Acceleration speeds?

Recommended Posts

My buddy says his cr250r does 0-60mph in about 4 seconds :applause: does this sounds right? I know that mx bikes are geared for quick acceleration but 4seconds seems pretty quick. I know this may be a pointless topic but I have always wondered what mx bikes can do of the start? what do you rekon a 250f would do up to 100kph? (60 mph)

what do you guys think my 500 would do then?

Bout the same... hella faster than an 80k(US) supercar ,your 500 probably gets better mileage too.

The rider weight and track/road surface will have a lot to do with the time....

The surface they do it on does have a lot to do with the times. You can really only compare times within the same test. The two-strokes are lighter, but they don't get quite as much traction. They could be faster in the right conditions.

That time seems about right to me. makes you wonder why anyone would pay 80 grand for a car that has almost that performance :applause:

Well, cuz with 80 grand worth of Mercedes SL500 you can get the ladies panties off in about 1.2 seconds, while I suspect it will take you several days of convincing on a CRF450. Now thats performance.

You don't need 80k to get great acceleration in a car. A Honda S2000 costs around $34k and it does 0-60 in around 5.2 seconds.

2005 Motorcyclist buyers guide page 68, the crf450, ktm 450 and yz450f all do 0-60 in about 7-7.5 seconds, at 4 seconds it looks around 35-40mph. this was shown via bar graph and tested with radar guns and was noted to see dirtrider.com for more results

No way are they that slow! maybe riding on ice with no spikes but not with decent traction and rider

I believe it, they probably have the power to do it faster but with traction and all I dont think its gonna happen. Besides, I dont think my cr250 does 0-60 that fast, feels more like 7 or 8. Still very fast though! :applause:
