The air-cooled 1976cc motor is a V-Twin that provides a lot of torque at lower revs.  Peak torque is made at 3,250 rpm, at 140 newton-meters.  It revs freely and provides necessary punch when passing other vehicles on city streets.  More importantly, it settles down at a nice 65 mile per hour cruise speed around 2,000 rpm.  The growl from the motor is absolutely infectious and had me wanting to wring more out of it.  Once cruising speed was achieved, it was relatively easy to have normal conversation on city speeds.
