truth is after looking at airfuel's recent dyno posting, you wouldn't gain anything. i know dyno's are different, but i'm making more power than that on my 750. and when i was reading his printout, it's amazing how much more power the f41000 has with ~80cc more. 120hp to 165hp is a big fat leap! wonder what a dyno of the 1100 will look like? although i don't think we'll EVER see that chart.
I think it would be a good idea though. The 910 might make the older 750 feel more like a current 750 with more torque, a really nice compromise. The 1000cc bikes are just animals, although I admit I have not ridden a 1000cc MV yet.
Knowing what I know about myself, I'm pretty sure I could go much faster on something like a 750 with a 910 engine than on a 1000, at least for the first few days (given that I had both bikes to ride).
This would really be a great project, although I doubt 910 engines are plentiful...
boooo. well, you are kicked off the thread for getting a good subject going and then spoiling it.
now, as achrul and i were saying....i think that you would get bored of the 910 motor in the f4 if you are used to the power delivery and visceral scream of the 750 engine. and i think my motor may have more peak torque too. maybe not, but i'll have to check the dyno sheet again. maybe it would "feel" more friendly and twin like...maybe like a triple, but you would still be getting left on the straights. the f4 motors are tuned for more top end power. this of course is not making light of the brute motor, but there is a reason they made the motor have different charateristics for the 2 bikes. i enjoyed the torque and low-end to mid power of my 955i daytona, but i was getting walked by my cousins R6 on long open highways. that stunk. and myself, i love hearing high rpms. it's what a sportbike represents to me. f1 motors on 2 wheels. a person buying a brute would never find themselves in that type of situation or contest (only races with suped up muscle cars). i know they find their ways on the track, but that's another story.
i do like experiments though, and despite john's let down...i say for someone to do it and post back.
Are any of you bothered/worried about the mileage you rack up on your bikes?
The reason I ask is because there is a part of me that thinks these bikes(as with most)sell better with low mileage but there is a part of me that doesn't care, I just want to keep it and ride it and that's that.
