I expect that at some point the displacement wars will start again. The need for speed will probably prompt another manufacturer to offer a punched out supersport to compete with Kasaki. At that point the rest will follow suit and eventually the racing associations will allow these larger displacement bikes to compete. Eventually we may see the 750cc class return.



Remember that displacement categories are completely arbitrary and if the public decides to opt for larger displacement supersports the rules will accomodate them.

I agree. "KPail" is a keeper. It may even be a worthy replacement for "Kook".

No doubt the Litrebikes will be significantly quicker and faster than the Rocket III. However, I suspect that a Hayabusa, ZX-12R, Rocket III and possibly V-Max will outperform them in top-gear roll-ons. -Sean

Ours goes to eleven. In that case, make it KPail_Kook. -Sean

Default Axiom #1

There's no replacement for displacement.

Default Re: indeed.

Its not the cops you need to worry about. I got verbally ***** slapped by one of the OEMs for openly discussing my traffic transgressions on their bike in one of my stories. Lots of, "Personally I love reading your work, but if our lawyers ever saw that story, you'd never touch another (insert anonymous OEM name here) for as long as you live".



So take that for what it's worth SA. I know our hooligan exploits are a pretty badly kept secret but you never know who's readin' and some things are best left unsaid. You know, kinda like our sexual exploits, eh big guy?



nudge, nudge, wink, wink...



(Ooops, did I say that out loud?!)

I have it on good authority that one can hypothetically achieve 145+ on I-80 between Wendover and Elko along some of those stretches where you have 20+ miles of unhindered view.



But don't quote me on it.
