The standard class is awash with great motorcycles. It should be: Standards are reliable riding companions—comfortable, sporty bikes that afford room for a passenger and kicks for the rider. But the best standards transcend basic transportation and compete for our affection with much more purpose-focused motorcycles—ones designed with the track in mind, or for covering hundreds of miles at a stretch, or for managing urban commutes. We ask those same things of our standards, but all at once. And nothing delivers like the 2018 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR, making it a back-to-back winner in the category.
