Unveiled in 2001 at the Bologna Motor Show, the Tuono (Italian for “thunder“) was introduced as a naked sibling to the impressive RSV Mille. Everyone knows the Tuono Factory now – it’s a constant winner of standard bike comparisons – but the precedent for a top-level Tuono was introduced to the world via a very limited-production (we’ve heard estimated between 200 and 220) called the Tuono R Limited or the Tuono Racing.

The stock Tuono was impressive in its own way, but the only-for-2003 Tuono Racing took it to the next level with high-end components including OZ wheels, Brembo radial calipers, and Ohlins suspension (forks, steering damper, and shocks).

All of the bodywork (ignoring the tank and seat cowl) was carbon fiber.

According to this review on Motorcyclist, just 50 made it to the United States.

This example is VIN: ZD4RPC0554S000476. The seller purchased this motorcycle 2 years ago from us here at Iconic!

The odometer shows 10,811 miles. The seller has put 1,000 miles on this example. The seller is letting go of this example due to lack of time to ride.

The Tuono Racing was offered with a full race kit – this bike includes the belly pan.

The seller changed the oil, and repaired the a previous back brake issue.

Per the seller, this bike makes “approximately 25 horsepower over stock thanks to 57mm throttle bodies (stock was 52mm), larger Siemens 4-port fuel injectors (stock was Denso 2-port), custom one-off fuel injector harness for the Siemens injectors, and a custom “Italian flashed ECU made to order based on the bike’s specifications.”

It also features a full Aprilia Racing by Akrapovic exhaust.

Gold forged OZ wheels.

Ohlins suspension set up for a 220lb rider with steering damper.

Rizoma mirrors.

Rizoma brake and clutch reservoir covers.

Adjustable rear sets.

Zero Gravity tinted windscreen, also pictured: Venture headlight guard.

Creative Concepts gas cap.

Black billet turn signals and gold levers.

In total, this bike has $7,000 of upgrades on top of the original purchase price. No stock parts are included.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Dunlop Q3+ tires that have aged out.
