Im considering picking up a REV600. What is the deal with the SDI? Is there any performance gains or is it efficientcy that you gain? Is it worth going to the SDI or should I get the base 600HO?

No loss in snort, and a gain in efficientcy. Plus it's clean:) I would definatly go with SDI. There is no reason not too, and you'll have to switch sooner or later. If I didn't bleed green, I'd get one!

If you look at the asterik, it says over the regular output engine, kinda misleading the way they have worded it.

Im reading the same thing and was a little scepticle myself.
These are the things Ive heard in the last day from dealers and owners. The SDI creates the same power but is much more efficient (claims 25% better gas milage). Well thats a lot of fuel to make up for the $1000.00 option, additional power however is priceless ;-)
How do you guy's think this will effect aftermarket performance upgrades. I know when the Harley's came out with fuel injection the aftermarket (exhaust and engine mods) took quite a while to come out. These machines will also be riden at near sea level so I wouldnt get the same benifits as someone out west might. What do you think?

SDI. If the 600dyno is anything like the 800dyno it looks like the SDI will be much better punch at trail speeds.
