    Back in the game with a 2009 Tuono Factory (Almost)

    My dad and I had a Mille R almost 20 years ago (yikes!). Have always wanted to get another bike with that motor. Opportunity knocked, made a plan to sell my '04 Thruxton and actually got the wife's approval beforehand which is very rare! Picked this up from dopaytoplay with 4,800 original miles on it! Need to get the Factory carbon bits back on it and Ohlins front end to get it back to official "Factory" status, So if anyone has any come ups, let me know. But other than that, am pretty pumped to have the Factory w/ the classic Aprilia lion tank scheme in the garage!

    Nice. It's because of this bike that I met Jay and ended up with his other '08 Tuono Factory.
    Enjoy and good luck with your search to re-Factory-ize it!

    Damn, DoPayToPlay is single handedly outfitting the bay area with Tuono's!!

    Anyhow, welcome! This is an awesome forum, everyone here is super cool except JMardy - that guy is a fuckin creep and you should definitely stay far far away from him! Gorgeous fam you got there man!

    PS: I have some stock cans (black Aprilia Racing) that I would be willing to let go of if you want to spruce that badboy up.
    Current: '07 Aprilia Tuono Factory, '07 BMW R1200GS
    Past: '14 Aprilia Tuono V4, '17 KTM RC390, '07 KTM Superduke 990, '07 Husqvarna SM610

    Thanks! I think I am going to keep my eyes peeled for some Arrow or Akro slip ons.

    Congrats - nice photos

    What happened to the original carbon fiber parts?

    The tough one to find will be the carbon fiber belly pan. They are very rare and if found will likely set you back quite a few $'s.

    Found a belly pan on ebay and bit the bullet. Have to pick up parts like that whenever you see 'em. Thankfully got it for a little less than listed!

    I need to cool down the wallet for a little bit! But PM me with a price when you get a chance.
