Hey all,
First, I am new to this forum, so hi. I live in the Philly area and have been riding for about 15 years. I love going to track days and used to be a MSF instructor. Right now I have a CBR1KRR that is too uncomfortable to be my main bike, and I've always lusted after a Tuono so.....

Second, I am going to look at an '07 tonight, looks to be in good shape:

Are there any dealbreaker things I should look for? You can point me towards a buying guide thread too, if there is one. I plan on this being my occasional commuter, twisties and track day bike.

Cheers, and thanks!

It looks great but it does have a service light on dash? Which you can clear out. Make sure it has two keys ,other than that it should be a great bike .If you don't buy his I have mine forsale here on forum and my friend next town over has his for sale also but we are in ga both are 08 . I have a 2010 also that I think im keeping for now .I love these bikes I have had 6 now ?? You cant go wrong, Good luck and welcome to the aprilia family

Check the usual issues like electric connectors. Rear brake.
Looks good from internet distance, and has Akras already. Price looks good as well.:cool:

Don't be surprised if the back brake doesn't work. There is extended commentary here about that.

They have rear brakes?

banjo8,

So what was the result? Good bike, good deal? Did you buy it?
