MCN's senior road tester Michael Neeves is about to ride Aprilia's new V4 Tuono at the official launch in Valencia. Find an Aprilia for sale

Great things are expected of the 167bhp (claimed) machine, which is essentially an RSV4 without the fairing. We're assuming it'll handle beautifully and have the accelerative subtlety of a Tomahawk missile, but can normal size people fit on it?

The RSV4 is brilliant but tiny. If the Tuono makes the RSV4 engine accessible to big blokes, Aprilia could be onto a winner... Read Neevesey's quick post-ride report here later today.

In the meantime here's Aprilia's latest promo video. It's a bit tossy to start with but you see the bike eventually.
