Well the big plusses of the tenere are the extremely long and light Cardan, and the for modern times long stroke. The bore stroke ratio is 0.811 compared to 0.734 for the TDM engine, and the extremely oversquare GS Twin with its highrevvin' 0.723.

But as allways, the proof is in the pudding, not in dry numbers, allthough the numbers pack a virtual punch, hopefully they've been able to put the extreem grunty lowdown thrusth ofthe MT-01 into this rotated V-twin :-)
