    New factory Tuono owner in Cali

    Hi guys, great forum, I wanted to introduce myself. I just bought a new 2017 factory Tuono here in the Bay area. If you're looking for a great deal, call Robert at Evolution Motorcycles in San Jose. The deal was too good to pass up! Some riding history- I'm 32 yrs old, been riding on the street for 16. Started on a SV650, upgraded to a couple ZX6r, FJR1300, BMW S1000rr, then a Ducati Hypermotard. I figure I'm somewhere around 65,000 fun filled miles on 2 wheels. Rode all over the East coast and then I spent 8 years in Utah. Dabbled a bit with trackdays along the way as well.
    Anyways, for you Cali guys, my dealer says they can't install an exhaust due to emissions. Is this common or are there shops that will do it? I'm considering doing a slip on exhaust and ECU myself as an option too. I'm going to keep my eyes open for some Black Friday deals... Need to do all the necessary mods too- fender eliminator, rearsets, levers, mirrors, and frame sliders. That's it for now, cheers.
    One pic from the showroom floor, more coming soon.

    MSRP out the door... So basically $15,200 for the bike, then tax, title, registration, setup.
