You could have it tuned for better street use but, +18HP at 6700 RPM is awesome for street use.. I have a 2014 1290 Super Duke and love it!!! Now that's a great street bike..My ZX10R and ZX10RR are for racing only , not comfy enough for me to ride on the street.Just wondering; could one put this on their bike and then have it custom tuned to a more "street friendly" level? I'm talking more midrange power so you don't have to reach to the stratosphere for the ponies. I'm wanting a more streetable bike, I've considered getting rid of the 10 and getting something like the KTM SD1290 BUT I don't want to go back in debt for another bike. Soooo, I'm putting helibars on my bike and hoping to get a more "streetable" tune for it. What do you think? I know, I know, why would you do that to a 10R? Well, I already have it and don't want to spend $15K for another bike. Lol!
