I've never actually owned one but have rode a few hard and put them up wet. The RC51 is an awesome bike and should be respected as a liter bike. Mojo is right. The torque of the twin can be so smooth that you can rip out of a corner like nobodies business. It will fall short on the top end but so does a Ducati and how cool are they?
The RC-51 is a rack. Not like boobs rack, like torture rack. It is designed to go fast on a track, and thats about it! Not great for everyday riding, or long trips, but a monster on the tarmac. Get that baby out on the track, Rae'sGuy!
