....from the sound of things here, if you guys were any older, you might be reaching back for drum shoe brakes, suicide shifters and firestone tires.....

lets do this instead...."out with the old....in with the new"

joking, of course....just felt it needs saying
Thanks from Nitrouz and cavlino

Nice review, thanks for posting.

It's always interesting that everyone on any new bike says that it turns in so much quicker than the old one. I wonder how much of that is due to the fact its running on new rubber that still has the ideal profile as its not as though the geometry has radically changed. I know that when I put new tyres on my bike it feels like the telepathic steering has returned .. Just a thought
Thanks from Nitrouz

Thanks for the write-up. Haven't put any road miles on yet, so good to hear.

I agree with you on the raw factor, which is part of the reason I kept the 1299 for now. I will likely be a bit quicker around the track on the V4, for the most part, but I may miss wrestling the bear every now and again..
Thanks from Nitrouz

Let's see a 40 to 100 roll on vs a 1299 - my money is on the twin. Anything new is always "much faster"

I'm sure they will do 0 to 180 you can just time the 40 to 100 on the video.
