Default Re: Well it didn't take long. kpaul's short rebuttal

"Why 800cc V-4s? (schizuki and pdad the ever clueless ones asked this question) Goto motogp.com and find the answer."



What influence does MotoGP engine configuration have on streetbikes?



"The first evidence that V-4 are going to dominate superbike comes from THE APRILIA V4 RACE MACHINE ENGINE – A CLOSER LOOK"



No, kpaul, that is not evidence that V-4's are going to dominate Superbike racing. That is evidence that Aprilia is building a V-4.



You continue to cite things that have not happened yet as evidence of your tiresome predictions. You are cementing your reputation as the Great Motorcycle-prediction Premature-ejaculator.

Safest thing for Boeing to do. Have him design things that aren't used at all. Sort of like when my daughter was 4 and I used to let her "help" me by making mud pies.

Well, the facts and data are that when you end you article with "For those of us who aren't fascinated with debating the maintenance of obsolete V-Twin valves, read more..." you are obviously trying to troll.

He should run for office. He's dumb as a fence post and is constantly accusing others of acting like himself.

Default Re: One Racer's Opinion Regarding The Future Of AMA Superbike

I can't figure out why you guys think KP is wrong on this.... Ultimately, the v-4 800 cc motor will produce more torque and equal power to any inline motor of the same cc size. Yamaha proved this 22 years ago when they introduced the V-Max. The 85-86 version of the bike made 145hp at the crank with old technology and carbs. Now imagine Honda producing a VFR for Superbike racing. If the 800 GP motor produces some 230-250hp, then why couldn't they produce a "dumbed-down" version for Superbike and the VFR? Honda would have a $12,000, 180hp, V-4 street bike ready for the '09 race season. Hate to say it but KP hit this one out of the park. BTW- the Aprilia V-4 has been in development for 3-4 years and so has the KTM superbike and Aprilia will be ready to race before the KTM. V-twin racing will only have Ducati to fall back on. How long will they hold on to the ideology that "Twins are what we race". Even Italians know when it's time to move forward. In the mean time, KTM will only be selling streetbikes in the V-Twin format- I don't think that they have the funds for a WSB project and they surely don't have enough power coming from the V motor......
