Most notable among the upgrades is the fact that there is a larger engine. Via the 3mm overbore, it has been set to 1077 cc making it one of the biggest engines in its category. The torque is not up to 89.2 lb-ft at 9000rpm with a rating at the crankshaft. In addition, the horsepower has been raised to 175 ponies. One of the most outstanding features of the new model is the bump in midrange power at 8000 rpm.

When twisting the throttle on tight roads, you can easily notice that the bike responds with a greater urgency compared to the previous versions. In fact, it feels like the machine is more eager to float on its front. The fact that it is fitted with smaller sized crankshafts and crankpins means that it is more effective when it comes to negotiating the turns, especially at a high speed. With the reduced weight of some of these components, you will require less energy to keep the bike in its position as you ride on. You will definitely like it because of the less parasitic drags thanks to enhanced ventilation.

There is a tail section that has been derived from the popular RSV4.

You will also like the new seat padding that is made from foam materials which cushion against hardening from crystallization. Most notably, the seat feels much comfier than the ones found on the previous model. The handle bars have been used to marginally alter the ergonomics and so, they are narrower. They also seem to be slightly lower. However, this is only a marginal change because when you ride the bike, you will hardly feel the difference, especially when at a high speed. The powertrains as well as the newfound burliness complete the set of amazing features.

One of the most outstanding features of the 2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory is that they have always been easy and fun when being bent into corners. Whether you are at a slow speed or fast, the sharper steering geometry always provides the additional advantage. And with the new model, things just got better. What’s more, tests have indicated that it has become even easier to bend, especially in sharp corners. And with quicker warm up times, you can expect it to be even more effective. It picks up the speed much faster and is also quick to come to a halt when the brakes are applied.

However, this great functionality does not come without controls. Although the 2016 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory would have been a feral animal, it has been tamed by the third generation electronic rider aids. This has been made possible by the inclusion of a more powerful ECU. A new model replaces the ride mode choice which loses some power clipping. Because of this, there are relatively less aggressive responses to good effects. The track and spot maps have all been integrated into this to ensure ease of use. It is also easy to notice that each ride mode has been fitted with its own engine as well as brake management parameters. They work along with the slipper clutch.
