With 98.8 lbs/ft of torque (manufacturer specs) the highest torque–to-weight ratio bike of its time. Even today these specs are still extremely high and are not for the faint hearted.

This particular super bike has also been fitted with the Termignoni exhaust system with an increased tubing diameter to not only give it extra Hp but to give it the beautiful note the bike deserves, standing 3 feet away from the bike you can feel the power rumbling through your body.

It is an absolute pleasure to ride. Then you up the ante on the track, this Bike will eat you for breakfast, keep the revs high (limited to 12,000 rpm) this bike is limited by you, it will push your limits to the max, racing through the gears on the straights, in 6th gear hitting 280 Kmh (limited) before you know it, then slamming on the Brembos before leaning over and taking corners faster than you have ever gone before.
