There really can't be any debate over the RC30. The bike is masterpiece and quite frankly one of the few modern bikes that can be described as timeless.

You seemed so sincere and determined here, I went looking deeper. Apart from your spelling, Benli instead of Benly, it seems you are absolutely correct. I really doubted you when I saw a 125cc 4-stroke twin cylinder engine. I still think it is a ludicrous engine design, but you were right!

PS. More HAP linking too - I'm impressed.

So, Boldy, if a P2 125cc design is ludicrous, how do you feel about a I6 250cc?

One is a poxy commuter. The other is a race bike.

One is ridden by a Numpty. The other by Agostini.

One needs a broad power curve. The other may squash all of its power into a 2'000 rpm band.

Apples and Oranges HAP.
