Nice to see that you guys will be testing Hondas again. All they need to do now is put that same motor in a standard style frame, with no 'retuned for torque' BS. How much does this thing cost?

Default You guys just can't stick to the topic of Motorcycles can you?

I'll I want to do is talk about motorcycles and to quote President Reagan "There you go again"



"in the race of life wants "Kerry (in)equity". "

Explain that remark if you dare but you know the great KPaul with disect and destory your argument. Bring it on!

Default You WANT it retuned for "torque"

With 150+ hp to the rear wheel, only a racer could ever hope to use the power. On the current crop of literbikes, the engines have gone beyond need, beyond want, but into the realm of obscenity. Try to use it on anything short of the autobahn or sears point and it will flip over backwards.



If you use this as a donor engine in a tourer, streetbike, etc, damn RIGHT you want it retuned for torque. 130 hp, with first gear topping out above 60, and you can outrace a ford GT or ferrari off the line.

I hate to admit it, but I was passed by a guy on a goldwing on my first track day some years ago. It was quite a sight. I didn't really think I needed to be more humble.
