    I assume they're rear wheel figures?? Either that or they're all telling porkies!

    I wonder how the RF compares to the out going V4?? Less in the lower and mid range??

    RSV4-RF v R1-M

    Question is did the r1 have standard ecu from USA or a flashed. Because I've heard it's down on power for EPA standards.

    I know there's more power at the top, my point is in relation to the torque curve being moved up the rpm range to favour top end power, therefore there must be losses lower down, so I'm assuming the new RF makes less power lower down in favour of more power at the top rpm range potentially making the engine more peaky .. The new R1 has been reported as being peaky and has less drive lower down than the older model, so is the new RF power delivery guilty of the same?? Its a damn fine torque curve non the less!
    As they say, there ain't no gain without pain!

    I've heard the same. We ran into a journalist from CycleWorld that was out testing the new R1 and he said that there's a map flash available to get the full power but it's race only and deactivates the headlights and such. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before someone comes out with a good reflash for street use though.

    Attack (I think it was, or maybe Graves) had a dyno plot up on their Facebook page showing 170-something to the wheel on a stock untuned 2015 R1.
