I'm looking for my first big bike soon and trying to decide if a 600/650cc Twin or 4 cylinder is going to be better.
I understand that I4s tend to be higher reving and deliver the power at the top end, and that twins have lots of torque at low revs. But when it comes to sitting in traffic, filtering, motorways, overtaking etc. what differences do you actually see?
I'm going to be using the bike for commuting to work around the Nottingham ring road and for taking weekends away with friends around the country. So I'll be having a mix of traffic and cruising, and of course tackling the local B roads.
Which config is going to give me the best ride?
