The only way U really need more power is if U are dragracing it, or lsr, and still would be better investing in more skillz, I have several liter bikes and I here to tell U they are all freaking fasterinhell I have been riding for more than 35 years and still cant use all the power these modern bikes can provide, when U think U are a badass rider go take a trackday at say TWS (Texas World Speedway) and get spanked by several guys on 600, and then U will understand

Yup, you are wrong. It happens a lot more than you might think. The person riding the bike has alot more to do with lap times than the actual bike itself.

This can't be explained to those who don't get it. Why was my bike with 185 at the wheel not enough? Why did I add nitrous? Why am I now building a 1441? Why would I feel the need to spray my way to around 270hp at the wheel?

I get the drag racing thing. Thank you.

A litre bike on the street or even the track is a different proposition. There are only a handful of people that can ride one to the edge. I can only think of 3 MH members.

It all depends on where you put the "edge". He may just want more roll on power. Who doesn't?

hmm i guess, but wouldn't the guy on the litre bike have to just be a horrible driver, and if that's the case he wouldn't want more power, so for someone to "want more" would mean they at least know how to ride it. a litre bike even if taken the corners slow ( like i do ) could easily get back up to par with a 75hp 600cc bike comming out of the corner, that would mean the guy on the 600 would have to be just 100% epic on a bike, so the overall assumption would be it's not gonna happen.

that depends on the track. You're assuming there are long straights to just WOT through.

You make a valid point, but honestly im assuming what nearly all people that say i wan't more power do, not to mention people in general, a VERY small portion of riders actually race at a track, and most of you know it. and a typical back road in texas has curve, straight , curve curve stright, curve. that's kinda what i was basing my assumption on.

dude, U really have no clue, just go do a trackday and I will lay money there will be dozens of guys on 600,s that will leave U in the dust, they would pass U and be completely out of sight in less than 30 seconds, not trying to be disrespectfull, just saying my opinion. Go run A class at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with LSTD, and I will pay for it if I am wrong

im not arguing that at all, i simply said my assumption was on the street, as that's what MOST people do , not everyone goes to the track like they say, and as far as ME on a track bahaha, i HAVE a 600 not a litre, and i have a very low powered 600 at that.

you also assume the guy on the litre bike is a bad driver, if you put one of these guys that "ride a 600 that would leave me in the dust " then the litre bike would be better in every aspect, what if this guy is one of "those" guys?

Horribly WRONG.

I (there is a quote that I am looking for from another forum, that simplifies WHY..for the answer) but for now, on a level playing field, the good rider on a machine, will do better, than a bad (or average ) rider on a machine with greater potential. Remember, its the pilot, not the plane!
