News you can use
Here’s a fantastic resource. Motorcycle Consumer News has released their performance index of all motorcycles for 2012. It’s right here in PDF format. It’s got just about every bike available today in it, and it shows their performance test results in a number of areas, including weight, HP, Motor type, MPG, top speed, 0-60, 0-100, 1/4 mile time, HP:Weight ratio, and more. It’s chock full of goodness.
I note that my VFR rates 148.9 RWHP, with a 10.16 1/4 mile @ 134.9 MPH. 0-60 in 2.7 secs.
Funny, it doesn’t feel that fast when you’re on it.
