I'll have to plead a little ingnorance here but how much would you have to spend to get the 600RR to keep up with the Buell?

Not true. The crankcases, crank, connecting rods, camshafts (even the location of the cams) on the XBRR are completely new. AND there are not fifty examples in existance.

The XBRR is not a modified engine. It is a completely NEW engine. Cases, crank, rods, location of the camshaft... You can not modify an existing production bike to bring it to this spec. And there are not fifty of them.

I quote Steve Anderson, former Cycle mag. Editor and now working for Buell. OK more like paraphrase: If rulebook says "unlimited engine modifications", which it does, what stops a person or a company from melting down the existing engine and starting over? That is a modification. Hello?
