The 2014 DL1000 Acceleration is Quick

After I got about 2000 miles on my new leftover 2014 DL1000 I tried a few max accelerations on an empty track from 0-60 to see what it had. I was surprised just how quick it is so I had to look it up to see what the testers actually get full out. I really had no idea it was this quick on acceleration. BTW - I am a very slow rider.

That tops a 2011 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce 0-60 mph at 3.2 seconds.

Ah, but you have not yet awakened the beast! Try a pipe and a PCFC.

I fly like I ride. Low and slow. lol That Hoover on the side isn't the most attractive thing on the bike.

The most difficult part of my 2014 DL1000A when attempting power acceleration is shifting to 2nd. The Vee is such a long throw compared to my old F700GS and 1st to 2nd I find very choppy compared to the other gear changes. I guess 0-60 I could keep it in 1st to see what she will do but trying to time myself is asking for trouble... On a positive note, trying to find neutral on the F700 was at times challenging. Seems like I'm always finding neutral on the Vee whether I want to or not! Anyone else notice this or should I take it to the shop to be looked at?

My previous big the Burgman 650 was very quick up to 70 mph or so and I could easily pace bikes ( not ss ) up to VFR800s etc.
Trick is the transmission. ECVT.
But buddy has a 1000 strom and no way I could keep in touch....in acceleration or top end.

I had been a unbeleiver on litre bikes as thought they were too heavy for the gain....my 650 Strom is quick enough but there is no thrill tho it is fun and nimble unloaded.

Then I discovered the CBF1000 .... zoom zoom, lighter than the Wee and fantastic torque curve.....so the thrills were there anytime on call and I can finally keep up with my kid on his FZ8.

and it doesn't need to wind out to get the rush ....torque comes on early and stays there.

I was surprised on the records that the Strom 1000 is as fast as some of the sport bikes. Yes the CVTs are bad to the bone. I tuned my Honda PCX150 scoot with NCY variator change and it is really quick for a 150. Max throttle runs right at 8000 rpm for the entire run.

I had read somewhere about a 0-60 in 3.6 secs.

I been saying it for a while, don't be afraid to rev it up, no matter what reviews say

I bet I was close to that with the top case loaded, all of the FARKLES, and DS tires. I am sure they did everything right to get a 3.1 out of multiple runs.

update: I just looked and the Gen 1 1000 got 3.6. The Gen 2 is the 3.1.

Yup it's no slouch, nor is the 650 to be honest.

...Note that the V2 is faster 0-60 than both the TL-S and TL-R and ties the SV1000.. They'd all take the V2 in the quarter though..
