The 2013 690 Duke on page 18 of the same issue may be down on power from the FZ but, it's lighter & would probably make better time on the twisties here in hill country. $1,000 more but, it gets 57 mpg. with the cycleworld crew flogging it much harder than I would.
Did you see how they were riding it?
70-90mph bouncing off the limiter all the time. You can see that in the 1000ps video. MCN somewhat too.
