The specs are out of this world, and the styling has me sporting a semi-stiffy. The $17k price tag, though, has me lamenting my chronic lack of fundicular fortitude.
Oh well, hopefully this bike will serve as an inspiration for the Japanese OEMs, since they seem to be the only ones who build bikes for us lowly plebians. By the way, who is Ono? And why was this bike dedicated to her?
The model in the test is a limited production handbuilt bike with top components, hence the high price. Dunno why Yossef didn't mention that in 2003, Aprilia is releasing a MUCH LESS expensive mass production Tuono based on the standard Mille.
Yeah, Fay Mayers in Denver has one of the special Falco Streetfighters. Pretty cool stuff -- lots of chrome. My wife really like it until she noticed no passenger pegs. So when we win the lottery we will have a Falco Streetfighter and a Futura in the garage.
I love it. Too bad it's going to be such a rare piece. I think it's interesting that Aprilia acquired Laverda and shortly thereafter release a streetfighter that takes design cues directly form the old marque.
