Once warmed up in the morning, which takes a couple of minutes and use of a nostalgic enrichener lever while you smell the roses, it’s easy to keep the 90-degree Twin spinning in its happy zone, anywhere from about 2500 to 6 or 7000 rpm. It’s never neck-snapping, but it’s never a problem to outrun traffic, either. Mainly, instead of metering out a small amount of available power, you’re grabbing a big handful. A non-objectionable amount of twin-cylinder tingle in the grips and footpegs reaches maximum at 4000 rpm and about 65 mph in fifth gear. After that, it cruises serenely along at 80-ish, and from there, the V7 has no difficulty at all pulling itself up to its full 38.7 horses at about 6000 rpm and 100 mph. Even a little beyond.
