Power Figures

Cycle World is estimating the Victory Gunners power figures to be 81 hp @ 4810 RPM and 69 lb-ft @ 2920 RPM. Those figures are based on the 2013 Victory Judge on the Dyno...

Is this what the Victory Gunner's power is actually? Don't we care more about the displacement of the bike than the horsepower anyway?

What good is displacement if we don't make power and torque from it?

displacement can be quite misleading. There are multiple factors involved in power outputs based on construction. Theres V-Twins, Parallel Twins, Singles and Inline 4's. Based on engine construction angle of the V, How parallel the twins are (opposite, concurrent firing), compression ratio and counter balance.

The generally accepted principle is that V-Twins are the torquiest...

even designs inside the chamber will give different numbers. piston designs. weight of the parts. everything is part of the equation.

there are some poorly made engines that make low power that are very high in displacement and there are some low displacement engines that make huge power.

i think without going to forced induction the highest horsepower I've seen is 180-190hp per liter? in a production motorcycle at least. Sometimes I wonder if motorcycle engine designers tried to make a 2.0L engine that made 400hp if that would be possible. Put that sucker in a car.

how many of you would consider forced induction?

nah. too complicated. its enough power the way it is.

Thats actually a decent amount of power the only thing that can help make things faster is the weight. 69 FT lbs torque is alright believe me. Where would you use itif it had more power capacity anyways? it ain't a rice rocket...

the gunner is a LIGHT motorcycle.

so the power it makes will be very effective in getting it moving

Yup. In that case it's probably better to look at the power to weight ratio, just to get a better idea of how it could perform.
