A claimed 180 HP and sweet new styling. Nice looking bike.

an extra 40 or so hp at the rear wheel

holly cow...what a insanely fun bike that would be.

can't wait to trade mine in to get one next year if they can really produce that kind of power.

probably in stores around march? it took about that long before i saw the '03s.

man...some small guys are going to get to hit 200mph on these puppies

That 180hp is at the crank Prob more like 160-165 to the rear wheel. My bike is probably at 150, I couldn't imagine an extra 15hp

I read in the link the motor is designed to put out 180 hp, doesn't mean it will out of the box. Also, a lot of the new bikes are going to come with closed loop circutry to prevent toying. It's still kind of a secret, but some of the early release '04 have it. No doubt it is a sweet bike, aside from the TLR styled swing arm.

That is one pretty bike. Oh to have space in the garage for a spare bike. If its at all comfy I might have to think about it a little harder.

does anyone know what % of HP is lost in the chain for a typical 530 chain? Does 10% sound reasonable? If so, then the RWHP would be 162, with 379 lbs dry mass.

When my bike came out it was said to have 152 at the crank. Dynos showed about 135 at the rear wheel. That is about 11-12% decrease.
