Hogs in the ‘hood: Aprila Tuono

Aprila Tuono brings the thunder...

Aprila Tuono brings the thunder...

Another gorgeous Italian bike spotted in Williamsburg.  This Aprila Tuono 1000 (Tuono is Thunder in Italian) is a rare find in these parts, but leave it to the ‘burg to attract those with the finger on the pulse…From 2002 to 2011, like most manufacturers, Italy’s Aprila jumped into the Naked Bike market, in their typical over the top, over-designed style.  Don’t get me wrong, I know this bike is a beast, in the best possible way.  Based on the Aprila RSV Mille and RSV1000 superbike, this thing can move!

Making a bike in the streetfighter or naked style, became mainstream, but with a lineage as powerful as their race bikes, this fighter can really go a few rounds…
