Question About: Aprilia Pegaso 650ie Tuscany Tibet Raid.

Hi there,

I've been searching for information about this bike over here at Adveture Rider, but (surprisingly) can't seem to find any info about it.
I'm planning on buying one as soon as I sell my Triumph SpeedTriple, which should be quite soon.


I've already made a testrun, and I found the bike to be:
  • very comfortable
  • have a unique appearance
  • drive very smooth (likely due to the 5-valve engine)
  • very nice and quiet sound
  • easily adjustable rear suspension
  • a nice 25 liters / 6.6 gallon tank
  • good wind protection
  • very nice ground clearance
  • great curve handling
  • have a "hear me go for it" sound when you go full throttle
  • great ergonomics (I'm 1.85m / 73 inch)







Now I'm hoping to get some responds from people who've riden or even owned one.
  • I'd like to hear the good AND the minor or even bad points
  • All the model history (tuscany tibet raid)
  • What to keep an eye out for
  • What to expect
  • After market advice
  • etc.etc.etc ...
And ofcourse as many pics as possible!!!

(Oh and the one I've got my eye on is a model 2004 with some 24.000km / 15.000 miles on it.)

But thanks for the suggestion mate

I'm really looking for this specific model; the Tuscany Tibet Raid.

As far as I can recall, there is nothing about the Tuscany Tibet Raid that is unique from the regular Pegaso 650i.e. of the same era other than the paint/sticker scheme, Metzeler Sahara tires, and metal top box. I believe that it also came with the remote rear shock preload adjuster that was an option on the regular Pegaso. Mechanically, it is the same bike.

Therefor, with the differences mentioned in the OP, it differs quite a bit (beside the mecanical part indeed).

It is the ALLroad version of an ONroad bike.
And thats the main reason for this specific thread.
And in this thread I'm looking to meet TTR owners, and share TTR information and pics.
