Aprilia is one of the biggest Italian two-wheeler manufacturers in the world and it seems that they have established quite a big fan base as the company is preparing to launch some very interesting products in the coming months. Just a few months back, the company launched the Aprilia RS 150 and the Aprilia Tuono 150 at the Auto Expo 2018. The Indian consumers were delighted and impressed with both the models.
The Aprilia Tuono 150 seems to be very attractive with a full sports body look that has got its inspiration for the design from the classic model 1100cc Tuono V4. Aprilia is going to launch the bike in the 150cc segment which is one of the most popular in the Indian two-wheeler industry. Let us have a look at some important details regarding the Aprilia Tuono 150 down below.
Aprilia Tuono 150 Engine & Transmission
The Aprilia Tuono 150 is going to receive its power from the 150cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected and liquid-cooled, BSIV-compliant, petrol engine. With the help of this engine, the bike is going to generate around 18 HP at 10,000 rpm along with around 14 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. The engine has also been coupled with a 6-speed gearbox that will help the riders to control their speed in the most efficient manner.
The engine promises to deliver a brilliant performance even when the bike is running at high speeds for a long time. The transmission is smooth and the gear changes without too much effort. The bike is a quick shifter and therefore you will have no problem in managing the overall stability and balance of the bike. The motorcycle will surely provide you with unmatchable performance.
Aprilia Tuono 150 Braking & Safety
Aprilia has made sure that the braking and safety features of the Tuono 150 are absolutely premium. The bike features a 300mm disc at the front along with a 218mm disc at the rear. The Standard 2-Channel ABS is standard on the bike and that is very welcome news to all the riders who take safety as their top priority. The ABS helps to stabilize the vehicle in a much better manner and the overall effectiveness is increased. Hence, with such improved safety systems, you will be able to enjoy a more convenient ride. It is being said that Aprilia is the first to bring the Upside Down forks to the bike as standard which is going to be the first that we have seen in the Indian markets.
Aprilia Tuono 150 Competitors
The Aprilia Tuono 150 seems to have more than a few competitors in the Indian market. It is going to clash head-to-head with the Yamaha FZ-S 2.0, the Honda CBD Hornet, and the Suzuki Gixxer. All of the other bikes are really popular and have a spectacular fan base in this segment. The Bajaj Pulsar Ns 200 and the TVS Apache 200 4V also seems to be a strong competitor to the Aprilia bike.
With so many popular bikes that are already present in the market and the people are spending a good amount of money to acquire them, the Aprilia Tuono 150 will need to prove too good to be neglected by the Indian consumers.

The sides are made of complete metal with a quirky design frame and appear like a classic.
