24. I'm thinking you'd strip the teeth from the belt if you twisted the throttle too hard.
Maybe a shaft would be better, but my belt-drive Harley is soooooo smooth.

I had a Ninja way back in the day that had just over a hundred horses. I could smoke the tire if I was waaay over the tank and bars, but I can't imagine what a bike with over three hundred would feel like. The only word I can come up with is overkill. Okay, two words: Overkill and overweight.
