Anyone try the Aprilia Tuono APRC

Kinda like it and wondering if anyone here tested one out...



MCN says
Apriliaís new Tuono V4 R APRC has genuine superbike performance, advanced electronic rider aids, a MotoGP soundtrack and a real-world, roomy riding position. Could this be the ultimate real-world superbike?
Producing a claimed 167bhp, itís more powerful than its closest super naked rivals, like the Ducati Streetfighter, KTM 990 Super Duke and Triumph Speed Triple. Itís a serious weapon on the track thanks to its balanced chassis, strong brakes, powerful engine, quickshifter, traction control and anti-wheelie. On the road itís loads of fun when you turn the anti-wheelie off and setting the traction control high to deal with the unexpected, is a useful safety feature. You can be the first away from the traffic light GP too, if you use the electronic launch control. With a wide spread of smooth power and an impeccable throttle response itís far less brutal then the V-twin Tuono of old. Itís also available without the APRC package for a grand less.

We don't have them in the states yet. I'm sure it's a great bike since it shares so much with the RSV4.

I always wanted one of the old ones as a huge fan of naked sportbikes with the ergos of a standard. 160hp, traction control, wheelie control, launch control, sounds like the recipe for the perfect streetbike.

Did not put much miles on it yet but for now I am extremely impressed!!! The bike is light at 183kg which to me makes power to weight ratio is ridicules (0.914hp/Kg). The different maps (Street/Race/Track) are great to have and characteristics are very noticeable between them. After installing the new pipes and CPU upgrade all three settings are slightly modified with about 7-10 hps extra to play with…

Seating is great but I think I will raise the handlebar a little… I am over 180cm and feel for a naked my riding position is a little on the aggressive side
