    Really want one, 2019 onwards with semi active Ohlins. Second hand around 13K, a lot cheaper than a Ducati V4 Streetfighter.

    Just need to pay some debt off then maybe winter when they're even cheaper.

    That looks a cracking deal, if they have only one it'll not be still available by the time I will be able to purchase. I don't want to part ex my blade but will be adding to the fleet.

    I only mentioned the other day to @Selmer50mark that a V4 Tuono is highly likely to be my next bike when the SP goes back after 2 more years. There's no way I'm going to pay the balloon payment of 10,500 on a 3 year old bike when I could pick one of these up for similar money nearer the time! The incoming R1 will be my sports bike and the V4 will be a great addition to the garage. I like the fact it has a decent sized fairing and still looks like a sports bike but they are supposed to be really comfortable! :)

    Its cheaper than Duc, but it is also a lot more uglier than Duc.

    Don't think the Ducati is £6000 prettier than the Aprilia though. (£13,995 v £19,995)

    True. But again, you can buy Superduke 1290R 2017 for 10k. Don't think Aprillia worth 4k difference either.

    That's a bargain also.

    All different bikes, a couple of big gruff v-twins or a fairly well built jet smooth V4.

    Not letting my Aprilia bias colour my view of course. ;)

    A tuono factory 1100 is quite better than a 1290 SDR in quite all ways

    There is a letter in this weeks MCN - the "Star Letter" by Tim Wild - about the new Ducati Streetfighter.

    He says "....it looks like an air-con unit with a wheel at each end..." :D

    Had to laugh at that.

    Better off with a Speed Triple RS or a Tuono ?

    Yes I saw that letter sounded like that chap quite bitter about anyone would spend that on a bike saying it was just for ceo.......probably one that's got a 3k GSXR or older sportsbike complete with matching fleece and hates electronics as has all the control he needs in his right hand....buy/ ride what you like but never slate something you have never had a go on or indeed can't afford

    Not really, no. Superduke looks much sexier out of the box.

    I suppose it's subjective, you either like something that looks finished or you like the scaffolding look. :D

    Do either the Superduke or Tuono run hot ?

    (Polite way of asking whether they roast the old nuts :D when slow moving in summer traffic )
