A dealer in Nottingham, UK has received its shipment of 2014 Aprilia Tuono V4Rs, reporting that the model receives ABS, a larger fuel tank and several other updates. The most sophisticated naked bike ever made already comes with traction control, wheelie control and launch control, all working hard to keep its 168bhp tamed.
"New Contents Tuono V4 APRc ABS
Bigger Fuel Tank (18.5 lt vs 17)
Redesigned exhaust muffler (+2HP)
Single adjustment per fork leg (Comp & Re-bound)
Adjustable multi-map ABS
New Brembo M432 monoblock radial front calipers
Improved Comfort: Softer rider seat and new fork and shock absorber settings
New colours (matt black and matt white)
New front mudguard finishing
New Aprilia Multimedia Platform available as an accessory"
In addition to pinching the RSV4's ABS, the Tuono will most benefit from that larger fuel capacity. By growing from 4.5 to 4.9 gallons, at an observed 28mpg average fuel economy, that increases the bike's range from 126 to 137 miles and should keep the low fuel light from coming on before 100 miles.
No word on the new model's availability or price in the US, but we'll update you when there is.
