I have to say ........this is the most invigorating bike I have EVER riden!
178.5HP at the rear tire on a dyno at 5000' elevation!
Stock it was 156HP.
K&N filter
aftermarket Power commander
Ti pipe/Header
Simply incredible.
My friend also has an ignition advancer that he hasn't installe d yet but should be good for another Pony or 2!!
He upped the gearing and is now at 83mph in 1st!!!
I was in 3rd accelerating at 105 and was only around the 9.5k - 10k mark!!!!
(on a closed course ..........of course!!!)
Wow! :) :D

And I prefer this to all those phat diesels. Power to weight ratio this baby eats them all hands down.

If we are talking Beautiful (SEXY) then the Agusta's pipes have to be what gets my motor running. The greaseburner would be fun.

A couple of weekends ago I was up at the Rock Store (So.Cal) and saw Jay Leno on his
Y2K bike. This thing was awesome! Turbine powered and was told ~300hp. It sounded like a rocket car when it took off. It didn't look like much of a canyon racer but the coolness factor was off the scale! :)

Leno takes a lot of cool stuff up there, he lives near there in the Hollywood hills. He has a little red single seater carbon fiber car with a Yamaha R1 engine.
