How about a compromise? A pushrod inline 4 would be the ultimate, especially if it had 1934-style Harley exposed valve springs and flying oil spray.

well the Duc is a superior motor and so is probly a Merlin V12. Problem is neither one will fit inside a 52 in. wheelbase. Kudos once more to EB for making a silken purse out of a saucier... Kudos my children, kudos for all... is it nearly ****tail hour or is it just me?



matter of fact we did a duc 900SS vs. XB9R back in like `02 on MO and then we all liked the XB9S better, so...



does this GT1000 use same old frame? rook rike to me...

Default Engine Differences

He's probably speaking of chassis differences. Also, the DS1000 is a fair improvement over the old 900ss motor. The off-idle stumble and low-rpm surging from the Buell's FI make it a headache around town. Once you get past the motor, the XB's chassis and playful character shines through.

Enjoy the exclusive club, kids, I hear MO is dropping the $11.94 soon and letting in the riff-raff.
