The ownerlink site of Honda states that the bike produces 154bhp at 11,250 rpm and 76.6lb/ft of torques at 9000 rpm.

it also states that the bike weighs 370lbs but I do not believe that either.

I own and love this bike....but those number are quite ficticious.
bhp = brake horespower = power the engine makes

154bhp minus the standard 15% for drivetrain loss equals ~130rwhp (rear wheel horsepower)

Those numbers seem dead-on to me.:D

Good point. You are correct. I assumed the 154 was the rear wheel power rating.

Mine made 131 -132 on the rolling road at the back wheel as standard. After my mods it now makes 150 at the back wheel. To be honest it only feels faster cos it makes more noise, but it will hold a new ZX12 with an exhaust to 165mph.

The 370lbs (168kg) weight is dry. No fuel, oil, coolant, fork oil - probably not even a battery. It's normal for manufacturers to state dry weight. Apart from BMW they all do it.

Still, the 954s dry weight is representative of its light real weight. Various magazines have weighed the 954 and confirmed its wet weight is around 434lb or 197kg which shows it still to be one of the lightest litre bikes ever (Sportrider even weighed one example at only 429lb).

By way of comparison: 1000RR - a porky 466lb (212kg), CBR600RR 445lb (202kg), '04 GSXR1000 443lb (201kg), '04 R1 450lb, (204.5kg), '04 ZX10 436lb (198kg).

(* figures from Sportrider)

Yup, the last true Fireblade is a hard act to follow. Well done Baba-san! :clap:

Mine has a real 150 at the back wheel and is a genuine 174 kilos with a tank of fuel (well about 2/3 a tank).

Yes - much modified.

Mine has a full titanium akrapovic exhaust, shortened inlet stacks, flap valve out of air box, PC with a custom map, and it makes a genuine 150 at the rear wheel - well as genuine as a rolling road is, but it only gave me 131 as standard so its pretty close !

Soon to have flowed head and reprofiled cams, corrillo rods and lightweight pistons on a knife edged crank and a HRC close ratio gearbox.

THat should get me another 10-15bhp with a much ligher engine so it revs more easily......

It could be the way the mapping, full exhaust, or # of internal mods...but technically it looks like you only have 3 more ponies then they do. So that what like another 2-4 mph and .001 of sec. better launch time big deal.

LOL Since you're new I'll take it easy. Most of the people that have read my post know what I have done to the bike, so I was just being a little fecesious (sp). I wasn't bragging about the power I have, I had the same thing everyone else has before I went and modded up for drag racing, which is where my bike sees most of its action.
If you read the above posts, the stock hp numbers are roughly around 132-136rwhp. The guys with 140-146 rwhp have power commanders and full exhausts. The only way a 954 will see 150 RWHP is with engine mods, which I do have. 2-4 mph might be about right...in the 1/8th! I would lean more to 4-6mph range in the 1/8th. .001; no way, try a few tenths (.3 +). I run 115 in the 1/8th on motor, and 139-141 in the 1/4. There's only one other person on here that is running those numbers, his motor is pretty much stock, but he took alot of weight off the bike by using race plastics and things he didn't need. Better launch????? Unless the bike is extended, it's highly doubtfull the bike will get 1.53-1.56 consistant 60' times.
