For 2017, the Tuono V4 1100 RR and Tuono V4 1100 Factory have a lot of electronic updates.

They include traction control and wheelie control now allowing adjustments without having to close the throttle, the quick shifter now allows downshifts, a pit lane speed limiter and cruise control.

They also now come with Bosch cornering ABS measuring lateral acceleration, brake pressure, lean, pitch and yaw angles and works with Aprilia’s system for preventing rear wheel lift under hard braking.

They feature a new colour TFT instrument display panel, and optional Apriia V4-MP smartphone datalogging system to allow riders to make voice commands and receive/make calls.

The Euro 4 engine has lighter pistons and honed conrod heads, a new exhaust system and new ECU to manage the 500rpm increase in revs.

Aprilia says the gearbox has a new linear sensor to make it more precise and the brakes now have Brembo M50 calipers, larger 330mm discs and a radial master cylinder.

The Tuono V4 1100 Factory gets a lighter Ohlins NIX rear shock.

RSV4 updates

The ALC (Aprilia Launch Control) has also been refined and both the RR and RF come with cornering ABS as standard and a colour TFT instrument display and the new datalogging system with corner-by-corner calibration.
