Cool bike and nice review. The 750 version of this was a gas. This one is killer I bet.

Sounds like an awesome machine but the price, I imagine, is ugly.

Holy crap, I've seen the next addition to my garage. I'll sell the Tuono for one of those (that's a hard to trade to pull off!). I traded bikes for a session with a guy on a 910, which pulled like a drunken elephant, but I'll bet this bike is out of this world.

Buz had one for a while. His main complaint was the fuel consumption and the relatively small tank. I believe he was getting just over a hundred miles to the tank.

Just something to take into account as I believe the Tuno offers a longer range

This kind of exotica could find a market niche. Ferrari sells nowadays 6500 cars a year, well above the previous official production cap of 5000 - and the waiting list has still crept to 2 years long. Maybe this is the beauty what HD sees in MV.

I was thinking the same thing; the price is listed as "TBA" on all the sites I checked. That must stand for "To Be Astronomical." However, it seems to compare favorably with the B-King, which is very reasonably priced. I know a lot of people hate it, but I think it's haught sheit.

I do like that fatass 120 tire on the front though. That seems to be an emerging (or re-emerging to be more accurate) design trend, and I like it.

Depending on how aggressively I ride I can do about 120 miles before the reserve light kicks on.

Wow, heady times to be a motorcyclist indeed. That thing is scary...
