    You are looking at about 6lbs saving on tubes and ~8lbs on battery, 14lbs or 6.2kg and it can be applied to T700 too it is not hard to seal rims and replace battery.

    Damn you aprilia I'm gonna want one of these. Looks like an Italian tenere 700. Hopefully the price is about the same.

    Today, after my 1200cc, a two-cylinder below 200Kg seems a miracle to me.
    Anyway I think the Tuareg should weight some kilos less... maybe 4 or 5... But I will be happy to be surprised!

    Not likely. The RS version is a little over $11K, so the Tuareg is likely to be in that price range. Not a lot more expensive than a T7, but it won't start under $10K.

    Wow that still looks very barebones and prototypey still.

    Yes, it sure looks like an early prototype ride, especially with the "Erector set" front frame and that headlight/windshield shroud.

    I think they will release the bike this autumn and it will be for sale winter/spring 2022.

    The engine is already in use in two models that are for sale in the US, so it already has an EPA compliant version. They released both RS and Tuono in the US pretty much at the same time they became available in Europe. Unless they have production capacity issues, there is no reason for it to take an extra year to reach our market.

    If it has a different exhaust or intake it would need new EPA cert.. same with DOT light/location compliance. IIRC they don't have to run 9000mi durability test if engine didn't change and if they use DOT blinkers from road model they don't have to look for supplier.

    Good thing they now have EPA labs in EU so it won't take shipping to US though the situation with the bug may complicate things.

    If this thing's anything like the old ETV1000 (without the shitty electrics), I'm in. Unless the Norden comes out first :)

    Yeah I figured they would have a finished bike at this point? Maybe theses are really just older "leaked" pics?

    Maybe one day we can actually see what was inside that plant box? Sounds like maybe some painted foam & clay in retrospect looking at the progress of this bike if it's current. Maybe that's why the box and plants was used as it was all fluff back then?

    Looking forward to the final product and how they clean up all that bolt on exhaust hot mess.
