all the tire testing I have read,a fatter tire is often your best choice,then why such a narrow tire on road bikes,weight and airflow.You can go 50 mph with 4hp,but getting to 100 mph takes 8 times the horsepower because of air induced drag.So you really need a slick body to pull it off, if it's even possible.But no matter the number's,your a winner,motorcycles are about as aerodynamic as a brick,granted their are a few like the Hayabusa that in a tuck with a lean rider can go like hell,but that's still leaning on the tank.Imagine going to work everyday leaning on your tank.I want my enclosed motorcycle with a drink holder,yeah I'm selfish,cruising to work or play.
