Re: 2009 R1 heat exhaust-ion
Unless Rossi rides around testing on public roads, he probably thinks the R1 with undertail pipes is not as warm. He is used to testing and racing the M1, RC211V, or the NSR500 and those bikes put out significantly higher temperatures. For those bikes to put out 230bhp+ the temp will be close to 250 degrees. During the 990cc class Ducati had to basically perferate the front fairing to keep from cooking Loris Capriosi.
Basically with the new emmission regulations with convertors and noise reduction material on the bikes, we will unfortunatly have higher temperatures to deal with, but man these bikes will stuff we didnt think we would see a few years ago. It is cool to see production bikes with race technology out there!!
