i have a 2016 Tuono 1100RR and its brilliant on the street. Great character. Fun as shit. I have a 2005 ZX10, which feels more comfortable than the newer Gen ZX10s (based on sitting only, never rode one). Itll keep up with a "true sportbike" on the road without question. Rather a comfy bike to ride too. Much much better than riding a clip-on bike on the street.
Indeed man! I concur! Glad to hear you are enjoying the Tuono so much. I'd love to have one!
To the real OP of this thread: here is to your journey in finding the perfect bikes for you and your type of riding!!!
Please forgive me for clogging up your thread, but maybe my journey will help guide yours.
It is interesting the way my ownership of motorcycles has progressed or regressed (lol) as I have gotten older. 15 years ago all I wanted was a 600cc "sport bike" and I had a bunch over the years. 5 years ago I got tired of riding a 600cc on the street because of their lack of torque and buzzy highway antics (among other things) and wanted 1000 cc "sport bike". 3 Years ago I got into track riding and started hating riding any sport bike on the street. Mostly because once you have really put in time and effort to ride the motorcycle the way it is designed, it is hard for me to go back to riding on the street with everyone else. Now my Gen 5 and R6 are dedicated track bikes.
But the more track days I do, the more I am getting sick of riding on the street at all. Unless it is one of the few places that I can ride hardish. But even on my dedicated street bike, 16 GSX-S1000, street riding is loosing its luster. I think I have a track sickness. My only regret is not getting into track riding/amatuer racing sooner in life!
So I try and tell people you don't want a 600cc for the street. It simply is one of the worst choices for riding on the street. It lacks many things i have come to expect out of of performance bike that is driven on the street. Comfort (riding position: handlebars and less aggressive footpeg locations), plush suspension, torque, easily accessible power (power delivery that is designed for the street not top end performance that is needed on the track), electronics, etc.
I tell people buy a 800cc-1200cc upright (naked or faired) that is DESIGNED to be ridden on the street and you will be in heaven for street riding (z1000/Z900/Ninja 1000, GSX-S1000/F (I have the naked), Tuono, Monster, CB1000R, FZ10, FZ09, etc.) and still be able to keep up with people riding hardish in the corners on the street and PULL on 600cc in a straight line. But everyone wants the "sport bike" look. And I understand it, I used to be there too.
Honestly at this point on my life, if I had to have one motorcycle for the street and the track, it would be either a FZ10SP or a 2017+ Tuono Factory.
