Seems as though Yossef has run out of adjectives, which has to be the first time, for him.



I wonder what he would have written if he took some tranquilizer drugs first. (Judging from what he wrote, most likely they would have burned off in about 5 minutes..)



I've come to terms with advancing age, more or less, but the Aprilia report makes me wish I were about 50 years younger, at least for one ride on the Tuono. With an open road and no law enforcement around, of course.

Quanto costo?



How much will it cost? More importantly - will it be available - for REAL - in the US? When I went to the Boston-area Aprilia dealer last summer, he laughed me out the door - he did not have anything to sell me and did not even EXPECT to have product.

Default Get it right next time!

Maybe you can now redeem yourselves....

A comparo with bikes more closely related in class: Aprilia Tuono, Buell XB12, Ducati S4Rs, Honda 919, Kawasake Z1000, Triumph Speed Triple, and Yamaha FZ1. Do the latest versions of each. Extra points if you keep your licenses!

Wrap speed and eating launch? Still lucky for me I didnt fit on the old one, doubtfull I'll get my knees under that sharply cut tank of the new one.



When is the KTM 950 Supermoto due out? No knee worries there. Supermoto's are made for big oaf's like me.

wow...Another Italian money pit. OH, can't find one? Gee maybe there's a dealer within 500 miles or so. No, only 700 miles away!! They can't get one? No parts? Welcome to Itlalian bike ownership...I think L'll take my chances with the avian flu, it might turn out better. At least it's not as hideous as a Moto Guzzi.
