It's all bore and stroke. That is why the 1100 turns more RPM's and is able to blow by many other carbed V twins that have 50% more cubes at highway speeds.
Dual carbs lend themselves nicely to that set up. The 1100 is set up more like an F1 car....the big displacement bikes (Harley's etc) are more like tractor...low end torque, but run out of steam on the top end.
