I'm not, because if I had one, I couldn't go on my favorite routes in these parts with that sad sub-100 mile tank range.  Sad



I haven't checked the specs yet.  They didn't fit it with a bigger tank?  That sucks.  I get 32-35mpg on mine regardless of how hard I beat on it.  Or since I'm ALWAYS beating on it, it has 40mpg potential.   Bigsmile

4.5 gallon tank, and a low of 23mpg when thrashing hell out of it.  Be gentle and you might see 33mpg with a tailwind.  That's the price you pay for having 165hp on tap.

I thought they would have gotten the Tuono to be a bit more frugal then the RSV4 with a re-mapped ECU.  Still looks pretty sinister.  Can't wait to see how it fares when it goes into "shoot out" articles in the magazines this year.

All the Euro testers have done the comparisons, since it's been out for a better part of a year there.  It usually wins handily in every category but range.

Aprilia knows how to make a comfortable seat for non-Italian asses when they have to.  



Yup.
The Futura has the best seat I've ever tried.

I love the Futura.  I would have bought one, but I wanted something different to keep the RSV-R company in the garage.  Smile

And look ma! No shaft!  Which will of course doom it with most of the ADV types. Sad

That said, Aprilia sure knows how to make a pretty DSSA, don't they?

Actually, it's the other way around...the V-Strom is a cheap copy of the original Caponord.  Smile

At some point I am going to have to face reality(including my 34" inseam and cranky left knee) and probably move over to the this type of bike. I was thinking a MG Stelvio or Triumph Explorer but man...this bike is sexy!!!  Inlove
