Powerful, compelling and dynamic. For 2017, the Aprilia Tuono 125 returns, characterised by undeniable style taken from the Tuono V4 1100 and the RSV4. Drawing in younger riders and small engine enthusiasts, the Aprilia Tuono hosts the best features desired for a bike of its range, packing a bundle of pure excitement with its assertive sports bike persona.
Emulating the attributes of true, naked sports bike, it embodies an agile yet tenacious personality, flaunting an aggressive spirit that deals a swift yet graceful ride due to the riding set up and the position of the high handle bars. Equipped with a 14-litre tank, perfect for long range adventures, the Tuono 125 houses a completely redesigned chassis and updated headlights.
Taking distinguished details from its big sibling, the Tuono V4, the Aprilia Tuono 125 has been created to offer a dexterous and enduring ride along with maximum control, without compromising on comfort.
Aggressive, sporty, capable of expressing dynamic character and light weight in a unique and unmistakable style, a true big Aprilia in 125 cc of pure fun.
Designed, developed and built in Italy, Aprilia Tuono 125 offers the younger rider, but also enthusiasts of smaller engine capacities, the best they can find in terms of design, construction, components and technical features.
An exaggerated line
The line is unequivocally inspired by that of the Tuono V4 1100, the record-setting Street Fighter, the crowned jewel of Noale production along with the highly decorated RSV4 from which it was derived.
A top fairing with a sporty look, a cutting-edge frame, a top performance engine: the new Aprilia Tuono 125 is the embodiment of a super sport bike stripped of its fairings. It is a bike with an extremely strong personality, a true naked but with an aggressive spirit, capable of providing top performance on flowing rides and unattainable handling thanks to the riding set up, also effected by the wide and high handlebar.
The line of the new Tuono 125 is strongly characterised by the headlight which, as is the case for its big sister, the Tuono V4, gives the bike a decidedly original and attractive look, improves active safety for night riding and guarantees immediate visibility of the bike during the day.
Aprilia Tuono 125 is also special in the details: the fuel tank, with an astonishing capacity of 14 litres, provides exceptional range and, thanks to its design, allows for a perfect rider/bike fit.
A benchmark chassis
The Tuono 125's chassis is a work of art inspired by speed and total control of performance. Made entirely in aluminium, it is an exclusive in the 125 segment of the “little devil” made in Noale. Designed on the basis of Aprilia's experience on the track, the spectacular perimeter frame consists of die cast aluminium spars with crossed reinforcement ribs. The result is a lightweight structure, capable of providing high torsional rigidity in order to guarantee top performance.
The solid upside-down fork, completely redesigned, and the rear suspension with monoshock secured to the asymmetrical swingarm, ensure top level performance, safety and comfort. The design of the 6 split spoke wheels emphasizes the gritty character of the Tuono 125, a configuration that also ensure superior features in terms of light weight and speed going into corners.
