Scooters that brandish the Aprilia badge are all about flair and performance, and that’s what makes them so unique and sets them apart from the other similar displacement scooters in the market.

After a day on track at Misano MotoGP race track, in perfect conditions in Italy, on sticky Pirelli slicks, I’m blown away. Aprilia have managed to improve an already excellent bike.

Aprilia Tuono V4 1100RR

It is easy to run out of superlatives very quickly when writing or talking about the genus motorcycle in all its modern forms. We have reached such an unprecedented pinnacle in design, technology, performance, dynamics, reliability, variety, and any other measurable parameter, both physical and aesthetic, that the only criticism one can make is often purely subjective.
