'16 SDGT, et al
A guy in a Honda S200Wow, I did all the carbon power parts on my bike too, but didn't pay anywhere near that... I'm still not sure how you got to 10k unless you of course did the full exhaust, wheels, etc...
Agreed. Which is why I like twins. It's not a power issue on my bike. I've hammered it in first, dumped the clutch, rocked the throttle... Nothing happens, yet I could wheelie my other bikes. I've tried switching everything off. Nothing. I'm guessing there's a track pack conflict and the nannies are permanently engaged somehow.
He's a very good rider with impressive skills. I've been racing cars for a long time and even though I don't do basic open track days anymore, I've seen spec Miatas driven by pro drivers run down ham and egger's in corvettes etc at open practice/HPDE days. Often times the performance has way more to do with the person operating the machine than the machine itself. All things being equal, that rider on a GT and that same rider on a BMW 1KRR, is going to see substantially faster lap times on the RR. But the GT gets big props for being able to be a very versatile sporty machine despite its size and weight. That's one of the reasons I purchased it. Not knocking the GT, it is what it is and it's excellent at its intended purpose. But I've run a superbike on track and it's a night and day experience in terms of all out performance.
