It's all about the capability of the rider - driver!

The V with a solid launch and flawless run should beat near any (true) stock V-twin. When I say stock I'm referring to internals, pipes and air filters do not make much difference.

It's not even about the rider with a mean streak. You can miss a gear and still beat it. The M109 has the same horsepower and more torque so it's a different story. A V-Rod is faster, but that doesn't mean the rider is capable of it automatically. M109s have junk for clutches and transmissions and are giving up more power to the ground with the saft drive and they weigh more, equal riders, then an M109 should be a walk in the park as long as the V-Rod rider understands the engines operating range. It's just getting good with a V-Rod by the time the M109 engine is weazing for it's life, the reverse is true at low RPMs and that is where you have to do it right on a V-Rod, as in don't ever be at low RPMs.
