We're not too sure about the extended swingarm, but otherwise the Vilner Aprilia Stingray looks good. And with Ms Karolina Bratanova sat on the bike, hmmm...  :-)

What happens when Bulgaria-based custom shop, Vilner, get their hands on an Aprilia RSV Tuono? The bike gets a new front fender, a heavily modified headlamp unit and LED turn indicators, side-mounted spoilers/shrouds with air vents designed to keep the engine cool, reshaped fuel tank and bits of high-quality leather wrapping for some of the plastics. And lo! and behold, there you have it – the Vilner Aprilia Stingray, finished in a nice shade of metallic brown.

Apart from the mods mentioned above, the Aprilia Stingray also gets tinted taillamps, black-painted exhausts, an extended swingarm (15cm longer than the stock item) and matt black paint on the lower part of the chassis. The wheels have also been repainted and their silver colour goes quite well with the rest of the bike we think.
