The 1000cc V4 engine has been bored out to 1100cc with power up 7kW to 130kW and torque up to 8.5Nm to 120Nm.

Meanwhile, the Tuono’s seat height has been lowered 15mm to 820mm and the handlebars have been narrowed for a more rider-focused and aggressive attitude to match the power boost.

Aprilia has also revamped the chassis and further developed their APRC electronic systems package.

They also revealed an RR and higher-spec Factory version at the EICMA show in Milan.

Just days after winning both the World Superbike rider and manufacturer titles, Aprilia released its new RSV4 in RR and RF variants.

The biggest update is the engine which now breaches 200hp. The 65-degree V-4 generates 150kW at 13,000rpm up from 132kW at 12,500rpm and 115Nm of torque at 10,500 rpm which is the same as the previous model.

Aprilia lifted the compression ratio from 13:1 to 13.6:1 and updated the cam timing and profile, ports shape, dynamic air intakes, and airbox.

The RR and RF come with all Aprilia’s electronic hi-tech gizmos and are shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa radials in 120/70-17 and 200/55-17 sizes.
