Cant find it on line, but, those bikes are 1187ccs with between 120 and 130 bhp and 80 ft.lbs of torque ! Id rather do one of those than some R1 anyday !

But then again, I likes my Tuono -

2ohno, all those cc's torque and power has one undesireable side effect. Heat. The new Buell has it bad. They don't call em "Hot Bikes" for nothing.

Yeah, but, not passing youself on the road and having some soul is a trade off Im willing to make ! Im used to it, my knees have alot of heat put on them every time I take my Guzzi out , summer = bad winter = good !

But really, I havent read that any testers have an issue with the new Moto Mornins puking off excessive heat -
