    Cool Ultimate Privateer Race Bike ?

    So...imagine turning up with this thing under your ass to a local club race...if you had the $ + cajones + skill...you'd dominate.

I always get the feeling that to ride a Tuono you have to be a real man, prepared to fight it every step of the way, where as on the Triumph you can have an off day and not be left feeling inadequate"

    It's only worth a shit if it also has the race ECU. Otherwise an R6 can outrun it.

    ehh. mmmm. yeah....But for a second, just imagine you are correct. can you imagine the continual slam over the internet how Honda was able to under perform against an R6 with an engine with 40% more capacity with top of line electronics, suspension, the lightest parts available and tuning by HRC.

    too funny

    Pay close attention to the specs “as shipped” without the “sport kit”. Not really that impressive when compared to some other manufacture’s special edition bikes available at 50% of the cost. Those specs are what pissed everyone off when the bike was released. The US market has a truly neutered version.

    it apparently gets worse in Japan - you are greeted with a "model [that] has been neutered to 68 hp at 6,000 rpm." I understand the motivation though it's all or mostly EPA related. it's all there you just need to spend another 12,000 for the kit to get the 200+ hp....what a steal for a bike that no one will race...well no one I know.

    a quick easy way to tell if the bike has been kitted and restrictors taken off is to verify the headlight is gone and a carbon duct is in its place. if its got a headlight, its choked to a max of 164hp. ECU, exhaust upgrade, duct and airbox mods, gearing kit 14k. 214hp. kits will not be shipped to usa owners due to epa restrictions. couple of them on the west coast via germany
