I see from searching the archive that the 0-60 performance for the 650 is around 7 seconds, but I found nothing for the 400. Anyone have any reliable data on this?




Peace.

Heck we don't even have "reliable" data for the 650. Magazine tests have reported 0-60 times ranging from 5.8 seconds to 7 seconds - quite a variance. Maybe one of them had a 90 lb test rider & another had a 350 lb test rider? Uphill vs downhill, headwind vs tailwind - I dunno. But I am convinced that they don't try for best numbers nearly as hard with a scooter as they do with a Hayabusa or a ZX-10.

Yes yes yes I hear you, but it just seems strange that performance information is available for virtually all mc's, but very hard to find for scooters. Havn't found anything for the 400. And hell, doing a 0-60 test for scooters is easier than for mc's - just twist WOT. I think I'll do my own with the trusty old 1000-1, 1000-2 method.




Peace.

Bleeder,

I spent about an hour searching the web last night for a test report on the AN400 that gave performance data. I didn't locate any. You are right. It is bizarre that every motorcycle test report and automotive test report gives that data, but scooter tests often don't. Even tests of relatively slow cars motorcycles usually have it... I found a very lengthy (european) test of the Honda Silverwing scooter. No acceleration data was given for it either. Ironically, the guy who tested the Silverwing rode his personal AN400 to pick up the SW for testing.

I checked the linky and I read that it takes 8.7 sec to 60 mph but that's for a 2000 model with the smaller motor...my 2012 feels like it does it in at least 8.6 :D

I tested my 0-62mph time with 1500 miles on the clock (we don't have 0-60 anymore as we are Uapean now!) not too long after getting my new 2012. I filmed the speedo and then timed it as I watched the film. I corrected for speedo inaccuracy with my gps. It was 8.0 seconds. Now two years on it's 7.4 seconds with standard rollers and 7,500 miles on the clock. Yeah, I know, not many miles...had a bad knee injury which stopped me riding for a while. There was a Youtube vid showing the 400cc Burgman with sliders doing it in 6.2 seconds. Nice! Sorry no link to the vid.

We may not be as quick as a crotch rocket, but we're just as fast (or nearly so)

I believe can run out of 7 sec. Think the 650 can make it for 6.

Yes we measured the works 650 Burgy years ago and it managed 6.7 secs for the 0-62mph dash. Carried out using lasers to measure speed and distance. That would be about 6.3secs for the 0-60 time. My 400 with lots more miles on the clock now does the dash in 7.6 secs for the 0-62mph run, and that's about 7.2 for the 0-60 time. VisorDowns site shows 7.57secs for the 0-62 time on the 2012 400. These are real figs, not made up. I think the latest 650 is faster than the old bike but haven't any idea how much faster.

Mech -- you want to try the HiT and SR, trust me. I'm positive the 400 beats 7 sec with this tweak.

I did a post some time ago after switching to Dr Pulley 19GM Sliders:

RPM for Various Speeds and

Rough check 0 to 60 (counting 1001, 1002, etc. vs speedometer). Several times and came out about 7.5 seconds. Sounds about right based on all the other inputs seen here.

19g are touring weight sliders -- i doubt they make acceleration any better, if not worse. Their purpose is to reduce rpm at cruising. Heck i even think now my 18g are too heavy, if i had to buy them again that would probably be lighter. I say probably because the roads are still long over here. :)

Isn't that very very close to 650 times? Hard to believe this could be so.
Reported times for the 650 vary quite a bit. I think that is because of the different ways you can use the CVT and which one the tester decided to use.

Slowest times I have seem have been from the tester just twisting the throttle wide open in standard drive. Best times from the tester revving the engine against the brake to launch with the CVT in manual mode and shifting just before redline. Runs in power mode with or without launching against the brakes are somewhere in between.

Test runs with the 400 would be easier as you only have two options. Launch against the brakes or not.
