I like it and I don't like it...



I like the looks (Ok, go ahead and flame me!) and I like the idea...



Unlike the TT600, no claims to dominance in the class are forthcoming - they don't exist in this class...



But damn, the TT600 is already down on power, and now it's gonna lose 11 more?! Won't that put it at like 75 hp or so? There's better be some SERIOUS gains in the midrange for that kind of loss - but there usually isn't when a bike is "retuned" which we all know really means DE-tuned.

The likelyhood is that the "retuning" of the engine will not result in ONE extra ft-lb. of torque - it'll just result in the torque peak being moved 500 rpm lower. What it really means is that there will be less hp hit high in the rev range, and the torque hit will be the same but will occurr at a lower rpm. This is only speculation, but that's what apparently ALWAYS happens when they "retune" a sport-model for "standard" duty, and it pisses me off.
