So going from 20hp to 100hp is pretty mind-blowing, adding another 80hp to the mix? Pretty sick right? That 45ft-lbs of torque is pretty game-changing, eh?
Now imagine a 190hp modern literbike with the same weight. Keep in mind, liter twins like a big Ducati are around the 100ft-lbs of torque range.
That is all.
I opened her up just once to see what I would be dealing with, and saw the face of God!
I have been on liter sport bikes, big torque cruisers...but nothing compares to the thrust these damn things hit you with. If you are going to grab the throttle, just make sure you have a whole lot of empty road ahead of you...feels like God placed his boot on the tail end of the bike and shoved you forward - really, really hard!
