As I mentioned in another post, RC51 is on my bucket list along with ZRX1200R. Every time I am thinking the timing is right for an RC51, another cat crosses my path in this case the Aprilia. I have not ridden an RC51 yet, but the RSV is on a taller side (Im 59 and not completely flat footed while sitting on it), the clip ons are located deceptively low and the tank is wide so you are somewhat splayed out. Reminds me very much of the seating position on the Bimota SB6R.

@Irish, nice Tuono Factory. Almost every publication on every continent was gushing about this bike. Enjoy!

Thank you. It's a great bike, motor and sound (needs a pipe) You guys are bike nuts on this site, great stuff. Cant wait to actually take delivery of the MV just to feel at home here. As for the extra 2 pistons I cant really say, riding the 1299 and the ape back to back is a totally a different experience. Add the Duc v4 to the mix and I cant figure out what to ride on a Sunday, not a bad thing.
Never had a chance to ride an MV before but always could not stop staring at every one of them. Thanks again for putting up with me.
