    Looks great. I've owned both an RSVR Factory and a Tunono Factory in the past. Great bikes.

    Went for a test this week and it was awesome ! Bike rode brilliantly box was smooth front brake awesome, rear brake not so much ( seems to be a common theme on these ) Went for a 40 mile ride including the road I was knocked off on. Was all good.

    Going to take it to Poole bike night next Tuesday :D

    Yeah the rear brake not working - they all do that sir :D

    It's to do with the position of the master cylinder, get some AP rearsets to relocate it and that will solve the problem for good.

    Had my Tuono for 10 years and the back brake only worked once a year (on mot days )

    When I park my Gen 1 up on its paddock stands, I hang a 5kg gym weight on the rear brake lever until I next ride the thing, helps keep the back brake working. :D

    Yup. I did this on both of mine and it solved it.
