Post Sale Update: This Tuono Racing sold for $7,799 after 20 bids on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
The modern Aprilia Tuono is a perennial shootout winner, but one of my favorites of the model goes back to the beginning – the limited production Tuono Racing.
The stock Tuono was impressive in its own way, but the Tuono Racing took it to the next level with high-end components including carbon fiber bodywork, OZ wheels, Brembo radial calipers, and Ohlins suspension (forks, steering damper, and shocks). There was also a full factory kit which included a carbon fiber front fairing with number plate/headlight delete, longer carbon fiber belly pan with built-in oil catch tank, mesh taillight cover, reverse-pattern shifter, race chip, and titanium exhaust can, but I’ve found over the years that most bikes no longer come with those pieces.
This example (VIN: ZD4RPC0504S000482) does not come with the race kit, but it is offered by friend-of-Bike-urious Simon Graham, who I have previously featured as his MV Agusta 750S previously won Best Of Show at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering.
This Tuono features adjustable footpegs, a Power Commander, Arrow exhaust, and a few other small goodies. Find this Tuono for sale in Ramona, California with bidding up to $5,101 and the reserve not yet met here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
