Nice to know, is the v4 engine have a lot torque that why feel more power than R1.Congrats! Always loved them. Looking forawrd to your impressions. I would have probably gotten a Tuono but my street riding is pretty urban/congested and the I prefer the more upright nimbleness and more relaxed riding position of the Hyper. I have an RSV4 race bike, and the exhaust noise cant be beat- and the V4 is an amazing motor- it'll propel you to speed in a disguising way. I got off my R1 and onto my RSV4, and it seemed slower, but was doing same times on it straight away, felt less frantic.
