were not one of the lucky 10 who first got a chance to own this unique motorcycle.

We still have some bad news, however. All 20 of those additional units are already spoken for.

This means that in all likelihood the photo gallery below is the closest you will get to the Aprilia Tuono V4 X, as only 7 bikes will come to North American (5 coming to the USA, and 2 coming to Canada).

Built by Aprilia Racing, the Tuono V4 X is similar to the RSV4 X that we saw last year, which isn’t by accident.

Both bikes are designed to showcase the prowess of Noale’s racing department, and what can be achieved when you don’t have to worry about homologation requirements.

This has has led to the Tuono V4 X dropping 40 lbs compared to its on-road counterpart, and in order to do that, Aprilia has employed no shortage of carbon fiber (including its biplane winglets).

Other tasty bits include Brembo GP4-MS calipers,Brembo T-Drive discs, a 19x16mm Brembo master cylinder, forged magnesium Marchesini wheels, Öhlins semi-active electronic suspension, and an up/down quickshifter. The electronics have also been updated.

You will either love or hate the “Bol d’Or” paint job that comes on the Tuono V4 X, but I think we can all find common ground in the fact that this bike looks like a fun way to spend a track day.
