Guido, this is
an Aprilia fan. And it made him sick to see the Streetfighter V4
supplant the 1100 Tuono V4 in the excessiveness of the category of
hyper-roadsters. But with this extreme Tuono, baptized X, his heart comes
to spend happily in over-revving.
de Noale went further than anyone in the advent of the roadster.
V4 X is a pure product for the track, as exclusive as it is insane. You
thought that Ducati or MV-Agusta fire pumps are already out of the ordinary?!?
Aprilia gives them two floats before the fight even begins: 221
horses for 166 kilos. Even hypersports remain silent.

Aprilia takes it further with this naked version of the RSV4 X. That’s the department
Factory Works which took care of this gestation. So you can smell the smell

engine itself is a competitive injection bomb. Taken from the
RSV4 1100 Factory, it still wins horses in the Tuono V4 X by going from
217 to 221 units. Above all, he breathes much better. The air filter is a
much more breathable Sprint element, which Aprilia uses in MotoGP. The

its prerogatives. Engine brake, traction control and anti-wheeling adjustments

integrated. The shifter Up&Down is a standard model.
for a while, the influence of aerodynamics caused ailerons to grow on
high-caliber sportswomen. This Tuono comes in turn, with winglets
large, forming an integral part of the fork crown. The
Mimicry with the Grand Prix RS-GP is striking. Not very graceful but there you go
enough to increase stability at high speed and during braking phases.
V4 X is dressed in the now classic and Homeric Loris Reggiani replica colorway,
which Aprilia puts on the uniquely identifiable models. A dress that we
found on the RSV-R 1000 R Bol d´or replica or on the imminent RS 660. Under
the paint, all the trim is carbon.
The lightweight exhaust and semi-fairing are a big part of the cure
weight loss. To get its featherweight, only 9 kg heavier
than a MotoGP, the racing department has revised the tank, simplified the equipment
electric, installed beautiful machined aluminum parts (adjustable rear controls,
brake and clutch levers, fuel tank cap, sump guards)
and changed the pair of shoes. Check the wheels: beautiful rims
