They don't really compare, they are so different.What do you think of Tuono as compared to your Panigale?
I forgot your Panigale was a twin. Just wondering if I'd be happy with Tuono after my V4S. Thanks for the writeup!They don't really compare, they are so different.
The Panigale might as well be a race bike. It's like 200hp and 375lbs wet. The bike literally has the best parts money can buy on it from top to bottom. There is probably over $65k into that bike. It is way overkill as a street bike, it's uncomfortable, hot and so high strung it's hard to ride around on. The power of the Duc is pretty violent, I've never ridden a VTwin that revs so quickly and so high but still has insane low-end torque. I think the power is that way because it is the R with all the lightened internals in the motor. It turns heads at the coffee shop On the track the bike is insane.
The Tuono is a really fun bike to ride on the street. It is way more comfortable around town, but like any naked bike not the best on the highway because of the wind blast. It feels very small but has a lot of power. Not the power the duc has, but it is much more rideable on the street. The V4 kinda feels more like a cross plane R1 the way it makes power. I haven't had the Tuono on the track yet, but I think it should do pretty well.
The electronics on both bikes are really good. Both have up/down paddles that you can use to adjust the traction control while riding. The Tuono even has launch control. Again I haven't had the Tuono on the track yet so I haven't been able to push the traction control real hard.
For me the Duc will spend most of it's life in my living room and on the race track and not much time on the street (probably just to cars and coffee). The Tuono will be ridden to work 3 days a week when the weather is nice and I'll probably do some fun rides in the canyons on weekends too.
I am not a cruiser guy and even if I was , my lower back would not allow me to ride that bike for more than a few miles. But I have to say, that is a fine looking bike
Just last Sunday, my 2015 SD set a personal speed record
Very much so.That's hauling the mail with no fairing....
>>>is the ZH2 speed limited?<<<<
Very much so.
The throttle closes to 60 % past 10,000 rpm.
Gearing is also lower than it could be.
Note the RPM vs MPH on the You Tube Video at the bottom.
Will try to get the Video of the KTM up in a week or two.
Nobody has been able to crack the more encrypted ECU.
My 2015 H 2 went from 186 to 225 RWHP with ECU flash.
The 2020 H2 SX SE can be flashed and Brock claims 260 hp
with flash, full exhaust, and air filter.
This will give me an upright sitting position.
ZH 2 run :
For it's intended purpose the 2020 is fine with me.
Agreed.... It's great to see Triumph investing in their already very good Speed Twin platform..... picking up a slightly used discounted one could be a bargain..... decisions decisions....For it's intended purpose the 2020 is fine with me.
I did put stiffer springs in the front since
the original 50 mm sag was a bit much.
The rear Ohlins from a Thruxton ( $ 600 ebay ) made the rear better. It wallowed like a water bed in the corners, before.
Keep in mind that concussions are cumulative, especially when close to each other. Also, for me he most severe symptoms did not show up until a week later and lasted for over six months. It took couple of years (if ever) to fully recover....I am having some trouble with the latest brain injury but I am thinking as best I can here and it seems like the mini bike was just right for what I want now...
...I was doing so nicely with that too...now I feel a little bit like I am goona puke just sitting here...Keep in mind that concussions are cumulative, especially when close to each other.
