    Only bike at the moment that i can see that would make me sell my T would be if BMW brought out a naked with HP4 stats on it. i imagine BM will bring something out as they see the naked market growing as sales potential.

    Yep already looked it all up Damodici. The superduke 1290 as well but i just know its not going to look like the prototype they released. i dont imagine it will have the electronics of the Ape or a BM.

    Ooo nice. I was dead wrong then! Bigger fuel tank and ABS would be nice. Is that a real carbon front mudguard or fake carbon?

    Typical Aprilia though. So they equip one of their flagship models with new ABS, bigger fuel tank and a few mods and where do people find out about it? On a forum as someone took a photo of one in a dealership!

    Where is the media buzz the PR or the media relations? On holiday probably. I bet even the bike press dont know about this.

    Finest Italiano Plastico

    Fuel tank looks wider - I've never got close to 17ltrs - so If it's true it has 1.5 ltrs more capacity - with my riding - that'll only be an extra 9 miles range

    Well ive just asked a dealer to email Aprilia to see if these new 'comfier' seats fit our bikes and we'll see what comes back.

    According to the Piaggio stock system the seat for the '2014' Tuono is the same part number as mine so they must of updated it.

    Wonder if that means the Gel seats are now standard fitment or discontinued because of the new version seat (if it is in fact new)

    Im also going to check my new tank, had one of them fitted yesterday under warranty

    Its been out of stock for ages and only just been sent since the launch of the new models so the theory is its a new 2014/2013 tank (its a bonus if it is)

    I guess brim it and ride it until empty is the only other way
