Kevin Cameron takes a look at the 1190RX...interesting information on engine design. Can't wait for the road test!

Now that Egan's retired, Cameron is the primary reason I read Cycle World.

The article talked a lot about midrange.  I have to agree with how much fun it is to have a lot of midrange.

A strong midrange makes a bike feel really responsive to throttle inputs especially coming out of corners and passing.  It feels like the bike just “shoots” out of the corner and into the next.  I don’t think you can do that with a smaller displacement engine or one that has power concentrated mostly at the top of the rev range.  My 1125R is really great fun this way because that midrange is really strong, yet it has more than adequate top end to make it worthwhile to rev it to redline.  Buell didn’t really neuter the 1125R’s torque in the middle either via ECM controls.  You get it all any time.  This is also why testers wax poetic about the 1199 Panigale because it has midrange AND lots of top end power too.  The last test of the Honda CBR1000RR praised it heavily for having great midrange power and good top end as well.
