Feed your need for power, superior technology and riding satisfaction with the Aprilia Tuono 1000 R. The Tuono 1000 R is not ‘just another naked’ but a thoroughbred supersport with the fairing removed and higher handlebars fitted to achieve a unique blend of performance and rideability. The Tuono is a genuine street fighter that has been specially made to dominate road and track alike. Refined, aggressive, powerful, competition-beater thanks to the V60 Magnesium Evolution engine. Here is everything you could ask from a naked, with unique style on top. Developing 139 HP (102 kW) at the crank and amazing torque even at low revs thanks to larger diameter valves and exhaust collectors, the Aprilia Tuono 1000 R sets new standards for performance in the naked category. Yet the Tuono still promises Aprilia’s legendary reliability and total respect for the environment too. The double silencer exhaust system with three way catalytic converter and Lambda probe oxygen sensor keeps emissions well within the limits required by Euro 3 legislation.

The Tuono 1000 R stands out at first glance for its unmistakable style, and self-evident aerodynamics and ergonomics. The nose fairing has been developed in the wind tunnel and combines an enviably aggressive look with a superior level of protection. But that’s not all! The shape of the nose fairing helps improve stability at high speeds, working in conjunctionwith the spoilers on the sides of the frame. The rider’s seating position is decidedly race-oriented, and conceived to ensure absolute control over the front end without fatigue, assisting concentration and more effective handling. The sleek tail tapers upwards and incorporates fully integrated direction indicators, contributing to perfect aerodynamics and giving the bike a mean, aggressive look. The Tuono 1000 R is special from every point of view.



• The frame is a clever combination of aluminium-silicon castings and Peraluman 450 pressings, a solution that gives superior structural rigidity and a total weight of less than 10 Kg. The aluminium swingarm, with its double banana design to provide space for the new exhaust system, is extremely lightweight and robust. • The suspension creates the ideal balance between racetrack performance and road-going comfort, and is fully adjustable for a completely personal setup. The 43 mm upside down fork provides adjustments for spring load and hydraulic damping. The monoshock at the rear offers adjustments for extension damping and spring preload. • The Brembo Gold front brakes feature four-piston radial calipers with two pads per side for improved braking control with no extra effort at the lever. Both the front and rear brakes incorporate aeronautical metal braided hose for maximum precision. • Super-lightweight alloy wheels mean less gyroscopic effect, something you are sure to appreciate when total control means total domination of the field.

As agile as an idea, as powerful as an emotion, the Tuono 1000 R simply has no rivals when it comes to handling. And handling is the secret of its adrenaline pumping racetrack victories and its total rideability on the road. The Tuono’s agility is the result of perfect balance, perfect symbiosis between rider and bike, and a perfect mix of lightness and rigidity in the frame. Instant response and intuitive control is always yours, at all times and under all riding conditions.

• The double taper handlebars, aided by lightweight steering yokes designed for maximum agility, give you total control over your motorcycle. The multifunction instrument panel lets you monitor all necessary parameters, and the innovative headlight cluster provides perfect lighting and improved aerodynamics. The fully integrated electronic engine management system incorporates a sophisticated digital ignition system complete with immobiliser. In fact, everything about the Tuono 1000 R is special.

• The digital-analog instrumentation is an integral part of the Tuono’s auto-diagnostic system. The instruments are connected to the CAN engine management line and incorporate their own memory to form a genuine on-board computer. Thanks to a builtin 40 lap timer, the instruments are perfect for the racetrack as well as the road. User friendly and crystal clear to read, they also feature a more compact and lightweight design. The display’s LED backlighting can be adjusted to three levels of brightness.

On the Tuono 1000 R even the smallest details have been designed with rigour and finished to perfection as only Aprilia knows how. The reason behind so much care and attention is simple: the need to maximise performance, reduce overall weight and deliver unrivalled riding satisfaction.

• The tail light features an unmistakable design integrated into the lines of the tail and uses the latest LED technology. The headlight cluster too is derived from the RSV and incorporates four light units for perfect visibility even under the darkest riding conditions.

Improved racing graphics, giving you the immediate sensations of the racetrack, the refined style which is second to none, the undeniable Aprilia passion. The ultimate in technology and prestige in a production naked. This is Tuono 1000 R Factory: the culmination of Aprilia’s experience on racetracks around the world, ready to thrill even the most expert and demanding riders with its blistering performance and superb equipment. Carbon fibre, aluminium and magnesium for an even lighter, more powerful and effective Tuono 1000 R Factory: exclusively the best.


• The frame is a mix of aluminium-silicon castings and Peraluman 450 pressings, and gives amazing torsional rigidity despite the fact that is actually the lightest frame on any bike of this type, weighing in at only 9,650 grams. • Ultra-lightweight forged aluminium rims, specially manufactured to Aprilia specifications, minimise inertia for even better acceleration and braking and for even more precise control through the bends. • The Tuono 1000 R Factory is equipped as standard with a 190/55 rear tyre for maximum agility and grip on the racetrack. The bike is also fully homologated for 190/50 (standard) tyres. • The 43 mm Öhlins upside down fork is the top of the range in terms of technology and allows you to find exactly the right setting for your own riding style. • At the rear, a fully adjustable Öhlins monoshock with piggy back cylinder guarantees superb suspension action and precision control. • Carbon fibre parts, including belly pan, side panels, mudguards and spoilers, have not only added to the prestige of the Tuono 1000 R Factory but have also reduced mass to a record 181 Kg dry weight.

A. APRILIA STREET LEGAL SLIP-ON SILENCERS BY AKRAPOVIC Slip-on silencers developed in conjunction with Akrapovic especially for the Tuono. Homologated for road use and conformity to strict E3 noise and emission standards. The titanium hexagonal bodies terminate in a carbon fibre tail to give your Tuono an even more aggressive look. These Akrapovic slipons reduce your bike’s overall weight by 3.9 kg and improve performance at medium-low engine speeds around 5400 rpm, with a further improvement in power output over 9000 rpm. Come complete with a certificate of conformity, allowing you to circulate freely on public roads. Maximum performance can be achieved quickly and easily by removing the DB killer. B. FULLY ADJUSTABLE ÖHLINS STAINLESS STEEL AND ÖHLINS ALUMINIUM REAR SHOCK ABSORBER KITS Specially designed for racing use. These fully adjustable race tech shock absorbers allow you to find exactly the right setup for any riding conditions. The hydraulic damping system offers a wide range of adjustments for both compression and rebound. Spring preload and unit length are fully adjustable too. Wheel travel is 133 mm. Every component in the lamellar damping pack and external adjustment systems has been developed, tested and calibrated on road and track to achieve perfect control over the hydraulics. The aluminium version reduces your bike’s overall weight by a further 450 grams. C. CARBON FIBRE PARTS Race ready lightness and prestige even on the road. These body parts are manufactured in clear varnished carbon fibre and give an average reduction in weight of 45% compared to the standard parts they replace. All parts have been safety tested and homologated by TÜV and can therefore be used on the road as well as on the racetrack. D. ÖHLINS ADJUSTABLE STEERING DAMPER KIT Unbeatable adjustment and shimmy control. Fits across the top yoke on a single-piece bracket.
