I don’t know about the rocket three, my guess is the V2K won’t have as much grunt, and it won’t have as much as a Vrod, no matter what you do 😁. My VTX 1800 actually has more low end torque than my V2K. Just my 1.5 cents.
“…kind of thinks about it for a moment..,” I love it 🤣Save your time and money, it's Not a Power Cruiser like the V-Rod, V-Max and the like. The Rocket 3 isn't a fair comparison, it's basically a 3 cylinder car engine, 2.3 liter, 150 hp and 150 ft/lb torque.
The V2K isn't capable of the kind of hp the others are. Similar to the HD Big Twins, give it a hand full of throttle, it kind of thinks about it for a moment, then begins to move. Just the nature of the beast.
I have a V-Rod and have ridden the earlier Rocket 3. The V-Rod makes high revving power, the Rocket has power all over the place.
Although, per another thread, removing those secondary butterflies will help it only need a half a minute to think about it. 😜 And it might even bump up your mpg’s a little bit, it did mine.“…kind of thinks about it for a moment..,” I love it 🤣
About how much is Ivan's tune?Reprogramming the sub-throttle (aka secondary butterflies) is just one of the tweaks in Ivan's tune, if anyone hasn't caught all the details.
A lot of the work in the tune is related to addressing throttle response and the torque limits in the factory programming.

But if he was never familiar with the bike running properly… and he suspected that something was off.I would think with aftermarket pipes the sound, or lack thereof, from one big bang vs. two would be quite noticeable.
