(All figures manufacturer-claimed, because I couldn't find 2006/2007 S2R dyno runs)



Buell XB9SX:



Displacement: 984cc

Power: 92 HP

Torque: 95 Nm



Ducati Monster S2R:



Displacement: 992cc

Power: 95 HP

Torque: 94 Nm



So, Ducati does a "really good job", and Buells are underpowered?

"You're being funny right?"



Yes. It's an endangered form of humor known as "irony."

I'm not sure what the significance of revving to 9,000 rpm is. Could the experts (Sean, Seru, etc) tell me why that's a good thing?

No offense to those guys. I think the folks that have and ride Buells could tel you as well. gbrummett check out his and nweaver was highly critical of the limited power rpm range.

I was more worried about the bike than I was about myself.

It's the delivery of the power and torque that's the issue. See posts by nweaver and gbrummett They can articulate the problem

Default significance of wider powerband

More area under the HP and Torque curve...
