Now you know I can't let that go. :mrgreen: The 1400 makes 3 more horsepower and about 18 lbs-ft more torque than the B12, yet isn't any faster in the quarter, possibly due to a weight penalty. I'd say slightly stouter cousin rather than a big brother.The closest I've come is my GSX 1400 (like a big brother to the Bandit)
... not with the stock can (which says something about twins and triples, which often sound great even stock). Acceleration is still strong above 80. 120 is no problem. It rolls up to above 130 before it starts to tail off toward 145. I've outgrown that speed range, though. I'd be surprised if I ever do it on public roads again....does the B1250 give you a goofy grin when you whack open the throttle? If you're already going 80 mph when you twist the throttle, do you get that happy/terrified sense of sitting on a missile? At 120, does the bike feel like it'll keep accelerating, or can you feel the power flattening out?
:shock: I'm buying a new motorcycleThe emotional aspect is a bit like doing dope. The first time you sit on a bike, you get a monster grin and feel like you just had sex with every Playboy centerfold from the last 12 months.
