Actually, the Tuono puts down more power and torque to the wheel. I think the S1000R is able to pull on the Tuono because of the gearing.

That is my though too. The S1000R is so fast because of its short gearing (which is not a bad think, considering its a naked bike) but I'm surprised that it pulls harder than the V4 1100.

Bike sold, I have the following....
Open to sensible offers, bank transfer, Paypal gift or cash only please.
All plus postage when I know what it is.
It's all used so may show signs of such.
Will be eBaying in a week or so with same BINs if no takers here. Would rather avoid PayPal & eBay fees though. Gotta fund the new bits for the XR somehow  :440:

Previous Rs came with Diablo Rossos which are more $$ and better than BT. I guess cost cutting ....

I had Pirrelli's on my R1 and hated them, will never ride on Diablo's again. 

I much preferred the OEM fitment bridgestones on the S1000R, and while I didn't go for the same tires when I replaced them this season, I did stick with Bridgestone (went with the T31's, so far they do what it says on the tin)

will be a 2nd bike. I love the look and character.. I tested a 2015 and yes the S1000R has it beat on power and torque but that V4 sound ...  :020:

Unless its fitted incorrectly ,the air box hasnt been put back together as it should and/or  disturbed any plumbing going to/from the air box...Its unlikely but there are sufficiently talented fools that can muck up the most simplest of things up... :169:


So, you may have been that sufficiently talented person then....? :001:

Glad its sorted anyway.. :046:

Opinions are like a$$holes, as much as I respect Ari, I'll stick with the engineers recommendations.

Agreed, I tend to trust the people who specced the materials and built the thing in the first place .
