I don't have a Tuono but I have a Sargeant seat on my SV1000S and I have been very happy with it. I have done several 500+ mile days on it without the monkey butt that occured after 100 miles on the stock seat. I have never placed my arse on a more comfortable hunk of foam than the sargent seat...including my prior superhawk, bandit, and CBR954. It seems that you just live with it if the seat is ok, but now after having had the luxury of the sargeant, I would probably opt for another in the future. I rode an FJR several months ago and the seat was pretty good on that, but I still think mine feels better. Congrats on the new ride...nothing is better than a naked twin!
