Hi all,

A new member from Belgium who just swapped his Speed Triple 1050 for a Tuono. I don't know yet if I made the right decision....The Speed Triple is a very, very nice bike but the Tuono is just sex on wheels. A big bore kit is the next step (1127cc).

Welkom / Bienvenue,

YES you have made the right decision.
The triple is a nice bike as well but as you put it, Aprilia's are just damn sexy twins!

beautiful, have any details on the exhaust? other then it's AKRA

looks like the big Diameter pipe, W/O cats, and the latest cans.

The dealer only told me it was a full titanium (with carbon cans) exhaust but no further details I'm afraid. They do look very nice
but are VERY loud (I didn't try the db-killers yet)

Welcome and that's a great looking bike. I always thought pictures don't do the Tuono justice. Ten times better looking in person where you can take in all the detail.

Yes I had 1050 triple too. very nice bike. Jury is still out for me but if i had a factory T I think my mind would be made up easy.

Your bike is very very nice.....

Patja see how your link pipe is a seamless piece where astronot has those things in the middle, those are catalytic converters and they discolor

You also have the new style cans w the hexagon shape

Those are expensive pipes

I live above Antwerp since a few years now (and before that close to Mechelen), and you?

I live in a small town between Tienen and Diest.Tuonoben here also present on the forum is also from Antwerp somewhere.He owns a black R.
The sound of the Akra's is perfect when you insert the db-killers.The discoloration of the cats on my bike was coused by driving it for 100km on
map1.Now on map2 the discoloration is far less.
