its gonna have more torque, but the 750 is a pretty mean machine itself. I dont think youll really have a problem. Just dont go whackin the throttle open in first or second, or youll be on your quick.

If you can handle the 750, and handle yourself on the 750, you'll be fine with the RC51.

RC51 are cool and like others have said lots of torque, but after 15 years of riding Ducati superbike twins, RC51,s dont do anything for me, but the 750 is prolly faster, so u should be ok

I would'nt be worried about the power.
The weight is going to take some getthing used to though.
It's not a very light weight razor sharp bike like you're used to.
RC51's are built like tanks.
That extra weight makes them feel very stable and planted in the turns though.

Definetly slower in a straight line against a modern 750.

Untill you get used to it, Dont go around grabbing hand fulls of throttle.

same thing for abruptly closing the throttle - V-twin engine braking is strong.
