Kelley Blue Book just posted up a comparison video between the VN and CTR. While I doubt that anyone looking for a hot hatch cares about fuel economy, I do wonder what we will see in terms of depreciation.
Most of the records that the CTR has been breaking are all because its FWD. With essentially no torque steer in either model, I don't think this change is really necessary. Its going to come with additional weight as well.
