No offense V-Tom, but have you ridden an SV650? My riding partner has one and it Mondo stronger than mine, including the low-end power. Compared to mine it feels like an 800.
My Wee is a victim of the same de-tuning dumbasses who took 20hp off my old Magna (from the VFR it was parted from). If my Wee is "re-tuned" for low end torque, why does the SV murder mine at ANY rpm in a roll on?
Don't try to tell me it's the 40 extra pounds. I weigh 100 pound more than my buddy, and when we switch bikes, the SV still walks the Wee. BADLY.
