V twins are a special kind of addiction. An aquired taste if you will. :icon_bigg Torque is the name of the game. If you love a lot of low end horsepower, you tend to like v-twins

Do some more research on GP bikes. They aren't all inline 4s....
The Honda RC211v is a V5 in a 3/2 V configuration and the Yamaha M1 is a Inline 4. And we should all know that Ducatti is a v twin.

Its not all about motor when you talk track and racing. Its also got alot to do with a bikes handling through corners. Ducati's are some of the sweetest handling bikes in the world. But It still comes down to the rider. Any rider can wind up those litre bikes in a straight line but when the turn comes up its the rider who has the skills that can flick the bike through and still be fast. A certain SV 650 rider from this board left me behind at the track and I was on a zx9r. She has better skills than me. See what I'm saying? There is a lot of info in the racer forum. Dont hesitate to ask questions here on MH. You will learn alot by asking questions. The only stupid question is the one that doesnt get asked.

It's about the rider and preference. There are some members on here that have some Track TL's. Many like them because they have so much torque coming out of the turns wich makes them very competitive.
