    A new Tuono convert (From '07 RSV1000R to '05 Tuono Factory)

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to say hello.
    A week ago I bought an '05 Tuono Factory and have never been so impressed!
    Fan-fucking-tastic machine!

    And the "old" RSV:

    I migrated from things like TLR100R to a Tuono because of the riding position ... but so nearly opted for a rsvr when mr insurance handed over the wonga

    VERY interested to hear your opinion on the merits and draw backs of the same thing in a different package

    Yep!
    I love(d) my RSV but after a 3 hour ride, my neck and shoulders were in knots and hands were tired. The amazing thing to me is how light and flickable the Tuono feels. I'm convinced it is because of the much lighter wheels - it responds to merely a thought.
    I rode the RSV yesterday and it felt like a heavy gyroscope.

    Funny thing about insurance, RSV was around $420 a year, Tuono is $160 for the same coverage!!!
