On a stock bike yes, but doing the soft rev mod (a free mod) will make the RC pull hard up to something like 10300 or 10500. There is actually another 3 or 4 hp to be had there. The difference really is noticeable. Anyhow, I really love my RC. I think I want an R1 next, but I won't trade my RC for it. The RC puts huge ear-to-ear grins on my face and I won't give that up til I find something else that gives me more enjoyment. It's all preference and for me the vtwin sound is intoxicating!

Those are nice bikes too. When I bought my RC, I really wanted an R1 too, but my thought was that they're not putting much into designing/updating new vtwins so I may as well get one now. On the other hand, all of the design and updating is going into the I4's so when I'm ready to buy one of those, they will just be that much better.

Just to check.
A V-Twin is like a Harley motor or a Buell. RC51's and other twins are 90deg. whith a shorter stroke right.

I had a 01 Buell X1 Lightning with a front to back V&H, Powercomander III, and a ForceWinder2 intake. I sold the bike because I road my buddies 99 R1 and got the front up a bit on accident in 3rd while getting on I45. At that point I was hooked on the I4's. Sold the Buell and got a 04 GSXR 1000 Matt Maladin ed. I love this bike but I sure do miss the sound and feel of my Buell. A Buell is the best of both worlds, you got the thump under you and a Sport bike ride. When I had the Buell I read once that when comparing a Buell and a bike like a R1 or a Gixxer it would be like comparing a P51 and a
F-18.

Pretty much correct, just not quite the difference in performance:laughing6
The best way to do it is have one of each

Lol 1 of each sounds like a good idea.
1 I4 / 1 Twin / 1 Track bike.
I have a 2 car garage so if I leave my kids bikes outside I should be able to fit a car and 3 bikes in there.

I just made the switch from a 04 R1 to an 02 R51.
I for one can say that it's an entirely different animal. The
twin of the rc gives strong linear power, though I found myself bouncing off the rev limiter initially as I wasnt used to the reduced rpm's. After an hour of riding it, I no longer had to look at the tach because the twin pulses soo strong through the bike. Even though this bike has nowhere near the power of the R1, I forsee myself getting around the track faster now due to the connection I now have with the bike. Everyone should try both engines before they knock them. Each one has it's good and bad points, though for me, the goods out weigh the bads on the twin. I'm hooked!!

Hang in there bud, I'll be on a "newer" bike by mid-summer. Waiting for a couple of "bonuses" and then I'll be on the market. I want to pay cash. Cheaper for me in the long run.

I agree, it's hard to knock those twins

clyde its been a long time now you have a duc and a r1 lol last time i talked to you, you had a busa and a rc.... Well thats just crazy...

I like the top end ruch of a inline therefor im pretty sure i would hate a twin personaly i think i would rather have a new r1 just because of the top end rush and no torque lol.... I'v heard its a r6 on steriods...But then agian im not a track junkie either im just a junkie....
