Triumph Speed Triple R takes on Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC and Ducati Streetfighter S

If you're into the wild side of motorcycling, super nakeds like the Triumph Speed Triple R, Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC and Ducati Streetfighter S are the perfect bikes for you. Though MCN's testers agreed the Aprilia was the best bike when a wide range of criteria were considered, the overall result wasn't as simple as that. We discovered that because of the...

Pure Brilliance

We have here 3 of the most desirable bikes on the planet . For me the Aprilia ticks the boxes . I've laid a deposit on one . It's the cheapest , and it's the best by a long shot . That V4 motor is the best 1000cc motor on the planet . And the frame , and units hanging off it are up there with the best . Combine that with a technological package that is the best here by far , the other two are looking a little out dated , especially the Triumph . Looks ? I like the looks . Whilst it doesn't make a statement , it is a clean modern look that oozes class. I like the fact that the small fairing and lights are not attached to the forks . Less to move . Comfort : there is a gel seat , a touring fairing (and a mode) , so Aprilia have also catered for the not so frisky .It can be ridden in comfort , but with the flick of the wrist it transforms into I dare say a speed triple and streetfighter beater. I'm having real trouble here to find a bike that does it better , and the price is ultra competitive . It is the best motor in the world fitted to one of the best frames in the world with one of the best tech advancements to be put on a bike . If comfort is a serious issue , get a beemer . Looks is in the eye of the beholder.The Aprilia Tuono IS the new bench mark that all other naked will be measured by . It is absolutly sublime to ride , I kid you not .
