Honda CBR1000RR Superbike Produces Close To 215 Horsepower

from roadracing world.


Copyright 2003, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.

The American Honda CBR1000RR Superbike which was clocked at 192 mph during the recent three-day Dunlop tire test at Daytona International Speedway produces approximately 215 rear-wheel horsepower.

The figure was determined by one paddock insider who calculated the approximate power output of the Honda based on the known power output and radar speed at Daytona of the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000.

The horsepower number is approximate due to the unknown coefficient of drag and the unknown amount of rear tire slip of the Honda compared to the Suzuki.

When asked about the 215 horsepower figure of the CBR1000RR, a source inside the American Honda team said the bike had not been on a dyno but the figure “sounds about right.”

215 though, think about it... I wonder if the GSV-R and the Kwak GP bikes even make that much juice!?

Probably, but they just can't keep it under control. 215 sounds like a lot (and it is), but then those Gixxers aren't making the stock 150 either . . .

In 92, the RVF750 TTF1 machine was making 180 and weighed in at under 260 lbs. This is why they started outlawing these machines (TTF1) in WSB events.
