Well put, Solly. It's nice to be able to have low end grunt out of corners and still be in higher gears than I would on the RR.

I once saw someone also decribe the V-twin difference simply as being perfectly comfy crusing around 4000rpm in 6th gear. Obviously, there is much more to it but it's true. You just twist and go. I-4's must be in the upper rev band to get enjoyment out of them imo.

My Honda may have good power from 6500 rpm up but I have to be in optimal gear to use it. It's about useable torque in just about any gear. The liter in-lines make similar torque numbers but they may still need to be in the more useable gears too.

The I-4 high rpm rush is fantastic but like stated, I feel this power delivery is much better suited(and safer)when exploited on the track. The twin can be equally enjoyable on the track or the street.
