2004 Aprilia Pegaso Tuscany Tibet

Aprilia Pegaso Tuscany-TibetAprilia Pegaso Tuscant-Tibet

The Pegaso's engine is still the world's most sophisticated production single, thanks to its five radial valve head and fuel injection system with two 34 mm throttle bodies and one injector per inlet.

System management is fully electronic and based on a sophisticated network of sensors (crankshaft, engine, air intake temperature, air intake filter box pressure, coolant temperature, and throttle position) that ensures perfect control over the injection of the air-fuel mix as well as maximum smoothness and consistent power delivery. These solutions not only optimise delivery, torque and power at low engine speeds; they increase maximum torque at the same time.

The fuel injection control unit recognises throttle opening and closing movements and the Dynamic Ignition Advance Control (DIAC) System varies injection and ignition parameters to keep power delivery as smooth as possible.

Other important features of this sophisticated engine are:

  1. a high inertia generator that helps smooth out torque and make the engine even more fluid and elastic.
  2. a fall sensor, which interrupts the flow of fuel and turns off the engine in the event of a fall or accident.
  3. The two in one in two exhaust system has also been improved to reduce noise without penalising performance. The exhaust is fitted as standard with a catalytic converter and emissions lie well within Euro 1 limits.

    The suspension setup of the Tuscany-Tibet is completely new and reflects the total use of this special machine. The Tuscany-Tibet features a 45 mm Marzocchi hydraulic fork that is 26 mm longer than on the basic Pegaso, raising the riding position for easier and safer control over rough surfaces. The fork is specially calibrated to achieve the best possible compromise between ease of riding, control under braking and smooth bump absorption over rough ground. Wheel travel is also longer at 175 mm.

    The rear monoshock is brand new too and 25 mm longer to raise the rear of the bike. It is also adjustable in spring preload and rebound.

    Preload can even be adjusted without getting off the bike using a conveniently located knob that provides quick and easy setup adjustment to match different load conditions and riding styles. The standard setup is designed for maximum comfort and versatility. To ensure excellent grip even off road, the Pegaso Tuscany-Tibet is fitted with homologated knobbly tyres.

    The Brembo front brake features a 300 mm stainless steel disk and floating calliper with twin 32 mm pistons. The rubber brake line features new inside tubing that gives better feel and more controlled braking on difficult, loose surfaces.

    >p>The Brembo rear brake features a 220 mm stainless steel disk and calliper with 34 mm piston.

    The entire braking system is optimised for maximum efficiency, stopping power, instant action and responsive feel under all riding conditions.

    The Tuscany-Tibet is special in its components and equipment too. The new, larger windshield offers improved protection off-road and at speed on the motorway.

    The new seat, raised by 2 cm, gives a higher riding position for easier control off-road and for effortless movement between standing and sitting position.

    The handlebars now have a cross-member just like on professional enduros to make it easier to fit accessories and extra instruments (road books, clocks, etc.).

    The unstoppable travelling spirit of the bike is further enhanced by the 30 litre top box, the same luggage fitted to the Caponord Rally-Raid to provide for safe storage of personal effects.

    All the components used on the Pegaso Tuscany-Tibet, like those on any Aprilia, are the very best available. In particular, this version of the Pegaso is equipped with:

  4. specially designed rubber engine mountings to eliminate jerks at low revs
  5. elegant, rational, and fully functional electrical controls on the handlebars
  6. multi-focal headlight with 55 W bulb for perfect visibility under even the most critical conditions
  7. comprehensive, easy to read instrument cluster.
  8. The Pegaso Tuscany-Tibet is a single cylinder motorcycle with a passion for travel. To enhance its touring talents, Aprilia is offering a range of dedicated accessories, manufactured with the same high technology that goes into all Aprilia products.
