Opinion is that its a very nice bike.
a good 20 HP more than the next best at the back wheel.
The most impressive bit though is the Traction control.
I had it in rain mode at first which gives 150 Hp and a slower throttle response, The bike felt like a normal jap litrebike, but with a slighty lazier throttle response.
I any of the other modes its just mind blowing, "Slick" mode feels like you are operating the throttle butterflies with your hand its so responsive.

£12.5 K (same as a 2010 Yamaha r1) They are going to sell them by the shedload.

I reckon, when its run-in and with the ram air effect 200 hp at the wheel is gettable from a stock bike!

If you do get an RSV4 Stealth let me know as I have some spare extinguishers at work that are OK for electrical fires!

"Meanwhile - I think it's time to get the Blackbird out & try out my new Shoei helmet"



Excellent choice Stealth!

I too am a Shoei clad Blackbird rider - (when the weather improves)

Is yours a proper black one?
