Do you ride these bikes and then say one has more power than the other? No. On a track as tight as Valencia they all have way too much. Not having ridden a 286-pound RGV500 in a while, I really didn't notice the extra 33 lbs. on this thing so much, but the KTM 250 was the most enjoyable bike at Valencia. It's 100 lbs. lighter than the big bikes, so when you turn that thing you'd better be pointed where you want to go because it's already there. All the little rewards of hitting your marks on a two-stroke really came back to me. The biggest challenge with the 185-horse 500 was getting around a track with a powerband that was only 2500 or 3000 rpm wide at best. The hardest thing for me was learning how to get the gearbox set up. With maybe 12 or 14 corners to get around and a different gear for most corners, picking the right ones was do or die. It had to be perfect, so when telemetry came along, that really helped me. When you're on a four-stroke with 5000 or 6000 rpm to work with, if you've got a gear that's a little bit short, it's not the power delivery that's killing you, it's the rpm where you backshift coming into that corner. You still need all the right ratios on the four-stroke, just for different reasons.
