Right about bore/stroke or engine characteristics?

Bore/stroke is apparently from BMW so I hope this turns out to be correct

Engine characteristics is just, from my standpoint, based on engineering principles related to long vs short stroke. A short stroke engine is by definition able to rev higher at lower piston speeds and has sharper response. There's less inertia to overcome when accelerating the crank on a short stroke engine.

How THIS engine feels we don't know yet, but by definition it should be more responsive than the N55 (unless BMW M has engineered it to feel lazy...)
