The legendary Aprilia Tunono V4 is back for another year in 2023 and remains a hot contender on the naked bike market. The Italian-designed Tuono shares many of the performance-oriented features and engineering that make the RSV4 a success but sets it up to be slightly more appropriate for everyday use.
Don’t get us wrong – when we say appropriate for everyday use, we don’t mean it has any less of the absolutely ballistic performance found in its fully-faired brother. A 1,077cc V4 sits at the heart of this machine, producing a claimed 175hp and 89.24 lb-ft of torque.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t exactly the same beast found in the RSV model, which is actually 1,099cc, and produces a bit more power, although both V4 engines appear to share many of the characteristics that are commonplace within the 2023 Aprilia lineup.
The Tuono V4 features a fully adjustable Sachs front fork setup, with a Sachs monoshock in the back, also fully adjustable. Brembo brakes are standard on the front and rear, which help to keep all those ponies in check.
Although this bike is more street-oriented, Aprilia has treated it to its full APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) system to help riders make the most of all those ponies. The APRC includes a half dozen riding modes, various engine maps, and a handful of riding controls, including wheelie control and traction control.
As is the trend with Aprilia, The Tuono V4 has an optional ‘Factory’ upgrade pack, which features some premium goodies like Ohlins semi-active suspension, and some slightly more aggressive styling.
Colours for the 2023 Tuono V4 include Torque Red & Tarmac Grey on the standard bike, as well as “Time Attack”, “Speed White”, and “Ultra Dark” liveries on the Factory model.
The 2023 Aprilia Tuono V4 starts at $16,199 USD/ $19,195 CAD

The Aprilia Tuono V4 continues to raise the bar in the Hypernaked category with never-before-seen levels of performance and sophistication, the result of Aprilia know-how and the unrivalled experience of the inventors of this class of bike. They took a superbike and created a vehicle that delivers sheer joy on the road and track alike. It’s little wonder it has been described as “the most extraordinary sports bike you can buy, with performance and finishes second to none”.
Absolute power, total control
The Tuono V4 remains the only naked powered by the unique four-cylinder narrow 65° V engine. It may be Euro-5 compliant, but that hasn’t come at the cost of the inimitable sound and famed outstanding performance. With its 175 horsepower and 121 Nm, together with the dazzlingly balanced chassis and advanced electronics package, this extraordinary 1077-cc V4 is set to continue to dominate the entire Hypernaked category.
A new style
The new style of the Tuono V4 is inspired by the RS 660, with its innovative double fairing with aerodynamic appendix function, characterised by reduced surfaces and the new triple LED light configuration with DRLs that include “bending lights”. The new design puts the focus on ergonomics with a revamped fuel tank shape and tail faring creating more space and a better fit for the rider.
The Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory and Tuono V4
The Factory title is bestowed upon those Aprilia bikes that have proved their mettle on the track and comparative tests around the world. The Tuono V4 Factory continues to push the boundaries and forge ahead of rivals, new and old, that every year try to knock it off the top podium in the class invented by Aprilia.
The Tuono V4 is no slouch either in the speed department, but with new ergonomics and specially-designed accessories, it is the perfect companion for touring and adventures near and far.
Tuono V4 Factory
Dominated by a white that enhances the aerodynamic lines and its design with built-in winglets, the Speed White livery is combined with red wheel rims and adorned with the Aprilia inscription on the side and sport graphics inspired by the Aprilia RS-GP prototype playing a leading role in the 2023 MotoGP World Championship.
