my 88 motor was stock gearing and i dont think i was running anything over 70,maybe close to that,my friends 06 450r had a much faster top speed and i think they top out around 75,my banshees on the other hand are a different story
First of all a 87 quadracer is faster than a 250r stock, not on accel but about 4-5th they start to pull off.
Second they are not only straight line monsters, but they are one of the best cornering bikes ever. Hence there flat track dominations since the 80's. however the 250r will beat them in the air because of its suspension travel and frame design. That is why 250rs made the mx scene and suzukis tapered off.
HP is nothing more than a number for dyno racing or a number used to sell somthing. My point is Hp doesnt mean a bike is automaticly faster than another, there for its a worthless debate. For example: The 250r had more hp yet the 87+ lt250 was faster.
