If you don't know the difference in feel between an inline and a v-twin then I dunno what to tell ya. I haven't seen any comparos between the two bikes other than old ones. This Z is a completely different package than the old Z. "Touring mode" is not really what this bike was built for. My comment about keeping the VFR pretty much sums it up. This is a comfortable street bike. Not a tourer.

I haven't ridden the Tuono. But for those who know the bike they can chime in with telling us about its service intervals, parts, ergos, feel, etc. I rode a Mille RSV and it's about as uncomfortable a bike as I've ever ridden.

I am, by far, no expert but I bet those things matter to most regular shmoes when it comes to making a bike purchase. Or then again, they just buy cause the bike looks cool. Maybe that's why the Z hasn't caught on (?)
