+1. And the S3 is just the coolest looking bike evah. Although, I would like to get my ass on a B-King.

This is a thread about torque, not riding. A Ninja 250 could hang with almost any bike in the twisties, that isn't the point. The S3 is just another bike, one of hundreds, they all lack something, and have something to offer. No need to get emotional, its just a bike.<br />

And this is why I own a Street Triple. The awesome, good looks of the S3, AND buttery smooth. hahaha

I forget the actual specs, but my 1200 Griso had a pretty flat torque curve and a surprising amount of top end surge as well.

What would you say the S3 does better than the SF?

I know it's a thread about torque but you started talking about buttery power and amazingly smooth transmissions ?? A Ninja 250 could hang with anything ???? Haven't seen too many up front lately ?? The Speedie is just a bike ?? JUST A BIKE ????????? I wasn't emotional before, i was just joking around a bit, BUT NOW !! JUST A BIKE ???? You are right about all bikes lacking something because the turning circle on the Speedie isn't great, can't think of anything else though ??

Maybe we should be talking about a Rocket 111 and torque ?

Not sure why you would even ask that question. I have ridden many bikes and the Speed is the BEST all round!

You must be smoking something...haha
Sorry, but 250 is not going to hang with almost any bike in the twisties
and Its not just a bike, its a passion for a lot of guys here. maybe just a bike to you....



to OP:
Sorry bud, its a invalid question, what's 'better' you want something to rock your world ? try a 250 2T and SNAP it wide open
a triple has a certain torque curve, cause its three cylinders and the firing order.
a inline 4 has a different torque curve cause of its firing order...a inline 4 like the R1, has yet a torque curve similar to a twin cause of how it makes power, crankshaft/firing order.
and then the ignition/timing/fuel air ratio....so many things that make up what you call 'torque curve'
then the bottom end for all the above.

A single cylinder bike, 4T bike has no top end, it cannot because of what it is. because it can only make power once ever few miliseconds. to change it to having more top end, I guess will need a bottom end change as well??( i think lol)

For example: The R6, though a inline 4, 4T, is tune to feel like a 2T, all its power is top end. It is explosive after 9/10k.

you must ride a 2T and it will answer a lot of questions

1) Tuono V4 R APRC (as in, its got a GP blueprint motor in it)
Would spank any naked...anytime.
basically a naked superbike.

The only negative I have against it, is that I don't like the ugly inlet tubes sticking out.

2) The streetfighter, once again, because its a superbike and modified to do street role.

then the rest...
