if we're talking straight line speed, the I-4 should win all the time. If you're riding a twin, you have to figure out how to be faster by going slower. You have to really work on your corners (exits especially). A twin will roll on the power more smoothly than an I-4. A lot of people like them (twins) for the street because they fell more powerful down low (stops, street speeds, corners, etc.). An RC51 rider told me that when he would gun it with some I-4's, he'd pull away so quick that once the I-4's got into their powerband, he was already GONE!
Most people will agree that a twin will make the mediocre (sp) rider faster (because you can stay in "lower" rpms than the I-4's in corners) on the track.
hope that kind of helps
