    Tuono owner wannabe :)

    Hey Guys,

    I currently ride a CB1000r, but have been drooling over the Tuono Factory version for a long time, and the newly announced '17 modell just hit it out of the park for me.

    However, there are a couple concern points vs the Honda, pls. let me know Your experience:

    1. Reliability. Don't need to introduce Honda, how about the Tuono?
    2. Cost: mileage (really that horrible?), servicing?
    3. Heat: I've heard a couple owners complain about excessive heat. The CB manages that quite well, not sure about the Tuono.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dave

    A friend bought a CB1000 a few months back and rode mine. Said the power and handling was the biggest two things he couldn't get over

    When I rode his it did everything nice but lacked the excitement my aprilia has

    As for fuel economy... It's crap. Expect 31-34mpg. No heat issues and bikes been reliable in the rather low 2000 miles I've done so far
