enki, I love that bike, too. How can you not love this bike? A bit pricey though...

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers, and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls... Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked in a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can." HST

I believe the pics above are the base model. The R model has Oz forged aluminum wheels and carbon fiber all over the place, as well as Ohlins suspension. It does look like the R though!

Silly squid...specs are for kids!

I prefer 4 strokes over 2 strokes...you get 2 extra strokes!!!

the r model that i saw had gold oz wheels (they should put them on the mille r too), ohlins suspension and it had really cool seats that weren't like your typical vylin. i'm not a fabric kinda guy, so i couldn't idea it and i wouldn't want to get it wet, but it looked cool as hell.

it did have some carbon fiber, but i don't know how much more carbon fiber it had, since i never saw the standard model in person. but the r model was REALLY nice looking.

Really nice looking, and also a WILD ride (according to the reviews anyway). Boy I'd like to demo that bad boy! Can't seem to keep its nose down...not for the novice...for sure.

if it's as good as the falco, they have a definite winner.

The new Tuono 2006 is a little bit ugly at the front.
The back is beauty. I must ride the bike to love it.
