So why would the bike be smoother with a smaller engine? You obviously seem to know so I await your reply.

Salut g-bear!



Get your hide on any R6, twist the throttle, hit a few miles of twisty tarmac, brake hard a few times.



You'll understand that anything better than thoses 99-02 R6 "IS" something out of the ordinary.



Looks even better than what I considered the best looking machine out there.



Ciao!

The shorter duration higher lift cams and FI should allow more top end with much improved midrange hp and response. Also the exhausts now contains a catalyzer which limits hp. It should gain 3 or 4 hp once the can is replace.

Default Beautiful Glad to see no racer boy graphics. The best buy in motorcycles (600s) gets

... better. Love to see the way Kawasaki and Yamaha are bringing out bikes with no graphic decals. If the bike is well designed it will look good with out the gimics and stripes.

It's just the natural evolution of the UJM ... now we have the UJS.

OK, why do the UK sites (including yamaha-motor.co.uk) say the thing makes 123 HP @ 13000 with ram air? Does that mean they're guessing/exaggerating the effect of ram air at speed, and the number in the article is the actual crank HP figure?

Damn, hate to see you suffer. Tell ya what - I'll share your suffering. Just give me the money (or the Daytona - I'd kill myself with the Gixxer)

They can't produce it on a static dyno. They have to blast air at it to get the extra hp. Neither 120 nor 123 will be available at the wheels.

I think the throttle by wire may be farther away then you think. I believe that the little advantage gained would be over shadowed by the cost.
