919 or Aprilia

So I love my 919, I haven't done much to it, drilled the exhaust and put frame sliders on it. I came across a 2003 Aprilia Tuono with lots done to it like racing rims, Power comander exhaust, maybe more not real sure. about 10k on the clock. I have 8k on the 919.

Think I should trade? any advice, things to consider? Thanks

Are you going through the same dealer as your 919?

If so, just give them the extra 1500 and take the Tuono. You won't be disappointed.

It is a little harder to ride though, especially when splitting lanes. But she really shines in the twisties and on the track. The Mille motor is bullet-proof, made by Rotax of Austria (look them up).

It's basically Aprilia's race bike without the body panels, and a pair of handlebars instead of the clip-ons.

Keep us posted on your decision.

BTW The Tuono has a soul, unlike the xxx.
