    Gen 2 blue wheels.luv or hate em.

    What's peeps thoughts on the blue wheels,

    I've had the bike 12 months now, love it to bits, but I can't take to the blue wheels, mines a black and silver model, ( the fastest & ultimate babe magnet ) as it says in the brochure

    The blue simply doesn't go with the rest of the bike, in my opinion of course, I think the wheels look fine on other coloured models but not with mine,

    Has anyone painted theirs or got any pics laying around of different colour options on black or silver gen 2's

    My bike ( gen 2 ) is blue and came with blue wheels ( which i like ) but i also like gold wheels , so i bought another set of wheels and had them p/coated gold .
    ii have the best of both worlds so t speak . bike currently wears the gold ,uns with pilot 3,s and the blue ,uns fitted with pilot 1,s are chucked up in the garage loft .
    the blue ,uns will be re fitted when and if i ever sell the bike ( still smitten with it and cant think of owt id want instead even after 3 years of ownership )

    i,ll see if i can get a pic posted !!!!

    Quite an easy answer to this dilemma swap your body work to blue and white to match the wheels then you will have the "fastest & ultimate babe magnet" I should know!!!

    So i am off to look at a 2008 factory this friday as I am desperate to sell my street triple and get a proper bike......however it has blue wheels and i am not a fan. Which ones had blue and which ones had gold wheels¿? Hilift says his has gold as it is a gen2 model but to be honest i havent a clue so if anyone can enlighten me that would be cool.

    Excellent model guide written by Keith B here:

    Tuono Model History.(European models.)
