I gotta say, this bike often gets overlooked as Aprilia is not a household name... but those who are overlooking it are really missing out. It is a great bike, comfortable riding position, and man does it pull. It can easily make a 21 year old out of a 30 something-plus man. A complete hooligan bike which can also cruise city streets. If you have not straddled an Aprilia, make it a point to do so!

The Tuono instills confidence right from the get-go. What a great naked liter bike. It was soooo hard to keep it under 6000 RPM those first miles, but the huge torque and relative smooth-running at low rev's helped immensely. Then 7500 rev's for another little bit. Took 10 days of after-work evenings to break it in; just could not get back on my Ducati ST3 without feeling it was an unrefined beast. The Tuono is now THE ONE for solo rides and such a pleasure in the twisties. Not a single issue with it... the lack of a fuel gauge was at first, but a few tanks later you get confidence in the range between petrol stops. The tires (Metzlers) are superb, albeit a bit too soft for lots of road miles (it is, after all, a track machine it would seem). Must slow down as 140 MPH feels soooo good on this baby. The multi-function display is easy to read, easy to use, and keeps tack of all the important stuff. Now I want the RSV Mille!

This bike will give you that major grin factor every time you ride it. It is a highly tuned superbike in an upright package that is flat out thrilling to ride. Right out of the gate it has major torque and just keeps on pulling to well over 9k RPM. Ride and suspension are tight and responsive, in fact a little stiff on slow street rides. I have owned a Ducati Monster and test rode the new Ducati's: 999,S4RS Monster and 1000 Multistrada. One ride on the Tuono R and its all over, you will be hooked!

This bike by far is one of the most total package bikes on the market! I travel some 86 miles one way to work, and there is never a dull moment on the road. The powerband on this bike is great, not to mention the handling. I have all sorts of upgrades such as the shotgun pipes a powercommand etc, just to be sure those "PONIES" are there when I need them.

My 2005 Tuono is the best motorcycle I have ever owned, and I have had several. This bike gives you the best of both worlds of comfort and sport. I just got finished taking it on a 300 mile back road ride with no fatigue, never got bored and stayed in front of the pack. If you do not like wheelies, this is not a bike for you. I just installed the Aprilia double shotgun exhaust and e-prom and all I can say is wow. I have installed exhaust systems/e-proms on several of my bikes and have noticed a minimal improvement but not with the Aprilia. They are really hiding the raw power in this bike but the exhaust and chip make it come to life. Keeping the front end on the ground is not an option in 1st, 2nd or 3rd gear. I do not recommend this bike to anyone because I like being the only guy with one on bike nights and on the Sunday rides.

So far, the reliability is good but then the bike isn't even broken in yet. But the Rotax engine has good pedigree, so I feel confident that it will hold up well. Hopefully the rest of the bike would be the same. Performance is awesome. Love the broad power and torque bands. But the front and rear brakes could bite a bit harder. I like a bit more stopping power. Comfort isn't bad for a crotch rocket thanks to the raised and flat handle bar. Foot pegs are not too far backward. It makes for a nice street riding position similar to my BMW Rockster. The seat doesn't offer much cushion, but that's rather expected on these sort of bikes. I can ride around 100-miles before butt discomfort start to set in and even then it's not that bad thanks to the flat and wide seat. Overall, it's a great bike.

This has been a replacement for my 2002 Ducati Supersport. The qulity, make, finish of this bike is way superior to "my" Ducati. As for performance, this is the best bike I have ever ridden. It has the power and handling of a race bike with comfort of a cruiser. Really agile with an ever-ready engine torque in any gear. Amongst the best features, I could mention the agility, engine, and gear box and breakes. Shifting is very precise. I never expected such a performance and qulity in the same package. But my faivorite is the breaks. It has the shortest stopping of any bikes in my area. Truely confidence inspiring. Best bike to my openion --- if one can afford it.
