What about the 2004 Tuono gyus?
Does anyone know anything about it?
Any performance, styling or just color changes?
I'm about getting a new one and I'd like to know if is it worthy waiting for the new model to appear...

I love that red anyway...

The EICMA show opens for journos tomorrow, so new colors and bikes will show up on web sites tomorrow.

I hear from my dealer that the 04 Tuono will be unchanged mechanically (ie: don't expect the new motor or frame as the new Mille). As to what colors will be available, I guess you will have to wait until the dealer meeting this month.

personally i think the tuono should steer away from the mille, there is a new class of bike out there and the tuono is king!

rather than just being a naked mille with high bars i think the tuono should follow its own path, where that path goes who knows but i am sure it will be awesome!

yeah sure, but use the tail on the new mille!!!

thats all i want

i wonder how hard it would be to retrofit, hmmmmm maybe a bit of hacking on the subframe and some seat modification

Just go to the Aprilia web site--plenty of pictures. Not as good looking as the 2003's. Those wheels---OMG.
