heard that this bike quite a speed demon as well..

 

so speedy that it leaves everyone behind at 270kmh... some maybe 280kmh...

 

ouch its a vtwin.. and they arent really that fast...

 

but it weighs in like an elephant for a 996cc bike... if u get what i mean...

its time for a change!

New attraction coming soon!

But in terms of pick-up,

i think it's very hard to beat it....

hmmmzz why do u think so?? i have seen tlr's launch before.. and they aren't really that quick either.. neither is the top speed...

 

its really a prototype that went wrong... first planned for superbikes series but ended out a flop...

 

the tl1000r is an artifact... u find in museums for bikes...

put an average rider on one, and give it a go on the track or road.. and put that same rider on a r1, 929, 954, gixxer1, zx9, rc51... and he will go so much quicker.. not forgetting the gixxer750, r6, zx6rr, gixxer6... heheheheh

 

its time to move on... it was cool in 98 but.. thats like 5years ago man! :bounce:

its time for a change!

New attraction coming soon!

Cannot comment much on TLR since I did not ride it before.

I rode TLS before, and was surprise by how capable a big bore V-twin is.

Push the bike hard will be rewarding.

 

I knew that TLR smooth out the brute power of TLS. As usual, V-Twin accelerate real fast without realising it is fast, because that how it is built.

 

Got a fren riding TLR, he comment that the handling is less nimble as usual sportbike. But given hard corner, he will pull away first out of the corner because of higher torque at lower rev.

 

If the price is right, I will get one.

Hahaha... I have to agree with you, there. TL-R is a TL-S put in a straightjacket. Suzuki modded it heavily to get rid of TL-S's vicious character. For example, that dodgy rotary damper was removed, threw out the trellis frame for a beefed up beam spar type.

 

But the damage had already been done when TL-S went mental right after it was launched. So as a consequence, its successor the TL-R never really sold that well.

 

But still, you do get that awesome stomp of a big-bore V-twin plus Japanese build quality, reliability and dependability. In that sense, one can say it's a better option than Italian V-twins like Ducatis (if only the TL-S is as lithe and sexy).

somebody mentioning the comparison between a vtwin of the same cc size as a inline and being better on pick up??

 

ok... what i have seen with my own eyes... Desmond Lance on the 996sps at pg... behind a gsxr1000k2 on the front straight trying to test the drive of the k2... by slowing down to follow the gsxr1000k2 at the last corner... n try to match the k2 on the straight for pick up...

 

he did manage to keep up with the gixxer... but not gain on it... and my friend on his k2... was just starting out and his first day on track... pg..

 

vtwins are tot to be torquey... but they arent... they just dont rev high thats all... ;)

its time for a change!

I got a video clip of GSXR1000K chasing a determine 99' R1.

Did anyone saw it...I dunno how to put it here leh!!

 

so what happened?? the r1 was faster? or the gixxer? stock on stock the gixxer will always be faster than the r1... on straights.. out of the turns.. but otherwise the 954 and 02 r1 will be easier to ride fast...

 

anyway i aint sure about Desmonds surname, but to those here who dont know who he is... i think he holds a certain track record on PG at some time for fastest national rider or something... anyhow, he is/was a racer... and his sps is quite done up... ;)

its time for a change!

G1 chasing after 99 R1 with Akrapovic...They challenge on roll on at 6 gear...and oso twice trying top speed from 2 or third gear I think...

 

G1 just got no chance to overtake that Akrapovic R1. Coolz siah!!

hahahahah eh send me the pic can??? this joke i gotta see...

 

gsxr1000k1 cannot win a r1 with akrapovic end can on 6th gear roll ons and top speed?? hahahahah quick u joking or wat??

I was amazed by the clips too. The 99 R1 gear ratio is different with 2000.

Dun be surprise.

 

I know you are riding G1...relax lah..I ridden my fren G1 oso...strong pulling bike...

I dunno how to put the clip here leh...or else I will put it in...Nice Clip :smile:

 

both r great machine....

this bike looks fierce. i was taken aback by the appearance. esp by the twin pipes.

 

Here's an interesting fact to note : all V-twins need two exhausts. It has something to do with a V-twin's cylinder firing order (large intervals between each bang). Inline 4s can get away with a 4-2-1 because the engine fires the 4 cylinders in close succession, creating a constant scavenging effect within the exhaust pipe.

 

Because of a v-twin's firing order is far apart (made possible by the V layout's natural ability to cancel out vibration), it gives it a 'big-bang' effect much like a large cc single engine. This is what gives a V-twin its torque and excellent traction. But the downside is, to get more power you need more cylinders - it's as simple as that. V-twins are stuck with just 2 cylinders, which is why can't rev that high but they make up for it by making the bulk of their power way down the rev range.

 

If you've ever wondered why WSB races limits inline 4 capacity to 750 but 1000cc for V-twins... well, now you know.

 

I'm not sure how this rule applies to V4s (the best of both worlds) like the RC51 though... hmm...

Agree ...They are close that I will regard them as on par..
