    New owner of a 2017 1100RR

    Hello all,

    It's been several months I'm reading this great forum and I've taken some time to register and present myself!

    As the title suggests, I'm the owner of a brand new Tuono 1100RR, which is, surprisingly, my 1st bike... But what a bike !

    Well, actually it's my 2nd, as I started riding last august on a 900cc shiver, but as I often drive on highways, the lack of protection was painful. So, long story short, I swapped it with a Tuono... Even the dealer was surprised... But I sat once on it, and it was over, I needed one... It felt so light compared to the shiver!

    I love this bike (6000km so far), even if with my lack of experience, I'm still afraid of opening the throttle wide open, and going beyond 9krpm... Some might think it's a waste to have such a bike, but I still can appreciate the lightness, the sound of the engine, the handling and the wind protection (lol for the last one... But better than the shiv).

    I've made some slight modifications on it:
    - adding the AMP, with great logging capabilities, but awfully developped android app
    - adding a usb socket, very usefull, seeing the battery drain of the amp app...
    - adding a small saddle bag, to carry the lock, and some minor stuff
    - adding a puig windscreen

    Next step is to take the beast on a track to get a safer and better experience ! (i've already driven on track a lot with cars, but never with a bike)

    Cheers!

    Considering the bike redlines at 10,000 rpm, you’re not doing too badly on that front.... welcome and good luck.

    That's one hell of a 1st (2nd?) bike. Congratulations.
    40 odd powered two wheelers over 40 odd years. Currently in the garage are a 2016 Tuono V1100RR and a '79 Honda CB550F

    That is nothing to be ashamed of. The Tuono is one of the hardest bikes to use full throttle because stuff happens really fast when you do.

    Nice Remy,

    I have had mine since Saturday, I've not got past 9k either and I've had bikes for most of my life. Having said that i have never had a modern sport bike or anything with TC or ABS even.

    What do you think to the Puig Screen? My last bike was a FZS 1 Faser and the wind protection was much better the the Tuono

    Thanks all for the warm welcome
    Regarding the puig screen, I think that it "gave" me 15 to 20km per hour with the same comfort. I can now drive 130kmh instead of 110 with the same level of comfort, meaning it's OK - for me. Hope that helps
