Maybe the 2 hour lunches have turned into 7 hour lunches.

155 is wrong. The suzuki was rated at 165 crank hp. It dynoed at 152rwhp. That is a 7-8% loss not 15%. The R1 which is rated at 180 crank hpwith the same percentage off loss would make 165 rwhp. Taken into accout the ram air which is resposible for about 8 hp and is not measured on a dyno that would be 172 crank hp. At 172 crank hp with the same percentage of loss at 7-8 % would equal 158 rwhp. The common loss of power is 7-10%

A simple whitewashing of the line for 2004 by Suzuki.



Their competitors should take note that the table is set and dinner is ready!

Default Sucker!!!

If you think that the Kwacker will actually be 365lbs and wring out 190 ponies, you are the most gullible person on earth, and I would like to sell you the Empire State Building. And as for how the "compatition" or anyone else will fare, well the only people I really feel sorry for will be the dead and/or mangled squids who have no business on such amazing, and thoroughly too much for most to harness to full capacity, machines.

Default Hard breathing

As far as I know the only reason the other bikes (ahem Ducati) is anywhere near competitive with the Suzukis is because they are forced to severely restrict the Gixxer's breathing.

Default Best of times?

I know some of you will dissagree, but the wide variety of new bikes has me thinking this is the best of times.

Where are the SV650 and SV1000 on the suzukicycles.com website? I can't beleive that they would discontinue them.
