Maybe, but (strangely enough?) even my 100HP GS has taught a few lessons to similar bikes.
Maybe I was lucky, maybe they were (all) cases of useless riders, still the differences are not that much to compensate.
I mean if there was a huge power and ESPECIALLY handling difference between a tuono (as an example) and GS, then even that cr*ppy tuono rider would still win. Right?
That said, there has been at least one case were a scooter rider has kicked my b*tt.
(ok in traffic and acting like there was no home to go back to)
