    Hello BPJ , The problem we have is that nobobdy on this forum has a V4. Now , Stratos is on the list for a V4 but that is all we have at the moment. When FE gets his 650 Supelight we will have that feedback . That could be 12 months away unfortunately.

    Hopefully Stratos will get his V4 way before I get my SL...

    Something does not add up in the photo, either there will be 2nd hand bikes on sale soon or these will be lounge trophy's. Most of those owners pictured look like they have never experienced 110 Hp, let alone 210.

    However, from what I could gather from testing, it was one hell of ride, which is good to hear. A nice amount of power and the set up to unlease it from what I heard.

    You can add me to that list . Ive ridden a R9T Pure which the dealer said was 110hp and a Daytona 675 which is a bit higher.

    My Sprint is 128 hp with an alleged top speed of 160 mph, more than enough on UK roads.
    If these are going to be used on track then get used to load of Carbon fibre orders (along with pictures from A&E) for replacement body work - not that long ago a limit of 180 hp was imposed on bikes which could be bought by joe public...
    No doubt a superb tool in the right hands or a liability in a tool’s hands!

    Brilliant Stratos, you'll have to tell us what you think. Warts and all. Even if you do just use it for a lounge trophy, I'll be super jealous!

    My wife wont let me have any of my bikes in the house :(

    I can only imagine what it must be like. I have an EBR1190SX & it is STUPID fast at 185hp!! I almost never open the throttle full. NEVER in 1st gear! I can pass 5 cars in a shot!! My 1st ride on my Commando 961SE almost got me killed. I tried to pass 2 cars in a row, opened the throttle wide open & was hung out there with a car coming at me!! Lucky both cars gave me some room or I would have been a hood ornament!!
    Fun bike to look at and ride but be aware of 80hp!!!

    Funny how perceptions can be different, the 961 is my most powerful bike and i am enjoying how easy it is to overtake.
