Bulgarian customizer Vilner tunes the Aprilia Tuono 1000 R into Aprilia Stingray with 13 design elements

Andrea Divirgilio / January 23, 2013

Acclaimed interior tuning specialists with innovative thinking, the Bulgarian customizer Vilner which earlier impressed us with the customized Land Rover designed for Russian oligarch and their high-end $62,780 Vilner’s audio system inspired by the Rimac Concept One supercar, has now dabbled into motorcycle design. And in the latest two-wheeler project, Vilner gives the already cool-looking motorbike 2010 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R a more aggressive, bold and futuristic makeover, producing what is called as the custom Vilner Aprilia Stingray. However, the Stingray name of this exquisite motorbike which boasts of 13 impressive design elements, reminds us of the recently released Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7’, which is an entirely new machine that emerges with the aesthetic impact and the performance prowess worthy of the Stingray emblem.

Further, the fuel tanks has 2 angular peaks which gives the motorbike a more hunched profile than the relatively flat stock tank, while the fuel tank is located in the recess between these two peaks.

Notably, the curve of the additions of fuel tank extends downward along 2 new side spoilers with two vents each, which impressively serve as a means to lead away the hot air coming out from the engine.

Loacted directly below the fuel tank where a rider would grip his thighs, the side plastics are wrapped in two-toned leather that extends up to the seat.
