Thanks "better value" is a better choice of words. Spend the money upfront on a motorcycle that is already fast vs tearing into a motorcycle to make it faster.

As is often the case, fast is only fast enough for awhile. Then, we want faster. It's probably the reason we're not all still riding 350cc bikes. Or 750s, 1000s, etc, etc, etc.

Having owned a VTX 1800 and a M8 107, admittedly years apart, I would’ve guessed that my M8 would’ve pulled it out of the hole but the X would run it down eventually. By the seat of my pants, the X just felt stronger, but I could be wrong. The M8 is a very good motor though and no slouch.
