Their review of the Tornado sound reminiscent to the F4S' review, when it first came out. Underpowered, fuel-injection problems, etc. Perhaps Benelli also needs a year or two to workout the bugs.

In regards to horsepower, I think their chart on file name "DEC 13" is incorrect. It shows the Senna with 128hp (which I'll assume is rear wheel). However, for the 998R, it's listed as 134hp. On Ducati's site, it list the 999 as 124 and 999S as 136hp.

You know, all of a sudden, I've gotten the itch (you know, the one that takes an impractical purchase to scratch it) for a 999 and a Tornado. I mean, you'll never know when you may be faced with a situation where you may need a v-twin, line-in four, or a triple,right? I just want to have all the bases covered. Yes, all the bases covered. Now if it only wasn't for the budget. :)
