Some people love to do ecu work and are trying to get more of something out of it and that is great. I just want a smooth engine (for a twin). Will I get that out of the box?
I guess it depends on what you mean by "regular street rpms".
Mine runs just fine at 3k and is barely passable at 2-2.5K. To be honest though, it is hard to run around at 3k. The bike just begs to be run fast. If you are looking for something that likes to chug along at 1.5k the Multi isn't the right bike.
