I agree about the sound. Closest from the japs right now is the cross plane in the R1.

My guess is it would be pretty good on them roads then.

My dad took out the factory tuano and he is in love with it. So much so he is probably going to part x his s1000rr for one.
He prefers the riding position and the huge low end grunt of the 1100 for road riding. To be honest there probably isnt much faster than the tuano on the uk roads.
The 1st gears still a bit tall but 1 tooth on the front should solve that.
Plus it can still perform on track.makes perfect sense really.
At the mo im sticking with my zx10r. Youd expect id be dissapointed getting back on a bike worth 10 thousand less than the rsv4 but i tell you what i just love the feel of my zx10r. The way ive got it set up i get so much feedback which gives me so much confidence on it.

I've seen conversion from the RSV4 to the Tuono.. Great bike for sure!

Dude! Watching that guy pull parts off and toss then in a box... looking at his garage org skills... my head hurts!

Reading the comments section about warranty due to the mileage (2500) and the way Aprilia ended up blowing him off. Not surprised in the least. Sounds a lot like Ford to be honest lol.

One of the guys I know who raced a ZX-10R for years, switched to the RSV4. Claims you can reduce the weight issue. But he claims much better bike for racing and he's good. Claims no comparison for handling but this guy knows his shit too....
