I told the guy that bought it that it would make his 2008 CBR 1000RR feel slow. He didn't believe me at first, but texted me today telling me how his CBR felt like a 600.
It made 151 after the reflash. 136 before. Euro 3 emissions standards really choke these down. Ducati ships all Euro 3 calibrations to the US to save money by not doing another calibration for the US. That's more restrictive than the 49 state standards, and costs horsepower. BMW can afford to do a US calibration, so their bikes make more power stock.

Nothing wrong with I4s, I just happen to like twins. Power peaks at 9500.

I hear you. I love twins too - owning a Ducati and an old RC51. If you really want to feel torque - ride a flashed ZX14R. mine made over 80lbs at 4K and peaked at 118.

As far as I know the hyper bikes are the ones ABOVE the litre bikes - also called superbike - like the Hayabusa and the ZZR 1400. Hyperbikes have larger displacement and are less maneuverable than superbikes/litre bikes.

Dyno'd the SDR at 155hp&86ft/lbs........box stock.

All I've done to it thus far is adjust things. (I have upgraded my street riding gear though, I'm going to need it) Waiting on the PCV/Rotti intake to become available so by tax time that should be a bit higher.

I've said it before (maybe in this thread) but I wish they'd put some bags on it and make a supersonic sport-tourer.

Those 205 Kmh wheelies got me all excited.

They are probably easier to ride than the 150HP supersport liter bikes from 10-15 years ago.

I have mixed feelings about this, but electronic wizardry is now fully ingrained in serious sport bikes.
I would agree with this. The new bikes are better to ride.

Don't forget tires, todays higher end street tires (Pirelli Diablo SP for example) offer grip on the track and street better than supersport race tires of just a few years ago.

My Panigale's DTC and ABS actually work quite well. Still, todays bikes are so much faster, you have to have rider aides, otherwise it's going to be a short trip indeed. EBC and slipper clutches are excellent as well. And if there's a bug in the throttle, quick ECM reflash and all is well. Now the electronic aides are actually starting to work well. Nothing like the first gen BMW and MV nonsense.

But don't worry, the Duc's and Ape's still have plenty to keep things interesting. The BMW and Kawa seemed boring by comparison.

Look at all the used, for sale WERA race bikes. Just about all of them have TC and quickshifters added.

It's a good time for Superbikes for sure. And it's only going to get better. WSBK is switching to more EVO type rules next year. So everyones going to have to come out with R, RR, and SP versions for the showroom now.

Honda's rumored to have a V4 RC coming. Too bad it's $65k. Would be nicer to see the V-twin Honda back instead. Suzuki is rumored to be making a frameless V4 as well. Even a rumor that Kawa will make a new Zx10 that isn't ugly, more like the 1st Zx10r.

PS: Snowmobiles are the fastest accelerating things short of a top fuel dragster. No shifting gears either.
