What's up with everyone and V4s? Do they make more power, narrower down the middle, or both?

Thats probably where its at... you know how much I hate the scientific crap about riding buuuuutt... for one thing a V4 will be narrower... for another the power delivery MUST be smoother based on the firing order... which means the gyroscopics of the internal rotating mass must be less than an I4...

BUT HOW THE FUCK WOULD I KNOW??? THEY WON'T SELL ME ONE!!!!

Honda has a V4 motor also and people have been waiting for it to be in a SS bike forever also.

That configuration is proven to be easy to ride. Look at the magazine tests and while the ZX-10 and BMW make more power, 9 out of 10 test riders will put their best lap times down on the RSV4.

Great mid-range, still has the top end punch and the power delivery is so smooth and manageable. According to Chris Ulrich, "it can find grip where the others can't".

Yes, it is narrower, which makes the bike more aerodynamic (the main reason the RSV4 has been the fastest bike in WSBK is because of the aerodynamics). You get the low/mid-range of a V-Twin with the top end rush of an I-4...with the power being very useable. The V4 configuration provides more mechanical grip.

Re: Abyssmal 2013 Jap bike updates

What about the Ninja 300? It's nothing compared to our sport bikes, but I think it's about to shake things up. EFI and bit larger displacement than the CBR250R, beginner/economy bikes are cool again.

Re: Abyssmal 2013 Jap bike updates

What a fail so far as updates for all the Jap 1000s, and 600s for that matter. At least the 636 got released. Looks the part.

If that is the case it is weird that CC's would determine coolness.

When I buy a bike the intended use is what drives my selection.
Sadly he's partially right. I hear new riders say all the time I'm too big for a 600. Someone told me I weigh to much for a 600 or 750 or maybe spend half a season riding on a 600 them move to a 1K in a few months. At least in my area I see it happening often. I agree with some earlier post. Find your bike buy it, love it, make anything you want it to be, make it yours I have ridden other bikes and I still have my 09 at the top of the heap.

Evertime I see a math word problem it looks like this:
If I have 10 ice cubes and you have 11 apples. How many pancakes will fit on the roof?

Used 2011 low mile one with akrapovic full system going for 12k, can't beat that. Thing must be pushing close to 200hp easy.
I must've have missed this. Showa BPF, new bodywork, and six(?) spoke wheels do not qualify. That bike is old as well.

I researched your Honda MotoGP comment and the 2014 is being made for CRT bikes. Homogilation(sp), I guess?

So basically in MGP, there will be two types of bikes, if you'd say, Prototype and Satellite Teams, and more of a "spec" bike.

If they do that, regardless, they'd win, but would the high cost justify the purchase?

GSX-R will have ABS in a few years. Our beloved EU politicians decided that every bike over 125cc must have ABS 2016-> + new Euro 4 emission bs.
