SV engine in the DL

I had an SV1000 before changing to the DL. I liked the SV but due to old injuries it didn't fit me well. I miss the power of the SV, how about using the same spec engine etc as the SV with the11,000 redline insted of the 9500 like the DL?

The SV had more power all accross the power band, not just top end.

The DL650 makes 5 hp more from 3500-6500 then the SV650, thanks to shorter duration cams.

Lets debate this over 6000 RPM and 15 psi.

Not having bought my DL1000 I was wondering that do aerodynamics not count against the DL vs the SV. The Strom is hardly likely to quietly slip through the air like a sports tourer.

Was reading this thinking the BHP is the same as my CBR600 with 50% more torque and I doubt a strom will worry any 600 class sports


Grrr?

What is the weight difference between DL and SV (given the same engine displacement). No doubt, shedding weight from any vehicle will make it feel more powerful. It's cheaper and easier than an engine replacement. But don't listen to me, I just keep adding stuff to my bike

IIRC, the SV650 weighs about 80 lbs. less than the DL650. Don't know about the liter bikes, I'd expect the difference to be comparable.
