On most of the I-4 bikes I have had, there is a certain point in the rev range where the bike really comes into its own and seems to come to life. Others may enjoy the torque and feel of a twin or triple, but the I-4 is my preference.

Having owned a couple of V4s, especially the VMax, I'd say I like a V4 best. Not a big fan of the parallel twins, but I like V2s, I4s, and V4s.
Surely there not much to compare to the rush of a fire breathing full tilt liter bike once that tach swings past 9k RPM. Just intimidating enough for me to step down to the V twin Ape.

Another vote for V4s. My RSV4 RR sounds unbelievable with the Akroprovic

All I have are inline 4s.  Even on an old school bike, hitting the power band at 5k is a great rush as it continues up to redline.

Big difference being those old air cooled 1000cc bikes don't even match the acceleration of a modern 600cc race repli bike of today.
Until you actually ride a modern liter bike, and really get on it hard, you just have no idea.
