c14 power

Hey guys I was thinking of getting a 09 or 10 Connie and wondered what the dyno has to say. I know its a touring bike but going from the zx14 it can't be to detuned. What exhaust and mpg are you getting? I am really getting the iche to get one.

Just go to fuelmotousa's web site or areap's website for dyno info, as far as fuel milage I get around 35, but these are not highway miles. I got the flies out and since then I just use the super abundant torque to propel me to insane speeds quick without even needing the rev's. I have had a hayabusa, and this feels just about as strong down low, but the comfort can't be beat, and the brakes rock. Yeah it's not light, but feels real solid, kinda like a mercedes feeling to it.
It also depends on what kinda riding you do, I am getting older and comfort is paramount, so I will deem this the best bike I ever owned (out of 30). I cannot even imagine how much different tires could make it better, it really handles way better than you would ever expect from a large bike, seriously. If you think it will beat a zx-14 in the power dept, I do not think so, there is a good weight diference and a different level of tune as well. So if fast comfort is your theme, I do not think it can be beat....
