Aprilia Updates 2019 RSV4 RR and Tuono V4 1100 Factory

  • Time for another update to the 2019 Aprilia V4 line-up.

  • The Tuono V4 1100 Factory will receive a new Öhlins electronic suspension.

  • The RSV4 RR receives cosmetic changes.

The manic Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 and hairy-chested RSV4 will receive a number of mid-life updates in 2019.

The pair of models form the backbone of Aprilia’s model line-up the Noale-based manufacturer needs to update them often to stave off assaults from other manufacturers.

The Tuono is already eight years old but is still a fierce streetfighter thanks to constant updates and Aprilia takes it up another notch for 2019.

  • The Tuono V4 1100 Factory version will receive the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension.
  • You may have heard of the suspension before, because it is the same system found on the Ducati Panigale V4S.
  • It works in conjunction with the IMU (Inertia Measurement Unit) and ECU to provide optimum suspension performance based on data regarding the brakes, lean angle, throttle position.
  • The data is used to constantly alter its damping to adjust to the rider’s riding style and road conditions.

  • Besides that, it also adjusts the steering damper and get this: The rider can set it through the switches on the handlebar and displayed on the TFT screen.
  • It can also be switched to manual mode allowing the rider to choose among Road, Sport, and Track modes.
  • The change of suspension will also provide extra travel to the forks, now up to 125mm from 117mm.

2019 will see only cosmetic changes to the line-up.

  • The addition of “Rivazza Grey” and “Arrabiata Black” paintworks for the RSV4 RR.
  • Both colour options will include red wheels.
  • The RSV4 RR will also receive magnesium engine covers, oil sump and cam covers but not including the Öhlins suspension.
