Nice shots...


BUT best motorcycle motor in the world ?!!? Might be pushing it there in just the V-Twin world. It certinly isnt the best when yo start talking about sport bikes too. All IMO, but Harleys are beautiful in their own rights, but are far to expensive for what they are.

Here I was expecting a MotoGP engine or the new 800cc they've come out with.

Meh, 45-twins are nice, but I prefer my V-twin. :D

I like the second one.

Nice pics. But I also prefer my 90° v-twin.

I have a Honda VTR1000F "Firestorm" (known as the Superhawk in the U.S, but that name sucks IMO).

The 800cc reference I assume is about the new engine rules for MotoGP next year. They all have to be 800cc.

Daytona or Speed Triple? Either way, I drool over both.

I ride a Zuki SV650s that will be getting the streetfighter treatment when I get back to the States next year. I'd like to add a dual sport to my lineup and purchase a track-only bike as well.

And I was referring to the new 800cc engines for MotoGP. Nothing like a bike that puts out 200+ bhp and weighs 140-155kg.

Best production bike engine in my opinion is the hayabusa motor. Its tunability is insane!

Love the trumpet!

But how can that motor be so good when it could never even hope to hold compression what with the holes in it? :lol:
