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.”
