I feel like a ricer voting for the inlines, but for some reason I just like the sound.

I think I prefer the sound of a twin at idle, but at WOT inline is so much more menacing....


Never heard a tripple... dont those things sound like a tractor?

Hi Vash-

WOT? As in Way Out There or something like that? Couldn't place the acronym...but it is still morningtime and I haven't had my coffee yet.

I'm emailing you a pot of columbian roast as we speak.

Im a i4 fan all the way as far as bike pref, and love the sound at high rpm, but theres something about the sound of a twin that just sounds mean, especially coming out of a sportbike, the off-cadence rumble quote by blue jay hits it on the head. A naked flat black duc with full system pipe would be my ultimate......2nd bike hahaha!

Hi Vash-

Wide Open Throttle...as I slap my forehead with my palm! Juan Valdez does pick the richest, most aromatic coffee bean, so maybe that will help with my concentration!

My next scoot will be another inline-four, but I'm looking forward to the day I can roll a v-twin out of the garage.

Where you going to find one? Zuki dumped theirs, honda's dropping theirs. A duc? To expensive. KTM was coming out with a bad ass twin but put that on hold to build their race quad. One of the big 4 need to come out with another twin.

I wanted the RC51 but sitting next to the RR it was too dated. There was way more trick parts on the RR compared to the RC, and they wanted $500 more for it. That was a simple choice...

Saw the new titanium/black RC51 next to a blue/yellow 1kRR yesterday, both looked sweet, but I liked the RC a little better.
