The MCN dyno claims..

from MCN website today:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ZX-10R vs Blade vs GSX-R1000


29 Jan 2004


We’re conducting the first full group test of this year’s leading superbikes over the next few days.

We’ve got the bikes, we’ve got the riders and we’ve got all the measuring equipment set up. Now all we need is a break from the weather…

But we’re confident the next few days will give us a chance to ride the Kawasaki ZX-10R, Honda FireBlade and Suzuki GSX-R1000 to their limits for performance testing at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground.

They will also go on the dyno to reveal the truth behind the power claims. And they’ll go head to head on real roads.

We’ll bring you first test verdicts on the shootout so many have been waiting for early next week, so keep checking back on motorcyclenews.com
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

For those who are hearing the rumor that MCN has already dynoed the bike, and it fell shot of 149 rear wheel horsepower that is bullshit. A gixxer fan is just starting rumors. Though the acutal horsepower might be in that neighborhood somewhere, it has NOT been dyno'ed yet.

Good news for everyone though is no one is going to dyno a bike prior to break in simply because it robs overall power and performance for the test, and because if you believe in traditional break in methods it would be horrific to rev the crap out of a bike not properly broken in.

The rumor is bs. Don't worry next week we shall know the truth. And it will set us all free. :D
