Chris has been spilling some on Ferrari’s treatment of the cars it – or refuses – to journalists for reviews, and it my mild reservations about the Tuono V4R we were given to around the Valencia MotoGP look desperately over-sensitive. cars with blatantly engines, different set-up supplied depending on the tests done, Ferrari technicians circuits days in advance to sure the cars are set up perfectly.

So how did modify the Tuono for the European launch? And, more why?

Most of what Aprilia did an would do anyway, especially as willingly supplied the information, if not volunteering it. Yokes 4mm down the a selection of preload and damping (I have all the details on my site if you them). Then it gets a grey, with an accessory damper bolted on and fuzzier to see a 200/55 Pirelli Super gluing the back rim to the track.
