less valve area = more intake velocity, lighter crank/rods/pistons, blahblahblah

Well, picking the F800R up even as we speak.

Now, if somebody'd he'p me out with the Triumph, I could get busy finding the RT.

Sorry, Gryph, not my bike, but my buddy in Seattle used to own one. It might be around here somewhere?

Hey - nobody ever posts a bike here that I would NOT like to ride.... It's fun looking at the choices.

Fuel consumption isn't.

When I'm dreaming of my next tour it's a GS1200A, but when I'm walking down the hochstrasse it varies between a Griso, an S1000RR or a Fireblade or, when I'm in a nostalgic mood - a Suzi GS1100 :-) and when I'm in a silly mood it's a Honda Zoomer or an Harley MT350,

Too many bikes not owned by me! Damn this unemployment! Anyone got a job for an experienced IT SM?

Only if you're loping around at 1/8th throttle, which is not why liter bikes were created.

FYI: got 43mpg on the last tank on the FZ6. Keep the needle above 7k and let it fly....
