“After riding a NCR M4, it is difficult to enjoy riding a motorcycle weighing 100 to 150 lbs more, regardless of the amount of horsepower it may have.”

Heh heh. Calling mscuddy.

It's pretty obvious in this day and age light costs more than hp.

Plus hp returns higher profits than light because at the Burger Barn, you can't brag about light.

Does NCR take trade ins?

Is titanium really a good choice for a motorcycle frame? Obviously its light, but its inherent stiffness makes me wonder if a serious rider wouldn't be unhappy with the lack of frame flex. Its very difficult to fabricate, machine and weld.

More show than go IMO.

I'd trade Ken's Chevy Volt for it!

Ti is lighter than equal-strength steel, but that doesn't mean a ti frame has to be stiffer than a steel one. If the bike has a higher power to weight ratio than an 1198, then it's definitely not more show than go!
