Triple will win ! The reason is it accelerates much faster! There is a power stroke every 120 deg of rev, instead of 180! The larger pistons of a twin will give more torque, but with more transfer ports the triple will out pull a twin EVERY TIME! Any one want to witness this, I will be at Little St Germain lake for the radar run the middle of Jan! I will have both of my BIG Cats a twin and a triple 800! The twin is all tricked up and the triple is just piped! I know the ZRT will do 100 mph in 500 feet!
kccats, you are right in every respect. The big thing that most people don't have a clue about is that there are more transfer ports on a triple than a twin of equal displacement. Moving the air through the engine quickly is the secret to horsepower. I laugh whenever I hear the old"twins have more low end power" adage. If you want to race to win you better have your clutching set to run the engine at the horsepower peak, forget about any low speed torque the engine may produce.
