I like this :D

The Suzuki M109R was chosen the winner in this category for setting a new standard of performance at an affordable price. This bike could have easily been nominated in both the Engineering and Styling categories. The new 109-cubic-inch (1783cc) engine features the largest bore of any street legal, gasoline powered engine on the planet â€" bike or automobile. As such, it is also the only oversquare V-twin powerplant to be found on a maxi-cruiser type motorcycle with a 112.0 x 90.5mm bore and stroke arrangement. Suzuki is claiming 123 horsepower at the crankshaft! And the futuristic hot rod styling leaves no question about the machine’s performance aspirations. The look of this bike says “get the h--- out of my way.” But with a MSRP of $12,399 it is the only 100-cubic-inch class cruiser to be had for less than 13 grand, which earns the M109R our pick as the best value in big-bore cruiser land.

Yes a good value but you forgot about the 6 grand we all want to spent on extras. :D

:#1: :hot: Just got mine (red) 2 months and 1,300 miles ago. Had my eye on it when it first came out. Read articles til my eyes burned because I wanted a great cruiser. Naturally, nobody wants to let you drive the thing i.e. '"Not serviced yet" or "we don't have a demo ride program" .... soooo ... I had to take peoples printed opinion for what the bike would be. THIS VERY SITE WAS A HUGE FACTOR IN MY DECISION ... so thanks much!

Oversquare means the dimension of the piston diameter is bigger than the stroke dimension.
It is a big piston on a short stroke. That is why the M109R revs higher than most other V-twins.
Undersquare is a slim piston with a long stroke.
Square is when the dimensions are equal.
Harleys have a smaller piston and a longer stroke.
Longer stroke makes more low end torque.
Shorter stroke needs to rev to make more power.
Hope you are not confused? :dontknow: :D

I guess I should know but I don't. What does "oversquare" mean ?
Buying a H-D because a) your accountant neighbor got one :p, and b) you've always had a crush on Peter Fonda :-*

Thats why I bought it, could see pouring $5-6,000 grand into the vtx to add a 240 kit, pull the engine and change over to high compression pistons. I had given up on trying to do the soft tail. So I decided to go with the bike the was designed from the ground up with those components. Heck who knew I could go with a 280 without any mods and after some paint changes would even grow to love the rear look of the bike. Then to find out with some pipes and intakes I could pick up 20 hp +/- :eek: :eek: :bigthumbsup:
