    IF......

    You are ever 15 stone. Around there the rear shock starts to work properly.

    Had a string of them and the two early ones with full throttle in 1st and 2nd were by far the best. Can't recall ever needing a front tyre.... destroyed rears.

    If only my knees fitted on one....
    I hear people convert to standard mono shock and solve the issue.

    Aprilia RSV twins all used a Rotax based lump which is not Italian.

    There is absolutely no comparison between the mild SV thou, faired or naked, and the RSV / Tuono. Not the same ballpark.

    You can't compare the SV with a TL either

    Just a detuned shopping version favoured by peeps who like the allure and mystique of the V2 without having to experience the equivalent of riding an angry horse

    When you actually get it to start right But you are kinda right. Comparing 10 year old Japanese reliability to German/Italian bastard truly no contest.

    No problems with mine: a Tuono and a Falco. Both of which were also lighter, and had better suspension than either the SV or TL. The Tuono also made more power.

    Of all the formats I've ridden, triples are my personal fave so I'm being objective here. Aprilia V2s were excellent. I have also ridden both SVs and preferred the smaller one (although that was tuned up :ride: )

    Something ate my post... in it I was just sayin' that contemporary SV1000 and Tuono were priced at 5000 and 12000 English dollars respectively. Gimme a break, can't stop laughing since I found that...

    Foreign review, don't look:

    Well, listen to your countryman reviewing SV1000 and at minute 2:00 bringing up the same point I just made regarding reliability comparison
