- Latest versions of Aprilia RSV4 and Aprilia Tuono V4 added to thyssenkrupp carbon wheels portfolio
- Braided carbon wheels for over 30 different motorcycle models
The ultra-light braided carbon wheels from thyssenkrupp Carbon Components are now also available for the current versions of the Aprilia RSV4 and the Aprilia Tuono V4. The thyssenkrupp carbon wheels portfolio includes more than 30 different motorcycle models. With the two new additions from the Italian motorcycle manufacturer based in Noale, the diversity of the model range continues to grow. The carbon wheels are available exclusively in Style 2 for the Aprilia RSV4 and Aprilia Tuono V4. The design of the wheels is reminiscent of human muscle strands and thus underlines the powerful appearance of the entire vehicle.
But it is not only visual aspects that convince customers of the only worldwide street-legal carbon wheels: riders of a motorcycle like the RSV4/Tuono V4, whose home is the racetrack, place the highest demands on performance and handling. Compared with the standard forged aluminum wheels, the ultra-lightweight thyssenkrupp Carbon Components wheels make a significant contribution to improving acceleration, braking and cornering behavior.
CEO Dr. Jens Werner: "Even from a distance you can recognize an Aprilia by its unmistakable sound. Equipped with our ultra-lightweight carbon wheels in a unique design, closer inspection makes the adrenaline level rise even further."
thyssenkrupp Carbon Components develops and produces carbon wheels for automotive and motorcycle manufacturers and also supplies end customers with motorcycle wheels. The company in Kesselsdorf near Dresden, Germany was founded in 2012.
All carbon wheels by thyssenkrupp Carbon Components are manufactured highly automated with a patented braiding technology on the world’s largest radial braiding machine. Thus, it is possible to achieve the highest quality and lightweight requirements at the same time.
