Re: Holly mother of GOD!!!!!!

Don't speak Italian Proto, but I'm guessing "potenza massima" is maximum potential = HP? But what is 172 PS? At any rate, we all know mfr. HP ratings are usually inflated, and taken at the crankshaft.

US/International HP vs Metric (CV)HP

They (Italians) use Metric HP which differs slightly from our US/International based HP unit. However, this only equates to a couple of ponies in the 172 regime.

Yes, I know, it doesn't sound right but check the KW output and convert that value to US or International based HP and you will see the difference because they don't seem to equal on another. A little more looking also exposes the unit of CV aka Cheval Vapeur. 1 US or International HP=1.0138697 cheval vapeur.

Can you say 6 in a ROW!!!!

Re: Holly mother of GOD!!!!!!

That would be crank horsepower, I assume, so factoring in a 10% loss to get to the back wheel, that would make it 154.8.
or even a 15% loss would give you 146.2 at the back wheel.


I guess I'll keep my 149.3 hp 954, which is a bit lighter anyway.















Plus i can't afford to update anyway

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

Re: Holly mother of GOD!!!!!!

From one of my favorite reference websites, OnlineConversion.com: 1 pferdestarke = 0.9863201 horsepower [international].

So, 172 PS = 169.65 (or 170) HP. Like Mavic stated, only a couple ponies difference.

I'm with ratter...I'm keeping my 954. It's got more than enough ponies for me.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

I'm still liking my 929, so.

Be fast or be last.
