Superlative riding experience!


Electronic problem. Connection from the computer to the injection system.

General Comments:

I have owned more than 20 bikes in my years, and for many years I raced.

My Speed Triple was a very good bike. This Tuono is breathtaking. The more I ride this bike, the more I realise that the envelope of its capability extends.

Seriously fun bike for the experienced and not the faint hearted.

I recommend this bike to anyone who is an experienced rider that can command the power that this bike delivers, and enjoy the handling that it is capable of. A superb riding package!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
