Mate of mine has a big Harley.. I think 1800cc..reckons it's a stump puller :wink:

As for that Rocket with 2.5l engine, and even with a big back tyre, I would think it hard to get the power down :unknown:

I actually like the original 1975 Goldwing..simple, 1000cc without all that bulky cruising crap.. but each to their own and what you want it for.

1.8 liter engine? That's bigger than half the car engines out there!
So is the price

I have. And they have around 180nm of torque.

About twice as much as a Ford Focus, by way of example.

Yet low hp to engine cubic capacity at just 118hp.

It's all about the torque.

What makes 118?
The Honda Goldwing GL1800 makes more than that.

Ford Focus is a car. Not a very good example.

Real life riding a modern thou would piss all over that in all situations. You might have to drop a gear but that’s like 3ms.
Don’t listen to Chinese whispers.
