This is fabulous news. Its almost matching the 1/4 mile acceleration of a 20 year old bike of the same cc. Unfortunately it does not even try to match the wide power band, smooth vibes or the slick gearbox. It goes around the corners much better though.

It makes a good layout, nice and narrow, but modifications and upgrades are expensive (FOUR cams, not much room to change the intake side of things, etc). That's one practical reason why there aren't many V4s

That, it's expensive at purchase and not a race replica. I think the latter has a lot to do with it. Most older people (correctly) interested in an Interceptor would make another purchase choice these days.
