how much H.P. do the NHRA dragbike's put out?

I was curious after watching the NHRA dragbike's last evening on tv how much H.P those bikes are putting out, also i didnt realize that most of the field is buells/HD'S, i dont watch drag racing much but i must say watching the big boys run was pretty entertaining.

uhh....... i do know that top fuel F/C and top fuel rail car's are in the 7000-8000 hp range, there's no-way those bike's could be putting out 1500H.P i dont think the pro-stock cars are putting that much out.

The only NHRA motorcycle class I am aware of, is Pro stock. Those bikes make around320-330 RWHP. Might be a little bit higher.

Top fuel bikes are not NHRA
Top fuel dragsters are rumored to have 7000 hp

Here is a link to a Steve Johnson article.

http://www.knfilters.com/news/news.aspx?ID=223

$100/HP...not bad...

Plus this is a clipping from the NHRA site:

Pro Stock Motorcycles: Producing more than 300 horsepower, these highly modified motorcycles can cover the quarter-mile in less than 7.0 seconds at more than 195 mph. The chromoly steel chassis is cloaked in a lightweight, aerodynamically enhanced replica of the original motorcycle body, and the carbureted gasoline engine may be a Harley V-twin, a two-valve, or a four-valve.

Well, I started out with nothing and I still have most of it...
