it is the other way around....
after test driving a Buell and riding some Harley's over the weekend, I would say it is the other way around. I have to really crank their throttle to go anywhere and get some steam going.
Get used to it, sure you can probably take/give a little slack from the cable, but the Suzuki redlines at 10 grand with torque stating to drop at 9500 rpm's so enjoy cranking the throttle, where the Harley's are totally out of breath at 5500 rpm.
This is not a slam on either product-it is just a character trait of the engine, I have also ridden Ducatis where if you breath on the throttle the bike goes off.
