How many horsepower does it take to have fun?

"I don't ride NOTHIN' what don't have at least 150hp............"

Overheard in a Kawakaki Dealership - said by the "friend" of some guy that was lookin' to replace the ZX-6 he'd just crashed with something that had "a little-more power". They were lookin' at the 'Busa's when I left.

The correct question is "How much does a bike have to weigh before you cease having fun?"

Even a demented Knuck owner's gotta start gasping at the idea of 1000 pound (1/2 ton!) motorcycles. We'll have those in a bout 5 years at this rate. Yikes!

That's called "Road Holdin' Weight" son....helps to smoooooth out the ride so the little Lady don't get flustered..

A Star Ride 11-20-2009 02:14 AM

I would like to add that the weight is nice to have in some situations. I ride a star tour deluxe, which is actially within inches and a few pounds of the electra glide, after 15 years riding Ive never felt as confident as I do on this heavy beast. I ran over a cat on the way home earlier this week and diddnt even feel it, thought I missed it but checked my mirror and there it was fliping & rolling up the street, sorry but better him then me, I was accelerating & standing the bike up coming out of a turn during contact.

But Ill also say that even on the slightest inclines the bike is very difficult to maneuver and physically demanding in town to wrestle around, if I did alot of heavy traffic & bumper to bumper, Id rather have a smaller bike

Pretty bike that is. Maybe someday when I am grown up I will own something like that.

On the other hand, I like the rev limiter on the far side of 10,000 rpm and 150 or so hp on tap. I want my bike to be comfortable enough to do a 400 mile day, yet also an intense sporting vehicle that can focus my attention and fill the bloodstream with a cold shot of adrenaline on command. The paid for in cash FZ1 in my sig photo does all that for about 1/3 the cost, out the door. 24K? Get real...
