Depending on who you are, and how you look at it. Those are two good reasons TO call it a Wethead!

Cool2 Dyno curves ...

I had a 2010 R1200GS and this curve was barely noticeable when riding. There was a bit of a dip around 5k rpm, but it wasn't bad or so. And in normal riding, the behavior below 5k was much more important for me. I'm not certain how much you'll actually feel the dips on the new one. Time will tell.
I did some Photoshop ...

Both curves adjusted to diferent scales looks something like this

Thumbs down Democracy?

Wethead is Ok as such but why the totaltarian dogmatic decision by a few or for that one?
It's a German bike but it's not 1939, whatever you do don't mention the war!!!!
Put it to a vote with a deadline.
Moderating is not forcing your views upon others, or is it?
Rise up to fight the oppressor (s)!!

The hell - someone do more to your cherrios this morning than piss in them?

T'were anything up for a vote I'd go for something referencing the spork. Or combine them like Wasser spork or would that be spork-wasser?

Id wanted to make a reference to the fork tailed devil (Lockheed P-38) but couldn't quite get fork nosed devil to come out in German.

Don't believe me?
Check the GSpot FAQ question 2.11 with answer for yourself.

Now that looks awesome! Thanks for taking the effort to create the chart. It looks even more impressive on the graph than it did in a table. By the way, as long as you are photoshopping, can you fix the axis labels which Web Bike World screwed up?
