Hi folks!

I've read a lot about V2 vs. il4 but i'd like to aske if somebody who has ridden il4 for a long time and then changed to V2, if it was easy to get use to it?

I think he means inline four versus a v-twin. The v twin is torque everywhere not just near the redline and therefore more user friendly for street riding in my opinion. Plus it's got a mean sound, not a wimpy whine like a lowered Civic with a Flowmaster.

I rode a Kawi ZX-6 and then a CBR600F3 for several years,
then switched to a 900SS, and then a M900.

I like the way the V2 makes power better. there is more oomph at the bottom of the range where you can use it more instead of always having to rev up.
i wont ever go back.

Same here. I had a 1999 R1 and a 1990 GSXR 1100. The Duc is way more fun. The only 4 cylinder I had that I really liked was my 1987 VFR 700 but it was a V4.
