    Tuono or Mille

    obviously, this is a biased crowd, but why did you guys go with an RSV over a mille...and a bonus follow up question, what was your rational behind getting (or not getting) a Factory or R?

    went for a mille rather than a tuono because i can't imagine sat up at 170mph or even 120 getting blown all over the place but the tuono is a awsome beast wheelie mad lots of fun, i would recommend a factory as what jap bike can you get for the money that has ohlins and radial brembos oz wheels and is immense fun LET ME TELL YOU NONE

    At the time of buying my first RSV, I also had a Gen 1 Bandit 1200 which probably still features as one of the best budget sit-up blasters, so the Tuono would have been pointless for me.
    Did test ride a new Tuono R prior to buying my Factory. Great bike but it just felt like an RSV with high flats bars, still had a pathetic steering lock etc and I didn't fancy having my head ripped off of my shoulders again like with the Bandit.

    I got the Factory because I wanted a bike that came with the toys already fitted, as if not I would have bought them anyway. All I have had to do to it is fit some decent cans and a Renegade airkit, only other bits needed are probably a different screen and a 105 spring for the rear Ohlins.
