Jon, it's a 1500.
Simon- I wasn't making a swipe at all. I know what the potential of the vn750 is, I rode it all the time. I was speaking in the terms of the rpm and speed on the 750 and C50 compared to the larger 1500 when you are doing a typical cruise down the road in traffic. At 45mph on my C50, and on the 750, I can cruise in 5th gear, and the engine is running nicely. At 45 on the 1500, I'm still in 3rd gear, maybe 4th but in 4th it's almost idling. Could I be in a lower gear on the smaller bikes? Sure, but what's the point of running along in traffic pulling 5 grand on the tach, if I can sit at 3 grand in a higher gear? The other big difference is highway speed. At 70 on the 750, it was in the 5 grand range on the tach. On the 1500, (no tach) it seems more in the 2.5/3 grand range.
Hyper and Dave- thanks! I'm glad we went for this color vs basic black, though those are nice too. This one catches your eye. When it was sitting in the showroom after they had built it, and we were finishing up the paperwork, we got a lot of positive comments from customers and workers about how good it looks.
