Scantily Clad – 2007 Aprilia Tuono 1000R

In the super-naked segment since 2002, Aprilia found it a good place to show off their chassis engineering and 998 cc V-twin.  Today’s Tuono looks great with its transformer bodywork in a monochrome checkerboard, and a few pairs of seemingly unused bobbins.

The Tuono had plenty of thunder between the alloy frame spares, and cooked up 139 hp with the dry sump, four-cam twin.  Tank and seat console are shared with the superbike, but the tapered bars are more conventional, giving a comfortable upright riding position.  Showa USD forks and Sachs monoshock are multi-adjustable and rely on the 320mm Brembo brakes to keep things in perspective.  The bikini fairing makes a helmet-sized hole in the wind, and the radiator shrouds send the rest around the rider.

The 26,647 miles have been kind to this Tuono, with just an isolated smudge and just a few minor farkles.  The newish eBay dealer doesn’t offer any history, but says that a rear stand accompanies the bike.  Notes from the eBay auction –

GOOD CONDITION WITH 26,647 MILES. VEHICLE HAS FRONT AXLE SLIDERS, REAR PADDOCK STAND, ADJUSTABLE LEVERS, CRG BAR END MIRRORS, NEW GRIPS, AND A SMOKED WINDSCREEN. 

While not the fire-breathing WSBK example, the Tuono has a lot on the ball and won’t require a trip to the chiropractor when it’s over.  It might make it out of the garage more often than the RSV, and on the road the speed difference on the road wouldn’t amount to much.  As good as this Tuono looks, it can’t be described as new, but packs a nice punch for the ask.

  • An excellent value, this bike. Tons of fun for the asking price. The shock is an Ohlins, not Sachs.

  • Yes, total hooligan unit. A friend sold his because it was too much fun.
