Aprilia has launched the track-attack version of the Tuono V4, dubbed as the Tuono V4 X. The Tuono V4 X is not just a race livery iteration of the standard motorcycle but the Italian brand has tuned its engine to develop a lot more power than the standard while weighing less than before. The Aprilia Tuono V4 X will also be sold in a limited-production series and the brand will be making only 10 examples of the motorcycle positioning the track-spec motorcycle in the Super-Exclusive Hypernaked category.
In terms of styling, the Aprilia Tuono V4 X comes with Bol d’Or graphics on the carbon fibre bodywork that draw inspiration from the 2006 Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory race bike. The hyper naked track-spec motorcycle retains its overall silhouette but features a lightened fuel tank, billet aluminium clutch and brake levers, billet aluminium engine crankcase covers, rear set adjustable footrests and fuel filler cap. The motorcycle also features lightweight Marchesini forged magnesium rims shod in track-spec slick rubber.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 X is powered by an RSV4 1100 Factory derived, 1077cc Aprilia longitudinal 65-degree V-4-cylinder, 4-stroke motor with liquid-cooling system and double overhead camshafts (DOHC) that develops 221 Bhp of power, 4 Bhp more than the 217 Bhp standard unit, and features unrestricted mapping along with full Akrapovič titanium exhaust with a carbon fibre exhaust pipe. In its standard form, the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 generates 175 Bhp of power and 121 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed gearbox and three riding modes -Sport, Race and Track.
The Aprilia Tuono X is also hyperlight and tips the scales at 166 kg (Dry). Comparing to the standard model which weighs in at 184.6 kg (Dry). The Tuono V4 X also gets an aerodynamic package to improve its straight-line speed as well as cornering dynamics and downforce and features aero winglets inspired from the Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP race bike. The hyper naked track motorcycle also gets upgraded mechanical parts such as Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension and Brembo braking system with GP4-MS high-performance callipers.
