From a dead start and on the throttle runs the 675 Should have killed in acceleration. The 675 would have prolly lost in the top end area.

If you haven't ridden a "newer 4cl sport bike" then they would have kicked YOUR arse.

It is not the bike, but rather the rider, who determines the outcome of such events... and I would never condone any sort of "testing" on the street.

In the rain would be cool--Throw some gravel into the mix as well--Shit, just go to the farm where they filmed the final scene in Biker Boyz........

The key is to get them to race from a 2nd gear roll on-Less skill involved, just gotta not bang the damn thing off the rev limiter.

Find some corners and find out. Higher corner speed and better low to mid range grunt.....

What do you think?. Not everything is about top end speed.

Democracy, a process that requires everyone to ***** and moan or they are not doing their part.

675 power kicks in very early (compared to 4 cylinders). When I road a R6 it felt like I was driving a turbo. The power was very sluggish until I hit the 8k range.

And who names their account "pizzahut4life?" I mean they have good pizza. I won't deny that, but there are far superior pizzerias!
