    Now that....as they say....is a whole different can of worms....

    having the fastest bike...and being able to ride it fast are three different things...

    Hey all just thought (yes it hurts) my RSVR is ferrari red so that must be the fastest, unless someone has of course a canary yellow which will obviously fly

    Let's say this........I still have to learn to not wind the throttle wide open on exits of turns as I used to do with my "stock" Aprilia........she goes sideways asap if you think she is "stock". "Highsider" will be your middle name........

    Besides.......the feeling of going WOT and passing my friend on his 2006 R1 is just the thing you guys won't get as long as you are normal aspirated.........

    Good for you ............but without the power you don't have a chance on a R1 or gixxer-like bike....that's it. This is the main reason Aprilia riders put thousends of $$ in their bike on EVO6,filters,cams,bigbore etc etc......and still it comes to the point when the inline4's have more power, that the way it is. A lap on a circuit is more than power, it also includes skills of the rider, but a WOT race on a straight road is just power......nothing else. Then if the riders are different in the twisties so be it, I still have the power to accelerate away from gixxers whenever I like.......

    rs3 mille: If you read my post carefully you should have noticed the argument of a lap on a circuit "A lap on a circuit is more than power, it also includes skills of the rider" but the next thing I wrote was but a WOT race on a straight road is just power......nothing else".

    You seem to agree with me on that so what is the problem, even though you think it takes a zx14 or a busa to kill the mille.....

    And the 30hp diff with the 999F07 compared to the japs......look it up. The main reason Ducati wants 1200cc is that the level of performance out of the 999 engine is so high that the costs of rebuilding them is taking too much money. The v-twin engines in the current series have almost no regulations on tuning compared to the inline fours. That is the reason the Ducatis can still be competetive, not a magic v-twin powergrunt that is 30hp less......

    mate i think i need to apologize .read it the wrong way..i know about the ducatis 30,000 engine mods to be competetive and rebuild everytime they race. they also wanted the change as the road goin 999 is not competetive as a gsxr for the road so they didn't sell many thats there main reason for 1200cc so they can mass produce a road bike that can stay with the japs without the expense . please except my apology for me being blind
