· SC82 Specialist
I will say this....my 2021 SC82 is an amazing track bike but I wasn't disappointed with the stock bike on track. It is a VERY good package, even in US stock form. With a flash, euro velocity stacks and a full exhaust you really have a potent machine for a reasonable price imho.They say we are at our peak but tec seems to keep comeing out so who knows I'm neutral on this .
But not much reason to mod the heck out of a bike like this they come with the good stuff anyways.
I plan to do a flash, full Akra, OZ forged wheels, Stomp Grip, 520 gearing in the new 2023 sprocket sizes and Spider rearsets.
I rode my 2019 V4R (track bike) and 2021 SC82 (track bike) back-to-back on track with the same Pirelli slicks and I have to say the lap time is basically the same but the Ducati is WAY MORE DRAMA to ride that same lap and the heat from the Ducati is insane.
There is something special about the new SC82, esp the front end. Throttle response is pretty good too. Aprilia RSV4 is a cheaper alternative that is every bit as good, weighs the same, sounds better and is easier to tune but I really love the Honda.
