Aprilia Tuono 150 Highlights
12 February 2018: The Aprilia Tuono 150 is a premium 150cc commuter motorcycle that shares the majority of its components with its sibling, the Aprilia RS 150. At the heart, it is powered by the same liquid-cooled, fuel injected 4-stroke 150cc engine as on the RS 150 that is capable of churning out a max power of 18hp at 10,000rpm and a peak torque of 14Nm at 7,500rpm. The bike gets a suspension assembly of a 40mm USD front fork and mono-shock absorbers at the rear. It runs on 17-inch wheels with a braking set up of 300mm disc with radial 4 piston caliper at the front and 218mm single caliper disc at the rear. The bike comes equipped with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and a quick shifter will be offered as an accessory. The wheels are wrapped by 100/80 and 130/70 tubeless tyres at the front and at the rear ends respectively – similar to the RS 150. However, on the design front, it is a naked commuter sporting different design cues than the RS 150 like the windscreen is a lot shorter than RS 150, seating is more of a raised single-seat configuration rather than a spilt-seat setup and the fuel tank is compact too. The expected price for the Tuono 150 is Rs 1,30,000 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
