I'll bet that Sean Alexander is jealous that Yossef got his hands on it first.

I freakin' LOVE the Tuono. But I'd never buy one 'cause the State would be forcing me to walk within about 10 days after delivery.

What a neat bike. I hope it has the same seat, peg, tank set-up; that way I won't have enough leg room. And there is no way I'm spending a grand to move the pegs around on a new $13k bike.

Looks like fun! I'll take two! Please?!



Speaking of fun, this looks like it would be a blast to ride also:

If Ducati makes it we might get a chance at it, since it seems that they send most of their stuff our way...

So did Aprilia intentionally get all of the old Kawasaki wheels from the mid 80's sportbikes?

Default Now if we could just get this engine in a Buell

". Some will say that the Tuono's beauty is in fact in that light technical "ugliness", that twisted and subversive streetfighter Frankensteinian charm.'

You nailed it Yosef. Hire a plastic surgeon for this beast.



Can you imagine the Tuono's engine in a pretty Buell Firebolt. I would be the first one to buy one in Seattle...98 kW (133 HP) at 9,500 rpm. What is the redline on a Buell 6,000-7000 and torque for the Tuono is 10.4 kgm (102 Nm) at 8,750 rpm. [/b]



Can the American motorcycle industry build a engine like this Eric??



Great review Yosef thanks fun read

The Tuono is a couple of cans of Krylon matte black from being just about perfect. Even a KTM super motto in go-to-hell orange is prettier than this thing.



I need a better paying job: first, to pay for the thing & its new paint and second, for ticket & bail money. My God I love this bike but would someone at Aprilia go talk to MV Agusta.
