Video: New Aprilia RSV4 Tuono spotted on track again

Aprilia’s new RSV4 Tuono naked bike has been spotted in almost finished trim at Mugello in Italy – four months before it will be seen at the Milan motorcycle show.

MCN showed spy shots of the RSV4 Tuono back in July 2009 but these latest shots captured by Italian bike magazine Motocisclismo show a more finished bike with a top fairing disguised by foam and tape. The new RSV4 Tuono replaces the ever-popular but soon out of production V-twin Tuono and is based on the V4 1000cc RSV4 superbike.  

The bike was spotted doing track testing at Mugello where it’s believed the test riders have been working on the final details of the front end handling.

MCN has got the full details of the new bike in next week’s paper out on June 30 with insiders revealing the power, price, specifications and when the bike will be going on sale.
