Thoughts on a first gen Tuono?
I've been eyeing this 2003 Aprilia Tuono for about 2 weeks now. Its in Michigan about 2 hours away so I haven't seen it personally, but I've been talking back and forth with teh seller, seeing pics, vids, etc.
Its a 2003 with 17k miles, he's asking mid to upper $4k. He's selling to buy a Tuono V4.
Bike has 20mm Penske cartridges up front, Penske double clicker rear, Sargeant seat, Akro race headers, Mkiv carbon dual pipes, PC3, proper dyno tune, Acculign rearsets, ASV levers, ZG shield, etc.
It has the standard Brembo rims/brakes.
I've always been a Jap guy so I'm a little hesitant to get an Italian/Euro bike, but Aprilia's tend to seem pretty reliable.
Looking for a big twin and that tends to lead me back to the Euro bikes.
What are your thoughts on the first gen Tuono's?
Any other bikes that come to mind that are comparable?
