Besides, by 2020 we might be buying the Curtis Zeuss. Check it out. INCREDIBLE power and torque numbers. Gonna make our Valks look like scooters.
You're right of course - a bike is more than performance numbers. There also comes a point where power becomes a bit superfluous anyway - as you would know from your Hayabusa. Having said that, the Valkyrie's performance numbers are very tidy indeed, more than enough for this old bloke anyway. Like you, I'm finding myself musing that I might just have found my perfect bike. That's a pretty nice feelingBut in all honesty my 1300cc Hayabusa laughed at the output of the 1800cc Valkyrie however I am not even slightly interested in another 'busa. The Valkyrie to me is a complete package that just works in so many ways...It also looks stupid enough to really appeal to me which is a huge bonus
