I was talking about difference between the cast Iron Engine (whihc is on STD Bull and Electra) and AVL (which is on Machismo and TBrid).
And the torque figures that you are referring to are peak figures at particular RPM.
It talks nothign about torque at 500 RPM or 1000 RPM.
When you ride an electra, you realize that you dont really need to rev and gun the engine ... and you can ride at lower gear without putting much strain.
The same cannot be said for AVL engines.
And CB/CDI/TCI is not goign to change the thump to such an extent. CB/CDI/TCI all are just firing mechanisms, and under ideal conditions should be able to give similar results.
There are blokes who have converted their CB "points" firing to CDI firiing, with NO loss in thump.

I would like to tell you something.Two Electra's(4S and 5S) are seen by me Engine Opened in garage.They comes with "MAHLE" pistons without any extra "items" marked.no overbore thingy for sure.Can someone explain this? I used to believe that both std.350 and electra engines were the same! .std ,ofcourse comes with IPL STD pistons.

Mahle and IPL both supply pistons to RE. Some lots have the IPL piston and some have Mahle (Escorts Mahle) pistons. Mahle pistons(with Goetze rings) are a better combo than the IPL. When i bought a CI350 bore kit it came with the Mahle piston, lucky me.
