    If you can't keep the front wheel on the road how do you make it accelerate faster ?????

    I believe, and I may be wrong, but I thought the Anti-Wheelie devices reduced the power.

    Maybe sitting someone on the bars might help.----Lol.

    Does you new bike have reverse ???----Lots of those big beasties do as even on a very gentle slope you can't paddle them backwards.


    I read somewhere that the centre stand is electric as the bike is too heavy to pull back on a normal stand.-----

    If the powerband is aggressive and narrow you’ll land on your back. After the peak there’s no power left. If you tune it the right way the powerband is much wider so you can accelerate with the same or even with more torque a lot longer. If I compare my cb now to how it was than I would say that now it feels more like the fireblade. Only the blade is stronger and the torque/powerband lasts longer.

    No, there’s no reverse, I have very strong legs.
