The bigger engine makes the 1100 a much better streetbike, too. While the previous 1,000cc made ridiculous power, it focused all the thrust into the top half of the rev range. I recall describing the engine as having a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality, with 7,500 rpm being the transformation point. On the 2016 bike, you know exactly what you're dealing with from the get-go, so there's no surprises as the revs climb. Just more power and a sweeter soundtrack!
