Whats your CC to weight ratio?

# Thread: Whats your CC to weight ratio?

1. ## Whats your CC to weight ratio?

I ride a 636cc sportbike and I'm 195 pounds.

636/195 = 3.21
displacement/pounds = a number which doesn't mean much but lets compare just for fun.

No scooters and cursers, sport bikes only please.

2. On my 600RR
600/165=3.6

If we wanted to be more accurate it would be the bikes total weight divided by peak hp.

I suppose you could throw an endless mix of numbers in here although its just for fun
Like my current DRZ is more than &#37;30 lighter than my 600RR though it produces less than half the hp.....

3. I ride a Honda so 929/160 = 5.8 and I'm damn sexay too......

4. If you're doing a CC to weight ratio why wouldn't you use kgs, or go use cubic inches and lbs?
1000/180 = 5.555
1000/81 = 12.34567

I just went with pounds because they are more commonly known. Its not like these numbers are accurate or anything anyway. Its just for a fun comparison.

6. HP makes more sence than CC

7. I weigh 210 pounds on my 600cc F4i. After 4500kms aggressive kilometers on a road trip that ratio does NOT work.

2.86 ratio.

An 800cc VFR would be better

3.80 ratio

8. fat= 900cc

DRZ400 ratio would be 400/165=2.4 Consider its 120lbs lighter than your average 600 sportbike and it holds up pretty good.

Did I rub in its %70 less insurance as well

What he said.....Stupid post. Twin- in-line 4 !?!?! CC to weight means nothing. How heavy is your bike? How heavy is your gear?

I can't believe i'm even responding to this.

Wait 'till TeeTee gets a hold of this one.

11. .8556149 horsepower for each pound of bodyweight

I never said this was accurate! Its supposed to be funny and stupid. Lighten up please. =)

Doing HP to weight ratio would of course be better but then you get people estimating their HP etc... 2 things people know easily:
1 how much they weigh and
2 how many CC's their bike is.

The two things we can learn from this retarded waste of time thread is:
1 who has the fattest ass on the smallest seat and
2 who its the smallest stick on the biggest bike.

Bah... I'm just killing time at work.

13. 600/96=6.25

However he did state sportbikes only and most 600's & 1000's weigh almost the same(within 20lbs i'd guess)

Its close enough for the ratio to be in the same ballpark as something more accurate.

and its just for fun
