Last night on 2 wheel tues they were testing the Ridley automatic, Bill put some info up or Norman :wink:
I'm not at home now, so can't find the article, but Motorcycle Consumer News tested the AN650 and found the horsepower to be 55 at the crank and 33 (I think) at the wheel, so a little less than the Ridley's 38 if that's also at the wheel.allwalk said:I watched the 2 wheel Tuesday show and saw the Ridely episode. They commented that the 750 Ridley puts out 38 hp. Now they didn't say if that was at the crank or at the wheel. If it's at the wheel than our own 650 Burgmans would out perform the Ridley's. If it's at the crank than our 650s would walk all over the Ridley as Suzuki reports our HP as 55.
Okay, I'm home now and have the article.NormanB said:I would reckon that the 650 would be nearer 40hp at the rear wheel (27% transmission losses on a 400 is the 650 going to be worse than that?)
Ya gotta love it!. Somebody should write a book. "Things Dealers Have Said". It would be entertaining at the least.Dennis Gross said:The dealer says its on the boat and should be here sometime in February.
