Those tires are balled up and toasted. Nice work!

The Ape sounds the business. Would love to hear it with a free flowing exhaust. Also, I might have a chance of surviving on the Ape, given the better sorted nature of it's power delivery. Smooth well mapped power delivery is important always, but especially when we are talking 1000cc superbikes.

Fun test guys, enjoyed the video too!

"Tire slippage (on the MV) is determined by spikes in engine speed and are curtailed if deemed appropriate by the ECU."

So what does the TC do when the crappy fuel mapping spikes the engine speed?

I'll take the V4 over the I4 any day.

And I'll continue to scour the used ads for a gently used Tuono.

Well, Buz, either a V-4 Tuono will be gently used or the owner will be in jail or traction.

We never experienced such a thing during our testing, but spikes due to tire slip occur at a faster rate than power application due to crappy fueling. So the system should be able to detect which is which.

That's what I thought when I rode one.

I won't make it to 49.
