2015 RSV4

Aprilia generated big news at EICMA. First, the Tuono V4 1000 evolves into the Tuono V4 1100 to increase “drivability” and quality of throttle response, making the engine more flexible and pleasant in everyday use on the road.

The extra cubes come from enlarging cylinder bore from the original 78mm to 81. In this number, there is an extra meaning: This is the maximum bore allowed for four-cylinder 1000cc MotoGP engines, and next year Aprilia will be racing in that series with a bike powered by a dedicated version of the 65-degree V-4 sporting an 81mm bore to take full advantage of the rules.

A byproduct of the R&D work that the Romano Albesiano-led technical team has been doing to develop the MotoGP engine, the updated V-4 makes a claimed 175 peak horsepower and 88.5 pound-feet of torque, numbers that should result in the strongest naked bike in production.  (READ THE REST HERE)
