    Another heelo from another newby

    Hello everyone, I'm Chris and live in Leicestershire. Yesterday was eventful for me, I had my Honda firestorm stolen and recovered yesterday. It is in ok condition but I can't be bothered with it now since someone has had there filthy hands on it.

    I have been offered a 1st gen tuono for very good money. It has the oz wheels, ohlins shock, brembo calipers, a fancy clutch master cylinder, plenty of carbon parts. Only downside is a small amount of damage from a small off but it is easily repairable and doesn't affect the bike any.

    I have done a little bit of reading on here about the bikes but I just wanted someone to point out the issues I am likely to have with this bike and anything that maybe different to any other bike ie is there a certain way to start it, check the oil ect. I havnt had an aprilia before so new territory for me.

    Any advice is more than welcome. Once again, hello!

    Hi Chris, It's Geoff996 from the vtr forum in Hinckley. You'll notice a big difference to the vtr, the tuono your after sounds like a ''R'' or factory model, all depends on the price depends on how good a deal it is. The fairings seem difficult to get at a good price most things are readily available. Make sure it's got a good battery and no funny noises when you press the starter.
