This question has been bugging me for a while. In MC reviews I always see HP and torque specs mentioned, often pointing out that V engines are "torquey", while i-4 get more HP at their peaks. I have a vague understanding of what torque is about, i.e. lower gears have more of it, and higher gears have less, due to the different ratios/distance from the source of power (engine) and where that power is applied (tire on the pavement). I have not ridden anything other than my Bandit 600 (i-4) and briefly Rebel 250, so I wonder in what ways one feels the "torqueiness" of V-twin bike. What is it about the V-twins/quads that gives them better torque specs? :dunno: Any gearheads out there?
