      Are these data reliable? I found different values on other sites. (I'm interested in the vt1100 c2 shadow ace)

      Thanks for publishing such useful stats for Honda fans. Will you continue to write posts like this about other motorcycles? It will be really interesting to see the stats of Triumph engines.

      I think it's fair to say that the majority of sportbike riders wouldn't care if their bike burned rocket fuel as long as it went fast, but I trust that it is an issue in the cases of the more mature sportbike owners.
