Hey guys,
Currently riding a fz09,great bike,but looking to upgrade,
considering a FZ10,but concerned about poor gas mileage and range,
also read US version is not 160hp,more like 133hp that can be fixed with a warranty voiding aftermarket flash also felt the seat was a issue when i rode tested the bike,too hard....These things at roughly
$1000 canadian to fix plus the canadian purchase price of $15 800 make the bike more money than the aprilla Tuono v4 1100rr....top rated bike and close to the price of a S1000R BMW...also a top bike.
Not interested in a KTM or a KAWI.......very little interest in a gsxs1000.
Leaning heavily toward Tuono...but hate to jump ship on Yamaha...
Any input?
Thanks.

Really can't tell you which on to get as it's the bike you will have to live with. If you're really undecided between the Tuono and the FZ10 , then maybe you can try test riding them back to back and see which one you really feel better on.

It's your dime. Buy what fits you and your riding style.

Like everyone else said, it's really up to you. IMO they all do look nice, have good power, but the FZ-10 really outshines them in terms of aesthetics and standing out. But that's just my opinion and I'm probably being biased. Take em' all for test rides and see what feels better to you and what's more feasible. Determine what kind of riding you do primarily and see what the power delivery is like on all of them, etc.

Agreed with all above - it's up to you - all have their own pros and cons.
S100R is an Awesome bike, dealer support expensive and I don't like proprietary stuff.

Personally I love Aplrilia. If you don't need a dealer nearby (or if you have one), great choice.

FZ-10, you get to maintain your yamaha Love.
