I agree

The loping rythm of a V-twin is much more easy on the senses over long distances. Inline 4s can be very buzzy and don't most of them need balance shafts too?

My current stable of cars, trucks and motorcycles includes:

45 degree V twin

90 degree V twin

inline 4

inline 6

V-8

And yes there is nothing as creamy as an inline 6. It's a shame that Mercedes and Lexus have both dropped them in favor of V-6s. Mostly likely becuase v -6s can be produced on a V-8 production line and they are easier to package.

Re: I agree

Did you have a Dodge Dart with a slant six?

I was sad to see Lexus dropping the I-6. The new GS has a V.

Maybe they'll make it a rigid as well.



The standard Tuono suspension was not my cup o' tea. Very "boingy." technically speaking.
