Is the 1198 a step back in handling?
What I know about racing motorbikes can be written on the back of a postage stamp with room to spare for an advertisement, but something is bugging me in the back of my mind.
I have read all the hype, reviews, grand standing etc about the new 1198 and on how good it is. But you now have a 1200 engine running around in a race bike going around corners at an incredible rate of knots.... but what about those centrifugal forces associated with a 1200 bike? Doesnt that make it harder now to turn the bike into a corner?
I have never ridden a 749, but all who do ride them love them for their perky cornering abillity, which is atributed to less mass spinning around in the engine making it easier to ride through corners then the big brother 999.
How has the bigger engine of the 1198 affected/effected the handling compared to a 1098?
Just wondering out loud?
