Whilst reading the article, I wondered if the bike will come to the US.

Fun to read and very descriptive article! The new Tuono sounds like a total no holds barred no excuses blast.

The bike looks tiny in the photos. It really is a Superbike with a handlebar and small fairing.

For some reason, North America is a red-headed stepchild for Aprilia/Piaggio. The Tuono isn't scheduled to come here until early 2012. And we haven't been to an Aprilia launch in years. I think they could sell a lot more bikes over here if Piaggio HQ would spend a little on marketing on this continent...

Sure. If BMW can capture almost 20% of the sportbike market in one year, seems like Aprilia could make some inroads as well.

Especially since new Japanese bikes are now going to glow in the dark for a few decades.
