" A GSXR 1000 is bike made for a man, a TL1000R is a bike made for a man with a moustache."
This is the answer i got when i asked this very same question a year ago when i was at a dealership. I didn't know how to respond, and to this day i still don't know how to respond to that.
yes sir, that's what had me so curious. Was comparing a 1,000 cc V twin to a 1,000 cc 4 cylinder.
I have heard that V twins have a lot of torque.
I was wondering. Are the TLR and the RC-51 competitor for each other ? Since they are both V twins.
Yea, I was thinking the TLR or the RC-51 might make good 4th bikes ?
from what one of my riding buds said (since he used to own one) it was twitchy in town. did NOT like low speed low RPM. He LOVED the bike. other than, not as much top end as a inline 4 1000, but GOBS of torque!!!!!!!!!! i'm guessing you know the TLR is a V-twin... right? much thinner than any inline 4 1k. i wouldn't suggest it as a first bike for anyone. ride some other smaller bikes first and get some riding experience. THEN, maybe look at the TLR.
from my perspective, i still love the RC51 better sound-wise. but like the looks of both of em.
and... GRATS on the new purchase and awesome wife. that's another woman that's a keeper. seems like the thing for woman to do these days. i think your the 4th one I've heard do that.
