The new exhaust system has the best silencer, which uses the double oxygen sensor and has a built in valve. The ECU of an engine is entirely new and it uses the superior calculating capacity able to manage the rise in max rev i.e. 500 rpm higher.

In order to ensure max reliability, min friction and the piston pins have DLC surface treatment, whereas the connecting rod heads boast the surface honing treatment. The combustion chamber is no longer obtained through the fusion process, but with the use of a numerically controlled mechanical process. The gearbox is using the linear sensor, which guarantees an impeccable gearshift operation.

The new 9.1 MP system is fully contained weight and dimensions for optimizing braking and the intervention of ABS in corners. Due to the specific algorithm used in the new Tuono V4 1100 RR my2017 Aprilia Sports Bike, which constantly monitors the various parameters such as pitch, yaw angle, a pressure applied to the front brake lever for maintaining the ratio between the deceleration and stability.

The all-new ABS system works with the Aprilia Rear Lift Mitigation (RLM) system, which limits the lift for the rear wheel during abrupt braking. The Cornering ABS is tuned according to the standards of Aprilia’s specific indications and is adjustable in 3 levels of sensibility plus it can be switched off.
