One thing to keep in mind about the article is that it only stands for full throttle. Most of the time, on the street, you are at partial throttle even when you are getting on it. I beleive that this will suffer with the single plane. I think is fun to have a snappy half throttle motor. Also, I cannot refute what the article says about the low end torque, but I have seen articles that suggest different. I think it just depends on the combination.
