Anybody want to venture a guess as to what kind of power this engine will be able to make in race trim?


I think in it's current config it must be "tuned for torque"... in any case the dyno plot shows a really smooth torque curve, over 75 ft lbs from 4500 rpm up past 10,000

no doubt you could pull a lot more peak HP out of it at the cost of messing up the low and mid range.

I notice they also made some nice upgrades to some of the other models... new bottem ends on the 1200cc air cooled motors, increased steering lock and 47mm forks on the Ulysses
