Absolutely ! That's the one thing I noticed compared to my M900 and the same thing I told Lillia - the power delivery is totally different on the 695 - much smoother and linear.bigiain said:Thats true, but for what JimG is doing (optimising the gearing) it's the general shape of the torque curve rather than actual accurate peak numbers that he needs.
That explains why the one I rode yesterday felt like it did... It's _nice_ to ride with a torque curve like that... (and thanks for the test ride Lillia!)
and.....just so I don't feel totally inferior....the M900 stock, is 78hp & 53ft/lbs. The 695(according to the referenced Dyno charts) delivers 73hp & 47 ft/lbs. not much difference, but in the game of one-up manship, I am so glad that I am still a bee's dick in front. ;D ;D
