It needs some kind of engine crippling mode like the one Mopar uses on their Hemis (MDS) where it runs on 2 cylinders til you hit WOT or something.

Or, I just need to not ride them.
And "they" say the ZZR1400 (ZX14) is even more comfortable.
Decisions!


2 cylinder ECO mode would be fun, [does the math], ok, we got 670cc parralel twin
(LOL, that's a NC700 right there), with around 90hp. That should be enough for
cruising up to 120mph+ on that bike, and could save a lot of fuel in low revs.

Was a bit chilly today, so:


Only in that new spiffy white they're using for the F800GT

(The ~158 hp is just a bonus.)

I find myself really lusting after the Ducati 848 Evo. Like, ready to buy one next spring if the chance arises. What should I know about them?

The solidus between Standard and UJM means "and/or" doesn't it? There's a Honda below it.

lol Not getting in a hurry at triple digits? I understand how you feel, though. I have a Blackbird and those triple digits "sneak" up on me fast.

Don't ya just love stupid fast bikes?
