Just thinking I'd like a R1 S last night for a go fast bike in the garage.
I'm eyeballing two motorcycles that are world's apart yet share an engine type...a 2003 SV1000S and a 999 Ducati. The Ducati is stupid cheap which scares me, yet it's the ugly duckling model that everyone hated when it came out. The style has actually grown on me a bit.
I'll be in my bunk.
You looked at charts but have you ever ridden one?
If I win the lotto
Will I be able to get Bond Girls with it?
I hope so!
Enhancing the Bond Edition theme, the new limited-edition Tiger 900 features an exciting bespoke 007TM start up screen animation and heated rider and pillion seat, crafted with unique Bond Edition branding. $20 grand though ooof.

The 250cc motor in the Janus puts out, what 17 HP? That's hardly enough to pull a chair. If you want an old fashioned thumper to pull a chair, get a Royal Enfield Bullet, twice the CC's, twice the torque (and maybe twice the HP). It'll still be slow, but, at least usable on the road.
This was a thing
So no word if it will have missile launchers?
Passenger seat eject button is a must-have for my next bike.
No I haven't. Are you implying that the flat spot doesn't exist in real life? Because many testers who have ridden the bike commented about it, that's why I sought out the dyno charts to see if they agreed with what the testers were complaining about.
I'd need to win the lotto in order to ride that. Not sure how else I'd be able to afford needing all the time in the world to get to work.
That said sweet looking rig and think it'd be a fun around town errand bike. I assume those little Janus bikes are still packing the venerable Zongshen 250cc lump?
They do have a 450 model but it costs twice as much.
Thinking she could "launch some missiles"!
I want a Vakyrie today - for one tire's worth...
Or fifteen minutes, whichever expires first...
A lot of bikes have exhaust valves to quiet them at EPA noise testing levels, I think it is roughly half of the bikes max RPM. That generally is why you'll see dips on the dyno charts.
If you plan on replacing the exhaust system then it's no big deal, but if you plan on keeping it stock then maybe a reflash of the ecu can deal with it. Some bikes they can disconnect the valve and reflash the ecu so you don't get a check engine light.
