    LOL - I don't think Benelli has anything to worry about

    That thing looks like a retarded VStrom
    "Tuono doesn't want to gently take your hand and guide you on a trip, it wants to rip it off and run away with it! I always get the feeling that to ride a Tuono you have to be a real man, prepared to fight it every step of the way, where as on the Triumph you can have an off day and not be left feeling inadequate"

    Beau,

    I beg to differ. Marabese Design penned that prototype MM3. Marabese is a well known and classy designer responsible for the work of some old and new Guzzi's, including Breva, Griso and Norge.

    Personally I like all these new Moto Morini bikes, especially the MM3..., but again, you are free to have your opinion.

    'Nuff said.... that new Morini is uglier than the MultiStruddle. Its like a big Pegaso with 1098 pipes and Speed3 headlamps.

    LOL, I can see you do not appreciate a good big traillie!!! That bike is what the new Capo should be... Of course you don't like the Capo either...

    Thought about and done it

    Just traded in my Tuono for a Corsaro Veloce (yesterday) - like this 1



    The motor is sooo smooth, a lot more torque & power than the tuono. Obviously still running mine in so cannot give it much beans but the demonstrator I rode a few weeks ago was awesome. With the supplied race ecu fitted and baffles removed from the tergi's it sounds mean as hell

    Build quality looks very good for such a small firm, similar to tuono using quality parts for suspension and brakes. The in house designed engine is a peach and very impressive.

    A bit expensive compared to the competition but a very exclusive good looking, good riding naked bike backed up with 3-yr warranty.

    I don't think there is an official importer yet.

    Grandpasso

    Rode one last week,Grandpasso that is. WOW what a tool the best fuelling of any injected bike I have ever ridden. Really comfortable, good gearbox. The whole thing feels like it's on rails round the twisty bits. Good finish as far as you can tell . It will be on the top of must have list for me I think when the time comes to change. Or perhaps a Tre K ????

    Rich Have lots of FUN FUN
