no decals so looks like a respray not sure its a factory colour
 
base model so no carbon or ohlins although I thought late ones came with the ohlins forks as standard but I'm not a gen2 standard
 
all comes down to price and history etc.

I think that is a genuine colour scheme. There was also an orange one with no decals too. 

The forks are OEM as well. Only Tuono Factory's came with Ohlins. They fitted Ohlins to non-factory RSV gen 2's but not Tuonos. If that all makes sense

I think that's a pretty much standard late model gen 2 Tuono. Only things that don't look standard are front wheel rim tape, aftermarket screen, levers, crash bungs and gold reservoir covers. 

Looks really nice.

Check behind the exhausts on the swing arms for dents from toppling off the side stand. Might not bother you but a huge percentage of Tuono's and RSV's have this. There should be a cowl to go in place of the pillion seat too, unless the previous owners have sold it off or lost it. The clocks can mist up on some of them, check it out if you test ride it. Especially on a sunny day.

That's a 2009 spec Tuono, I think they did it in Orange metallic as well.  100% should have aprilia on the tank in black lettering. The later bikes have the text higher on the tank so when leant away from you it's not so easy to see.
 
Here is a better angle pic so you can see the text on the tank

Aprilia made 4 colour versions for the Tuono in that 08/09 year.

Ice White
Shadow silver
Orange dream
Black

Individual importers had the choice of which colours they took. I'm faiirly sure i've seen an orange one for sale used in the uk but not the silver one personally. Doesn't mean to say Aprilia UK didn't bring any in so it might be an official uk bike. Aprilia were struggling to shift bikes in 09 as the v4 was imminent so not many v2's of that era around.

In 09/10 The silver and orange got dropped.

Orange ones were certainly UK models! Big smile (No import on the V5 and came from Aprilia Merseyside anywho...)
