I'm curious if they have that Harley-esque sound to it... I'd love to have a race bike with some growl on it

A suzuki SV650 is also a twin and sounds very sweet.

The SV650 will trounce a firebolt on the track.

They also make an SV1000 if your racing is all in a straight line.

Ducatis are sweet, but the cost of ownership is extremely high.

Honda superhawks are fast liter- twins also.

I really like twin-sports, there are many advantages over the RR-type I-4s for a street or short-track bike.

Totally unlike a Harley in that they don't sound like shit.

It will be a slower pace than a asian or european sport bike since it runs at lower RPM.

It does not sound much like a harley due to the differing muffler arrangement.

Find a used Suzuki TL1000R that has the rotory shock removed and the Yosh black box / pipe on it.

I rode a Firebolt at a Harley open house several years ago. They sound like a 5.0 Mustang. I'd call it a smooth snarl. Not quite the bark of a Duck, but similar. All of the liter class V-twins sound great.
