I don't get heavy scramblers! Too many Triumphs look to alike to me!  I'm selling the Harley to get a Husky 701 SM and it's likely that my TS will be exchanged for a  Tuono factory!  Gotta be a s/h '17 plate tho as it has the green on the paintwork, just to desirable for me to resist!
Too old to die young!

 :0461: with you on tuono, really nice ergos and a lovely comfortable seat, as opposed to the RSV4 seat was as hard as nails  :087:
Don't think my poor bum could last any more than 10 minutes on that  :192:
If I was going to buy a sports bike it would be the Tuono  :123:
Did anyone try the new Suzuki Katana? I tried it for size and its nice from a distance but close up its a bit plasticy IMO. Don't think its a patch on the original which was on a plinth next to it.

Well, it's a little far for me so most likely won't be going.   :008:

Did Triumph have the new 1200 Speed Twin there by chance?  This one seems to be calling my name.  Just sold my 2009 Bonnie SE with cast wheels so wondering what to replace it with and this one looks very appealing to me.  My big concern will probably be leg room, as it looks like they've moved the pegs back and upwards.
