about the V4... in motoGP where you can do (almost) whatever you want: Honda, KR, Suzuki, Ilmor GP, & Ducati all run V4's. they must be atleast "ok".

i htink its more of a technology thing that I4's are still in production bikes. I think the future will see V's again. But id think the inlines can ultimatly spin higher RPM's and make bigger HP numbers... But if the V's offer significant torque its only a matter of time till they rev higher and out do the Inlines.
What is raced in GP will ultimately trickle to production bikes, the question is how long that takes
also it says 210HP but its in super bike spec for that... i dont know what the GSXR1000 spies rode dynod at, but id guess not more then 5HP less...i wanna see a dyno in PRODUCTION form. It is a majorly promising bike at the worst and an amazing bike that will be #1 performance wise at best. But will it sell at the Dollars itll cost?

The V's produce more torque, but when you have a 160+ hp I4, couldn't you just gear down to get the pull of a V. Even on 600's. I've rode a '03 6R on the track and it was +3 in the back. That thing had some pull! The top end suffered bigtime, but you don't hit the top speed on the track anyway...usually. The front straight at Miller is like half a mile, literally. And the V's aren't the best at top end either. It sounds to me like gearing down would bring you close to the V's torque. Now I'm talking about regular production bikes. Not bikes that cost over 30-40K. Just a thought.

And I got some insider's info (unconfirmed but fairly reliable) that a BMW might be seen with this Aprilia V-4 in a couple of years aswell.

The motor is unveiled... the total unveiling may be at the milan show. The V4 may start out as a homologation special to compete in the 08 WSBK. Hopefully it will be commonplace soon after.
