Not too sure how to answer that one...it all depends on how you're wanting "feel" the bike. The torque band is around the 2500rpm range...I also have a 05 speedmaster, and the difference is pretty amazing as far as torque, power, etc. Not quite as easy to "throw around" as the speedmaster, but the Bird does well in the city as well as the highways. We frequently do country rides, and both bikes are a blast...in any situation.

Good luck on your purchase!
