    I've used mine once on the Estoril track so far, unfortunately I only got one photo of it

    Here's mine from a day at Cadwell last season. It's a 2000 RSV/Tuono hybrid rather than a genuine Tuono though. Built it from spare parts I had lying around the garage:



    It now looks like this following some winter fettling:



    It's had a gen 2 radial front end, Tuono Racing carbon nose fairing and belly pan and an 03 Tuono rear end. I'll be back at Cadwell Park on 16th March if anyone fancies it?

    Shame I cant see the pics mate ( work computer). I added a 52 plate Mille R to use as a track bike instead of the T but thinking of doing a conversion myself as I`m too old to fold. Any problems encountered?

    How do these bikes hold up against modern sports bikes, out on the track.

    I tracked my gen 2 a few times and it was awesome on the track, will dig some pics out and pop them up, got some great ones from an extremely wet day at rockingham with a massive rooster tail coming up of the rear tyre. Not had the v4 on track yet but am very very tempted.
