Aprilia has updated the official Indian website and added new Aprilia superbikes to the website. The brand has added, the 2021 Aprilia RSV4, RSV4 Factory, Tuono V4 and Tuono V4 Factory to the website. This leads us to believe that the brand is planning to launch the superbikes soon in the Indian market.
Aprilia RSV4 & Tuono V4
The 2021 Aprilia RSV4 and the Tuono V4 features the brand latest design language. This new design made its debut on the Aprilia RS 660 and Tuono 660. The brand’s cross max scooter line-up, the SXR 160 and SXR 125 which were recently launched in India also features the global design language.
The new design features sleek LED headlamps in Aprilia’s hallmark triple setup and sharp front fairing. The brand has also extensively worked in the aerodynamics department to improve the efficiency of air flowing over the motorcycle. Thus the new bodywork comes with aero winglets integrated into the fairing.
The motorcycle also features updates in the ergonomics departments and Aprilia boasts that the new RSV4 and Tuono V4 offer a Natural and Relaxed position. While off-course the Tuono V4 is much more relaxed compared to the RSV4 but both motorcycles look similar in design. The Tuono V4 comes with a half fairing a taller touring style windscreen, straight handlebars instead of clip-on bars on the RSV4.
