The Aprilia Tuono 1000 was a naked motorcycle manufactured by Aprilia in 2002. The bike was based on the Aprilia RSV Mille. In addition, it shared the same engine, transmission, frame, and some of the suspension components with the RSV 1000 R superbike.

Since 2002, the bike received a lot of changes, retaining the same character as the first machine produced. It was designed as a streetfighter complemented by numerous electronic aids, such as multi-level traction control, ABS, wheelie control, launch control, and Aprilia Quick Shift (AQS).

In 2002, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Aprilia Tuono 1000, a naked streetfighter-styled machine with a high handlebar that offered excellent control. The bike was presented at the 2002 Intermot show.

Aesthetically, the bike had standard features, such as a front cowl with a large multi-reflector headlight unit, a small windscreen, a two-piece dual seat, a two-into-one exhaust system with an oversized muffler mounted on the right side, and five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels.

It was built around a box-section twin-spar aluminum frame with a 43 mm upside-down Ohlins fork with 120 mm of travel on the front and an aluminum swingarm tied to an adjustable Boge shock absorber with 135 mm of travel on the rear.

In the performance department, the 2002 Aprilia Tuono 1000 had installed a 998cc four-stroke V-twin liquid-cooled engine underneath its fuel tank, boasting 126 hp at 9,500 rpm and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) torque at 7,250 rpm.
