Most Powerful EVER?????

I am awaiting a volley of correction/abuse, but I thought the BMW K1300R was 173bhp, or is that not counted as a super naked? I am struggling to keep up with all the sub classifications.

Anyway, looks cool and sound awesome in the video, although its got some way to go to sound better than the outgoing Tuonos I hear around me every day. Does seem a little small though.

This Tuono would struggle in my books to even be classified as a Naked... it's got a fairing & a screen (like the F800S)... more plastic than the K1300R. Nice sounding bike tho' :o)

Good point about RSV4R being to tiny for big blokes and this being a great alternative....could become a classic this one...like the KTM SMT....

Most Powerful Naked????

Isn't the BMW K1300R rated at 175bhp and is a naked version of the K1300S?

Seems to me like Aprillia didn't check their facts........maybe the second most powerful naked doesn't quite have the same ring to it!

I assume that the term 'super nakeds' must apply to the naked derivative of a 'super bike'.

Therefore more powerful naked bikes like the K1300R and B-King (181bhp) must be classified under some other title. How about 'hyper naked' ?

funny....most powerfull naked.

Pitty, MCN should have known better.

By saying best power to weight ratio? or something?

But clearly not the most powerfull naked.

Try not to make such silly mistakes MCN
