Pricing announced for 2021 Aprilia Tuono V4 and V4 Factory
Aprilia have confirmed the pricing for their 2021 Tuono V4 super naked range, with bikes set to arrive in UK dealers before the end of April.
Featuring styling updates, chassis tweaks and a more comfortable and protected riding position, the top-spec Factory model will now set you back £18,100 - with the lesser equiped base model V4 arriving at £15,500.

The bikes' new looks bring it in line with the Tuono 660 we saw unveiled earlier this year and includes a revised half fairing and bigger screen. Aprilia say this, coupled with a more comfortable riding position thanks to the revised tank and tail unit design will make it better for long-distance journeys.
Aerodynamic wings – a now established feature in the super naked segment – are built into the plastics, which also house the headlight unit with DRL and 'bending lights' features. The swingarm is now a lighter aluminium unit with a lower reinforcement brace as seen on the Italian firm’s MotoGP machines.
A new, larger TFT display and more intuitive controls will allow you to navigate the smorgasbord of electronics settings including a choice of six riding modes – three for the track and three for the road - controled by a six-axis IMU and Marelli ECU. Two of the track modes and one of the road options are customisable, allowing the rider to choose their own levels of ABS, traction control, wheelie control and engine braking should they wish.
The Tuono’s howling V4 engine remains unchanged but is now Euro5 compliant. That means you still get 173bhp and 89lbft of torque from the 1077cc V4 unit. As with previous versions, the Tuono V4 is available in two levels of trim, standard and a Factory version with Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension.
The standard model will be available in grey or white, while the Factory version is only available in the black and red option shown above. There will be a range of accessories including dedicated asymmetrical panniers.
