Nice Ape. Ive been on the hunt for a nice gen2 tuono but no luck. Seems the best ones are on the other side of the country. The MV Brutale caught my eye, but i am on the fence about the reliability of MV. My friend had an F4 which spent more time being repaired than ridden. Although I heard pretty good things about the Brutale 990.

Btw: I owned a brutale 910 for a few years, wicked fast bike, but the rear hub bearing is a constant issue, and the electronic can be problematic if still running factory spu. Only problem while riding was lack of wind protection!

The RSV is a fantastic bike and yours is a beautiful example. Had i been in the market for a sport bike at this moment, it would be my first and by far the only choice. I am afraid that if I go with the RSV I will never go back to riding the R11S or the Bimota YB10.

I am looking for an upright hence a Tuono (or maybe a Brutale). I believe the 990 had the electronic and rear hub issues resolved, but a bit research would have to be done to say that with certainty.

@tirefriar - Good luck on your 990 search! There were also a few Tuono for sale in Orange County Craigslist, should check them out!

@Mitch1100 - Thanks for the clip!! Love the sound of those L series 240z! And Les Collin's engines, should make some good power! I posted few pics of mine in the Show your Cage thread: OT What is your cage?
