It looks like they have made a lot of improvements to the bike.
I wish they put the power figures out I would like to see how they compare.
I do have a question. Why do they use a singe carb to fuel both cylinders? Wouldn't it be more efficient to use two?

It seems to be that they, well about all of the compaines keep making the bore and stroke larger and larger, but they are not doing anything more to feed them.

Maybe it's their way to keep the speed freaks from crankin' up mean speed on the cruisers........I used to be a speed freak on my old GXSR 750.......Then I realized all the scenery that I was missing....:laughing ....while riding in 3 digits of MPH......:crackup

Ya like that?:laughing......I figure it was the closest thing I had to describe this wonderful antarctic weather we are having. Heatwave?....the only heatwave that I know of is the ones from the furnace and the fireplace. At this point, I'd rather have the snow.

All in fun VIXX....all in fun....hell, if it were in the 60's here I'd be riding like crazy in a tshirt and jeans.....:crackup
