Jan issue of Rider Mag....

.......on page 10 & 11 have first real article I've seen on the bike , specifically mentioning HP and Torque. New 1000 makes 99.2 HP and 76lb-ft of Torque. Up from 95.5 and 74.5 respectively. Max torque now at 4,000 RPM from 6,400 RPM as well. Says it is 18 pounds lighter than the previous , but mentioned only a 5.3 gallon gas tank. Some of the high lights. I usually am the last to know things , if this is old news , sorry.:mrgreen:

Cool...the most meaningful number there is the much lower peak torque RPM. Sounds like it's gonna be a quite 'grunty'!

Got turned on to Rider magazine three years ago when I got into motorcycling. I was given a load of old ones, and it helped me to quickly get up to speed in this sport. I was very impressed with all aspects of this magazine, and have a long term subscription. When I first saw the Vee2 article, I got excited. I quickly realized that it was just a spec. article. I am sure that Rider will be doing a full article on the Vee2 including a test ride as soon as they are able.

Two weeks till the motorcycle show in NYC, can't wait

Always be careful what you read in such articles. They are mostly just re-worded press releases.

The article states "Fuel capacity remains 5.3 gallons," suggesting the capacity did not change. In fact, it's a half-gallon less than it used to be.
