For once, getting naked will save you some money.

 Ridden a Tuono V4? If the answer is yes, and you don't already own one, you know getting one is your goal. The Tuono V4 last year won Cycle World's Superbike of the Year , and this year won Motorcyclist Magazine's Naked Bike of the Year.

This year, it's a great bargain, too. Aggressive price cuts list the Tuono V4R APRC at $13,999—the same cost as some Japanese literbikes but with loads more character and the practicality a naked bike promises. This is a sophisticated yet frighteningly raw machine—and one that consistently makes every member of our staff laugh inside his helmet.

In honor of this exceptional bike and the awards it's achieved in it's short existence, scratch that $13,999 price tag as Aprilia is offering $1,000 off the MSRP of new 2013 Tuono V4s!

The Tuono V4 is arguably the best current superbike for the street on the planet. Knife edge handling and exhilarating engine performance taken from the RSV4 with upright ergonomics suited for street and back roads riding. Combine that with Aprilia's unrivaled electronics package, APRC, and it's easy to see why this bike has obliterated the competition.

Starting October 1st and continuing until November 30th, there is just a short window of opportunity to take advantage of the savings and ride home on an Italian thoroughbred. If you haven't had the chance to ride a Tuono V4, please take some time to come into an AF1 location and test ride one. You won't be disappointed.
