    Rode sports bikes for years, but me old neck can't take anymore hammer, so I've had to plump for something more upright. The Tuono was the 1st and only option. Had a Fartstorm some years back, so riding a twin wasn't too hard to get back into.

    Loving the stomping power. Got twin akkys on it, had the mapping switched and I've put the smaller front sprocket on it. On the dyno it kicks out a genuine 129 horses off the back wheel, so its cheesey grins and wheelies all day long

    Got a slight issue with the fuel light though. Is it normal for it to come on after only about 70 miles and then only need 11.5 litres to fill it again?

    Welcome Skin to the Zone. Very nice Aprilia mate..i can definately understand the neck pain from sport riding positions. Has the Tuono sitting position reduced the pain considerably. May have to migrate to this soon myself
