Great scoop and story, but help out here. What does Yossef mean about twins kicking four's asses in sweepers and that with a four, a spin out is always imminent? Is that because of a four's higher revs where a two gets torque at lower revs? If I knew this stuff and could write, maybe I could get a job like his.

Well, Israel competes as a European team in th World Cup and enters the Eurovision Song Contest every year. I'd say he's at least honorary Eurotrash

I had a guy in a VW Jetta - yes, a VW jetta - flex his revs on me at the lights the other day. Honestly, the cheek! I din't know what to do except laugh. No doubt he's now nursing his ego with a performance parts catalog.

I know if I have to ask the price I can't afford it, but does anybody know how much these sell for?

Hi coop



Theory says that the long intervals between power pulses on a twin let the tire "recover" and gain back traction while at the adhesion limit.

The higher rotational inertia of the crankshaft of a twin also helps to tame the power delivery.

In layman's terms, it's easier for a knuckle dragger like me to stay in one piece with a twin than with a four because of it's more progressive power delivery. Takes more talent than most of us have (not to mention nerve) to utilize the full potential of one of those super-hot 4's. It's also easier to go fast in general because twins tend to have more torque, and a wider powerband, making gearing choice less of an issue, again, a skill (or in my case, lack thereof) thing.



Sweeeeeet bike. I don't know that it's worth 2-1/2 times what I paid for my Mille, but maybe if I get a paper route after work and sell a kidney...... For now, it's PC wallpaper.
