    Mille & Futura - what do they have in common?

    I have seen an old futura at a bargain price and was thinking about buying it - mainly for backup spares for my RSV Mille of the same year, but do they actually share many (if any!) components?
    It might make a good winter project, or even a very cheap track bike, but I'm undecided - if I can use the parts it might clinch the deal...

    Main frame is the same apart from lugs welded on for centre stand.

    front brake calipers are same.

    Engine is the same as early rsv, but has differant

    stator,
    flywheel.
    gearbox drum is other way around, ie if fitted to rsv or tuono it would be GP shift pattern.
    Temp sensors are differant

    Everything else is different.

    Not a good choice for a parts bike. More different than alike.
