Ahaha! Yeah, my thought too!
He also mentions the 1000 did not feel that much heavier, kind of defeating the purpose of wanting a smaller displacement bike.
For myself, I like the power of the 1000. I was impressed on day 1. Now, I still appreciate the power at all revs. But, over time, as odd as it may sound, I still see flaws to having instant power at all revs/gears. Who would have thought!? Being used to peaky engines (and I am now realizing I like them actually), I sort of don't like the fact that I can ride the bike without downshifting, be lazy, and still be very quick. It makes me more ... lazy at times. I actually like when I have to work for it.
That's the only 'complain' I have on the bike power, so it's a pretty weak one!
At the same time, a liter bike will have more power up top than a 600-750cc. That I like. I bet I would be looking for more powA if I switch to a smaller displacement bike. After a year, I am already getting used to the powA of mine, and want more! Time for a few mods I think.
