Re: Aprilia Tuono 'Racing' Bike Unveiled
As far as I'm concerned, this is the most exciting news of 2003. Will it be available in the US? How many? When? How much? Don't tease us.....please deliver the goods in sufficient quantities, at a reasonable price. If so, sign me up. Enjoy the ride. Cheers, Jack

Sure, it looks great, tests well, and is less fillling, but - "naked"? There's still not a cylinder head in sight. It's about as naked as a Republican on a first date.

About as naked as ANY of the girls I dated in High School on ANY date :-(

I guess I am showing my age, but I recall when a bike with that much plastic (or carbon fiber, in this case) would have been considered a race replica. In my mind, a bike with ANY kind of fairing or windscreen is not naked, and certainly not one with any significant part of the motor covered.
