Tuono picture thread

I searched and didn't find one, so figured I get one going since I finally have a few pics of my bike. Plus, this way maybe we'll see how many Tuono owners there really are here; I know of at least 2 others, but haven't seen them around anymore.

Definitely not the classic looks of the 9'er, but it's grown on me.

A few shots from this past weekend.

Excellent! Same place you ordered from before? Going to install mine soon.

Was hoping you'd find an all black one for me

Some dead-end backroad up near Tennessee


Hard to see in that pic, but the seat cowl is done


The grays do match between it and the rear cowl, it's just the angle of the light throws it off.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and like the look with it installed. Do you have one for yours?


ps. I must not ride hard enough. Rode 140 miles and the tank wasn't even full when I left I did ride the last 20 with the low fuel light though.

Yeap, my came with the cowl and 15T sprocket from Aprilia. They used to include those extras on early models.
I'm guessing you don't have map 2. My light comes on anywhere from 90 to 110. (normally 90) Reserve is more than a gallon though... but I don not like riding with the light on...it's not fun as I have to keep an eye on the odo.

Yeah, still map 1. I figure if I get some pipes that I'll send the ECU to AF1; maybe over the winter. Enjoying the slightly better mileage for now, and the front wheel is pretty light as it is

Nice, I like the white/silver combo. Plus, we've dominated this thread with Diablo black; it's good to get some variety. Did you get the bags with it, or did the seller keep them?

Had the seller throw in both hard cases and the home made rack as part of the deal, score! Luggage options for the Tuono are NOT cheap by any means so that was really nice and just added icing to the cake.

nothing wrong with that

a few mods I did over the winter.....could pass up on those OEM carbon fiber goodies, rearsets and OEM exhaust brackets/pillion pegs delete I found dirt cheap... Also a few pics of the radial brake/clutch master conversion.
