Aprilia Tuono 1000 R Factory

Is that wrong? Am I cheating? Öhlins front / rear shocks, brembo brakes, Akrapovic exhaust, Öhlins adj steering damper and a much nicer front end. Might have to upgrade in a year or 2.





Alright, let me have it!

No flaming from this direction. One of the guys I ride with every once in a while has an 04 Tuono and it's the dog's dangly bit for sure. Great power, corners very very well, COMFORTABLE SADDLE! I wouldn't hesitate to add one to the stable, but not gonna leave my sexy white S3 for an Italian chick! ;) ;D

I rode one a couple of times and I just didn't like it, it must be that twin thing ???
I can understand that limey, the 1st few times I rode a twin, I just didn't appreciate them at all. But the more ya ride one, the more ya appreciate one. :violent1: ;D

Looks fugly to me. I like the wheels and forks though. Too showy in a 'transformers' kind of way. No flow in the aesthetics of the design.

The only naked that comes close to the speedy in looks is the Brutale 910. Tounos sound mean, but they are fugly IMHO. Now the MV, that engine was designed by Ferrari. Just not a fan of aprilla, kind of like some mitsubishis to me, I want to like the Evo X, but I don't trust them. Mv has been around longer than most know. If you have never seen a brutale in the flesh, they are beautiful, lots of details. I hate to say it, but they do a better job of fit and finish than triumph. They also cost like $15k+. S3 for me, thanks.

The Tuono is fucking gross.... I don't care if the bike had a wet warm spot under the seat where you could stick your dick... I would never own one! The only naked that comes close to the speed 3 is the duc S4rs... Speed 3 best naked for the dollar.

???I think its missing a cylinder or two.

How 'bout this, instead?



Marzocchi front forks, brembos, ASD swingarm, Extreme Technologies rear shock, 135HP, 86 FT/lb 1130cc TRIPLE engine, and as ugly as the Aprilia

Plus, you won't see many on the street (hear that, Tekmoe?)

Amen Limey.

I've ridden a TNT 1130, a demo at a Benelli dealer. Talk about being underwhelmed. Speedy was only 2 weeks old at the time, and I couldn't wait to get back on it. The TNT had a seat like a plank, felt harsh and vibrated, and had to be dragged down into corners, and when it was hot had to be coaxed into starting. All in all, for the money, a heap of shit. IMNSHO.

Not to mention that Benelli is now a wholly owned Chinese Company. I know that wont bother some people but it's enough for me to say :finger: Benelli. Kiss my Red-White-Blue American ass.
