RC51..................Great twin that has MUCH low & mid-range GO POWER!

R1.............Good in-line 4 that has a one-wheel-attitude!

YOUR CHOICE!

But between the 2 I prefer the RC51!

Yeah you see, even if you loose a cylinder you can still whoop on the 600s with an inline four. With a twin it's time for limp home mode

Yeah but he's talking about a Honda twin not a Ducati... we don't lose no stinkin' cylinders.
