I can see a Superduke 1290 GT on the cards one day, but the Gen 2 Tuono is staying all be it semi retired

I've always wondered: is the tank's shape uncomfortable when you're riding? That "horn" right there looks menacing...Wink


Too busy trying to find neutral to worry about comfort

There's one of those at my work in a container with the usual grenaded engine,it cost so much to keep running the Boss bought another one just to have a source of spares as the best one breaks around him.

Heap of Italian sh*te, looks nice and sounds epic on a good race exhaust system, but like AndiRSV on here I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole knowing their failure record,would have to be a Duc for me if I ever felt the need for another bike.

Not sure if I'm ill but I've started looking at the Suzuki GSX-S1000. I know it's an inline 4 but still think it would be a great bike to run about on.

Yep mine was no different. I rode it to destruction basically and fixed it cheap and sold it on to a collector that just wanted it for show

I've still got a few old videos floating about of it at brands Hatch and iom TT on my trusty old vhs gaffa tapped on the tank camera

Wow wow wow

I'm sure those engines had something to do with maico?

I'd often see them in side cars or whatever their called at moto cross race days. Power sounded so deep, like it was barely off tick over at times

What a project

I'm on the lookout for a CBR1000R in the TT legends colours, but the RSV will be staying.

A truly savage beast, very demanding but so rewarding if you get it right! And my God does she punish you if you forget to push on the footpegs while accelerating out of a corner! Pull the handlebars and she will furiously shake her front wheel.
Many people for this reason fitted steering dampers on it, but I kinda liked this wild side. It really forced you to be 100% committed.
Unfortunately nowadays it's quite hard to find a nice "straight" one, as most of them have been through a lot...

Good shout, I had one in 04 and it's got to be the most lairy bike I've ridden. The front end on the power was so vague it would sh*t you up on every corner exit, great fun tho' and hardly any around now.

My track bike is an 04 ZX10R, it's scary quick compared to the Tuono. It's quicker than I'll ever be!
