Don't think the V twin would suit you Lee.

I'd go for the best of both worlds and fit a big bang R1. Sounds great and has about the same power you have now or slightly more... and did I mention, they sound great?

They did, but it was about 7 years ago now and I've forgotten. boxedin

I do recollect that it wasn't too outlandish, though - the reason I went for the Aprilia in the end wasn't cost, but mainly my concerns over the size and financial stability of Moto Morini. Their dealership network wasn't exactly extensive, either; I don't know what they're like now, but at the time they had only two dealers in the UK... North Leicester Motorcycles (which wasn't far from where I was living at the time) and one down in Dorset somewhere, I think. To be fair, they've had a long history and they're still here 7 years after my enquiry (through the worst recession since WWII), but they did go into some form of 'light' receivership not too long ago, I think?
Correct, the company has gone through some changes in the past few years, but is now in new hands and from what I've heard it's doing fine.

Some images of the engine for those interested in how it looks like...smile

just to had I had a morini corsaro veloce. Lightly tweaked. Made only 10bhp than a big bang r1(obviously they're the rubbish end of the r1 spectrum) but made it 5000rpm lower and more torque everywhere.

At 8000rpm it was making over 40bhp more smile

Have a listen....

[quote=Turn7]Having spent many years working for a Ducati.dealer,I really can't.see the clutch putting up with a BEC situation.




In your opinion, would this clutch improve things ?

Possibly,I'm not sure . It's the fact that it's a dry setup that makes it weaker I believe .
