A UK first

Recommended Posts

Motohead ( free to download )has done a UK first , all the bikes sold, all tested at the same time and done properly

 

I have taken some snap shots

 

The first to annoy Yamaha owners ( don't worry I will bag on the ktm and Suzuki lol )

Next bagging on ktm ,for some reason this shows the ktm 450 lacking in mid ,they tested the husky and it's the same ,it's not a faulty bike

Next the 250s , the ktm and husky kill it ,and the CRF is no where near as bad as other dynos ,the rmz is stuck in 2005 Screenshot_20180130-084530.png

 

The 125 ,shows the progress ktm made recently

Notice how the ktm 250 doesn't lack bottom end like most seem to think , it's got by far the most ,it's a gearing and feel problem ,not a lack of torque

The KTM 250 is shocking.  Owns the field.

The Suzuki is the most shocking.  Gets owned by the field badly.

Most people go by "feel", and therein lies the problem. You want a bike to "feel" slow! You ride it harder!!! And your not concerned/scared of the "power", so you enter corners harder/faster.

I observed a CRF 250 on the Dyno today ,it has only 2hp more than my 150 and they peak at roughly the same , but it weighs 25% more ,it's power to weight is a lot lower

What kind of mods are done to the 150?

CRF150 correct?

I see guys putting alot into those.

Wondering how much power they produce stock and then how much more after modifications were made.

Your graph doesn't seem to line up with MXA from a few years ago.

Kinda suspicious here mog.  Did your buddy stick a sock in the RMZ throttle body?

Here is 2016

It's not mine or my buddy ,it's a UK online magazine called Moto head ,and if it was my buddy that would be stupid ,my buddy is a authorised Suzuki dealer lol

 

I know people think I live on a small island where everyone know each other ,but I didn't know about the magazine till I downloaded it

 

The beauty of this test was every bike was tested on the same Dyno on the same day ,that's unusual. Dynos read differently,my buddy SPS is a 500kg drum one ,USA use different fuel and mapping I believe .

 

Imo the motohead one looks low ,mxa one looks high to me ,no way a rmz is close to a yzf , they have only gained 0.5 hp since 2010 and it was not close to the leader then...

Vital shootout put the rmz at 35 hp ,I think thats more accurate than this bike on this days test ,Suzuki should have tested the bike before they brought it ,no one will buy one looking at that Dyno

The Yamaha EU market muffler is more restrictive than the US version.
