Nah.. my friend knows how to ride... when we swap saddles the 90 still wins... it is very close but the 90 always seems to be out front. Maybe the 09 base model is lacking do to the addition of the muscle, screaming eagle, or anniversary addition, or maybe the v-rod needs more room to pull away (only racing while riding together and hitting 100-110). What ever the reason...who knows.If you're beating him, that's exactly what I'm saying. That video was from 2007, I think... The muscle was not available. That V-rod was the 100th anniversary model... Look closer...
I have raced V-Rods. I have won, I have lost. But ALL where within a bike length. Power to weight ratio is physics. Plain and simple, if you beat him, he doesn't know how to race... PERIOD. :bigthumbsup:
Also, the rider on the V-Rod needs to go on a diet mod, or he may have won. He had the hole shot, and a better mph (looks like JUtah ran 105 mph, but it may be 109 mph... not sure).
I am not here to argue and if every other v-rod can beat the 90... well... i traded in my GSXR 750 and if i really want to be "the fast kid on the block" i would just go back to the 750 or a 1000.. the comparison really isn't even worth talking about. The 09 base model (thats the cheapest version for those that aren't sure) is comparable to the 90 and not the 109. Been there and done that.
