It looks like a useful service, if you're only interested in bikes built in the past few years. I noticed two omissions that I know at least one MoFo will miss: horsepower stats and weight. I'm surprised those aren't inlcuded. I didn't look at a lot of bikes, but they were missing on the ones I looked up.

The specs pages are okay for what they are, but if I need this type of information, aside from the manufacturer's websites I'll check out bikez.com and topspeed.com.

Yea where is the rwhpr and measured weight stat? (or at least the claimed numbers for bikes you haven't tested)

Why would I care about the compression ratio but no the rwhpr?

Handy. I've been using bikez.com for years, but it's a bit spotty with facts sometimes. Hopefully MO's is a bit better.

Because we're so busy doing our regular MO work, we're using an outside service to deliver these bike specs. Unfo, we don't have much control over them. I agree it would be good to have our rwhp data, so I'll see what we can do about it.

Now, I've gotta get back to selecting MO Babes...
