But you don't. Hmmmmmm
Yes, as i said it does have a lot of torque. Just seems way too slow for my on top end. But, thats just me. I am sure you will like it if you only do one up riding.

Excellent choice! I love mine. Other than my tard, it's the most fun street bike I've ridden. Where did you buy it and what color did you get?

EDIT: LOL just saw the pics. Nice. That blue next to it sure looks sexy.

Triple is better all around anyways. Is it just the R model that comes with the supercorsa or does your bike have them?
