PS...the fuel trimmer (a pot on the dash for the EFI module) really is neccessary for these bikes if you plan on riding in traffic and the like. Per the article you referenced, the reason the bottom end was so soft on the testbike, is that when Bimota upped the size of the throttle bodies to uncork the motor, they also had to lean the crap out of the bottom end of the fuel map to pass emissions and noise regs in this country. The result was a soft and balky bottom end response. Adding the fuel trimmer lets you fatten up and clean up bottom and mid-range response. If you find a bike without one, contact Bob Smith a Motopoint to pick one up ( under $200, I think).
Really adds a lot to rideability.
Some folks just have more money than good sense.
