Best thread I've read for ages.
It's not the v-twin formula that gives an advantage or else we'd have seen KTM fielding a team 2 years ago!
As percentage correctly states, all engines do is convert energy from fuel into kinetic energy. It comes down to the volume of gas you can combust- engine displacement, valve size, piston speed etc etc...
It's far from a simple equation.
And we've not even looked at gyroscopics from the crank. 1200cc = heavier crank, harder to turn?
I think the 1200 twin is a great match for the il4 1000, it's just that King Carlos was the class of his field.
