I took these from a post out of the UK - it was the MCN test:I also saw a dyno from Ducati of Seattle, the RWHP (SAE) was 181.2 on a very green bike. I am almost certain that the test was run on the same dyno as my bike, so it is an interesting comparison. I will try and get the Ducati's dyno run overlayed with my dyno run.Power: 177 BHP @ 13,500 rpm.
Torque: 76.7ft-ib @ 10.700 rpm.
Top Speed: 190.78 mph (oddly the speedo only registers upto 185mph - this was registered by timing gear).
0 to 30mph: 1.54 secs
0 to 60mph: 2.96 secs
0 to 100mph: 5.53 secs
0 to 180mph: 16.59 secs
1/4 mile - 10.26 @ 146.87
50 to 0mph: 25.67meters / 2.37 secs
70 to 0mph: 49.74meters / 3.27 secs
But looking at those figures...well, I thought it would do better. Look at the July '08 edition of Cycle World:
ZX-10R (quickest to 180mph)
0 to 60mph: 2.84 secs
0 to 100mph: 5.22 secs
0 to 180mph: 17.21 secs
Top Speed 184.53mph (limited)
Yes, there is lots more to the Ducati than straight line numbers (including the intangibles), but I think that is what attracts people to liter bikes - mind numbing thrust. And, bearing in mind the difference in testing conditions, it doesn't seem like the Ducati offers that much more (in the thrust department).
