If they were to put in the Bev's stonking 350 engine, then we'd REALLY be talking!!!

Bev 350!! 'Rock N Roll' :-) My GTV Euro 4 has been hitting high 70's (private roads of course) breaking the 80 barrier & getting there quicker would be cool.

I think we are in for a treat when these HPE engined bikes hit the streets. If anyone hasn't yet ridden a GTS300, in any form, they are amazing! They surprise just about everyone. But the extra torque and power will be welcomed by all I suspect.

HPE engined, when will that be? How would I recognize it?

Jim, the transmission engine cases on the new HPE 300's are different. Exhaust is slightly different too.

Thanks Data, unless words HPE are written on cases how would anyone know the difference? I’ve trolled the web but can find no reference to HPE engines.

Jim, take a look at the link in the first post in this thread. It explains it all. HPE is High Performance Engine.

Having spent a considerable sum last year buying my Sei Giorni 300 I won't be buying the HPE version :-(

I don't want more 'top end' but wouldn't say no to a bit more acceleration, imagine I'll go down the J Costa route at some point.
