If you want low RPM torque you'll need this.

133 ft/lbs from 0 to 6,400 RPM

Eek

if you really want tourqe then you need to lean towards KTM
as far as sport bike the RC8 with well over 150 brake hp in a V-twin
or as far as touring the 2014 ADventure 1190 V-twin also with 150 brake hp
and tons of tourqe.

Shut up and hold on

How long will it take you to put 100k miles on your bike?

How many miles on the bike you ride now?

Just consider it the "My favorite v-twin thread".

OK, so I'm the baby of the discussion, with only a 750cc twin in my Aprilia. It pulls well from 4K to 9K rpm, but only makes about 60 ft-lbs (92 hp, though). I changed my gearing to be more compatible with off roading, so I'm spinning 7K at 85 mph. It has a nice low hum at that speed. It is a screamer in triple digit speeds.

Aprilia does make a 1200cc twin that would be more in line with what the OP is looking for in a motor, but the touring bikes are expensive. The Dorsoduro is a bit more affordable. Personally, I would love to tour on a 1200cc supermoto with a custom seat. We don't need no stinking windshield!

I just love big torquey motors too. I was bought up on British twin cylinder iron,and we never dared to go over 4 thou.... I was always looking for a torquey modern bike,and I discovered the Honda NC 700..it was designed to be economical, but to make it so they had to keep the revs down ..Bingo,,yes one torquey motor..It requeries you to short shifted gears,and keep the revs low,red line is 6500,,I like to cruise around 80mph and at that speed you are doing about 4000,,so at moderate speeds the motor is lugging, but still will pull.I could not give a toss about how economical the bike is ..but a bike with grunt does it for me...

If it's really all about the torque, then the answer is an electric bike with a CVT.
But I'm guessing that the OOP has her mind set on an internal combustion engine.

When it comes to a torque monster a Yamaha MT-01 has to be right up there, certainly put a grin on my face when I rode one. Can you get them in the US?

Boss Hoss with a big block. You can close this thread now, although I wouldn't want to own one, ugly, heavy, straight line handling. I'd rather ride a 70's TS50

Absolutely! Handles, goes and stops very very well and does it in a different, individual kind of way. Truly one of a kind. Bit too different for the USA of course even though it was designed for it.

^ I want one of those! Why do we get nothing but lame cruisers on this side of the pond? I love that engine, but I'm not too big of fan of the bikes it's available in here.
