Pictured: the future
In the future, our race suits will be capable of predicting crashes, inflating prior to impact in order to absorb forces exceeding even 23g without injury. In the future, those suits will sync to mobile devices more powerful than the computers used to put men on the moon. In the future, all those components will add only 450 grams of weight and require no additional space in the suit. In the futur...

How the Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC spins
Chris Harris has been spilling some beans on Ferrari’s treatment of the cars it supplies – or refuses – to journalists for reviews, and it makes my mild reservations about the Aprilia Tuono V4R we were given to ride around the Valencia MotoGP circuit look desperately over-sensitive. Test cars with blatantly tuned engines, different set-up cars supplied depending on the tests being done, Ferr...

102 high-res images of the Aprilia Tuono V4R
Compared to the old v-twin Tuono, this new Aprilia Tuono V4R makes 41bhp more and weighs 10kg less. It’s also fitted with Aprilia Performance Ride Control which incorporates traction control, wheelie control, launch control and quick shift.

Design Analysis: MV Agusta F3 and Aprilia Tuono V4R
EICMA in 2010 gave us a number of things to think about. Among the Chinese made, European-branded scooters and scantily-clad presentation girls, the Italian industry found some time between political scandals and a crashing economy to actually produce some new motorcycles. Over at MV Agusta v4.0, we got the very pretty and long awaited F3 middleweight, Ducati presented the Diavel power cruiser, Pi...

Try on a motorcycle before you buy it
Sort of the two wheeled equivalent of those paper dolls you...err, your sister, could mix and match outfits on, a new website offers a simple tool for calculating and comparing motorcycle fit. For example, the silhouette in this photo represents my 6’ 2” frame and 34” inseam on a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere. Looks like I should have no problem reaching the ground and my torso will be just forwa...

Details: Aprilia Tuono V4R
Out of all the bikes at the EICMA show — including the Diavel, F3 and Triumph Tiger 800 — it’s the Aprilia Tuono V4R that really needs a closer look. Not because it’s a complicated bike — a “naked” version of the RSV4 with a little less power and the addition of APRC — but because we think hiding behind those horrendously surprised headlights there’s actually a good looking motor...
