Better than being thrashed with a wet lettuce: Honda CBR reviewed - Geoff Hill - Mirror Online
Yet the engine with its spot-on fuelling and the right gearing allows the same bike to a low center of mass and the fact that the addition of the rider into the equation does not result in Torque Nm/ 8, min-1 (95/1/EC). Matches 1 - 9 of 9 Honda CBR Motorcycles For Sale in Arizona - Find new and used The formula is simple: we built a special chassis that puts the cc but is tuned to produce more torque and horsepower in the midrange and. Geoff finds the latest version of the CB is simple, sporty and extremely user- friendly. by 15kg and increasing both power and torque for a 20% increase in power to with a beautifully linear power delivery in a happy marriage with a Wind and engine noise on a bike produces noises levels up to.
So we are solving for acceleration and we have a constant mass.
Better than being thrashed with a wet lettuce: Honda CB1000R reviewed
But remember, the transmission ultimately gives the force to the wheels, not the engine. The torque at the wheels is the torque at the engine combined with the torque magnification given by the transmission through gearing. And RPMs are what allow us to use gearing effectively, which gives us more torque at the wheels. Notes For any comments, corrections, flames, or other types of input, feel free to contact me.
Gearing is extremely important because it controls RPMs and therefore horsepower. Gears magnify torque — hence the acceleration available in first gear.
Low torque, high horsepower. Another excellent explanation of the topics at allpar.
But it runs out quickly. Racecars have high horsepower due to high RPMs, not due to high torque see gearing. For the most part, the engine plays along splendidly.
First Impression: Honda CBR
The fly in the ointment is a relatively pronounced flat spot found between 4, rpm and 6, rpm see dyno chart borrowed from the Akropovic web site. A good rider may find this frustrating when rolling on the gas exiting corners. It is not so pronounced as to completely halt acceleration in this range, but it is certainly noticeable. The brakes are good — with plenty of power and decent feel.
Certainly up to the standards set by the naked bike category if not the latest superbikes. Good feedback is felt through the chassis from the Bridgestone contact patches on the road.

Vibration levels and sound emitted from the inline-four engine are, for the most part, pleasant. Vibration is there at higher rpm levels, but never unduly annoying. The intake and exhaust note are an improvement, but not up to the standards set by some of the competition Kawasaki comes to mind.
All of the hand controls, including the clutch and brake lever, are comfortable and easy to use, as are the thumb switches. The Honda CBR represents a huge step forward in terms of styling.Horsepower vs Torque - EXPLAINED!
The bike is stunning to look at, and the fit-and-finish is top notch. Both make the same peak power, just under horsepower.
The big difference is in torque and rpm: The R6 makes just 44 foot-pounds of torque and revs to an astronomical 15, rpm to make that horsepower number, whereas the CB revs to just 10, rpm but makes 65 foot-pounds of torque - almost 50 percent more than the R6.
The Relationship Between Horsepower, Torque, and Acceleration
Clearly torque, rpm, and the spread of both torque and horsepower are characteristics just as important as the peak horsepower number. While the differences in those values may not be as pronounced among bikes in the same category, it's often enough that one bike may feel considerably different than another, even though they have the same peak horsepower.
Part of my interest in peak horsepower numbers and how they relate to "real" power lies in the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship rulebook. Currently, bikes in the Superbike class are limited to horsepower as measured on the series official dyno, while bikes in the Sport Bike class are limited to horsepower. Savvy tuners know that peak horsepower is just part of the equation, and will work diligently to boost torque and horsepower across the rev range without going over that magic number.
