Aprilia's Tuono Fighter hit the streets for the first time at Intermot 2002. The new Tuono is the logical development of the 2002 RSV Mille R Tuono, a prestige bike made in limited series of only 200 - which sold out in a few days. The enthusiastic press and furore surrounding the Tuono "R" gave just a taste of this new production Tuono Fighter. The aggressive look of the R version is still there, as are the same excellent dynamics and guaranteed riding sensation, but the price tag is well within reach. The Tuono is not just another naked. It is much, much more. Its powerful V twin engine delivers an astounding 126 horsepower and is closely related to the racing power unit on the RSV Mille, Europe's best selling sports twin. That is why we call the Tuono a naked hyper. The Tuono Fighter delivers performance that our competitors simply cannot approach, performance that is made 100% usable by a professional chassis and aerodynamic windshield.
