I've been told that someone brings one to the Cassoday, KS, 1st Sunday of the month Breakfast ride during the summer months. If that's true, I'll be there next month (1st Sunday in June) and see if I can get my 650 dynoed.
I did read a test report where it had been dyno'd. I can't remember the source. I do remember it was 38 hp at the rear wheel. They also remarked that the torque curve was very high, and almost flat. Due to the ecvt transmission, the engine is tuned for a broad torque band rather than max peak horsepower.
I would be interested how the bike was tested? Was it left in drive in the power mode or run manually? Different ways will give different results.
Cycle World Sept 03 ran one and came up with 35.9 HP at 6715 rpm
30.3 torque at 4925 rpm.
My own was run on a Dynojet Certified Dyno with the following
37.4hp at 7000 rpm 31.2 torque at 5000 rpm
This was the result of three runs all done in the same manner in the manual mode in 4 gear run it up to get into 4 gear then drop it down to 3000 rpm then turn it wide open till it droped off the power at about 7800 rpm.
The dyno link I left in an earlier post can lead to their price list. On that price list anyone can get three runs for $30. If I get a chance, I'll do a run in Auto, Manual, and Auto-with-Power mode for comparison.
You'll have to wait until June 5th, as that is the next date for the Cassoday breakfast ride where the dyno folks will be.
I posted that tread in May , Today was dyno day at my Triumph dealer. I had a free dyno for my Rocket 111, so after my turn and a dozen of bikes later (all Triumph), asked my dealer if i could dyno my Burgman, he said Ok. 42.5 hp at 6800 Rpm. Torque went 42.8 pounds at 5150 Rpm those numbers where on Auto, Did not have time to dyno on Power or manual. The dyno specialist did tell me that the ratio HP torque was very linear, and that it was a very performing combination. Dyno for the Rocket 111 wheres 147.4 HP at 5500 rpm and torque is 151.0 at 2660 rpm. Salut. Jaype
