Even if there was one, would you give up your S3 for it? I know I wouldn't! Nothing matches the overall package the Triumph offers!!!

Not sure about paper specs but I recently rode a new Aprilia Tuono V4R and it blew me away. In fairness it was running an akrapovic slip on and re-map whilst my 11 triple is stock but it definitely felt faster/sharper, more top-end bias.

Is the curve better? There is a lot of debate on whether the Aprillia is better. It's not for me but I can see why people like it. For me, the package includes the parts, service, and ease of having dealers close by too. In my area, Aprillia does not have easy access for its customers. My parts and service seems to be much easier and of better value. Of course this is my opinion but I think you will find a lot of agreement on this as well.

What do you define as a better torque curve?

I mean any 4 cyl should have more up top, and big twins should have more lower down...

I was looking at some v-twins (ducati)ect and some of their torque curves looked quick bad, a naked bike should have a flat curve all the way, just like the speedy, don't you think?

I wonder what they did to get 76.3 ft lb. My 2011 with full low Arrow and PC5 with custom map only got 70.? I would like to have that extra 6 ft lb, why, just because LOL
