I've been considering it too. I had an 08 one and it was badass. They had a demo at Houston Superbikes, but I think it's gone now. Shame I didn't have a chance to ride it. I will definitely want to ride one before throwing down that much cash. Hopefully they release a 2013 model near the end of the year. Prices on leftover Aprilias and demos are usually pretty cheap. May be able to get one for 11-12k. At least I hope. I picked up my new 08 Tuono in 09 for 9k vs 13k for the 09 model.

Tuono would be a great bike if the tank rage wasn't so poor.

I don't know about their other bikes, but my fat pig GS loves to wheelie, it doesn't take much.
