Second guesses on the horsepower of the new V100...
« on: October 26, 2021, 06:47:14 PM »
Hey!!!  I never got the chance to guess!!!!!

Was the original guesses based on manufacturer's claims or actual rear wheel measurements?

Who get to be the officially sanctioned measurer of true horsepower?

I vote for a WG member knows who actually takes their new V100 to a shop with a dynometer!!!!

If more than one WG member gets their V100 on the dyno, we used the numerical average.

Just for the sake of argument....  HP = (Torque in ft-lbs)(RPM)/ 5252

I'm guessing 92 rear wheel HP, and 65 ft-lbs of torque!

Chads contest is finished and timed out.
At his request the thread was locked pending the findings and deciding the closest 
entry and the actual winner known.
Therefore further entries are unnecessary or accepted and will not be considered for the unknown prize.
Sorry, this event is not one of those “better late than never” events.🤔😂
I hope everyone realizes this is all in jest and fun.
Maybe we all needed something like this to remind us that the WG forum is supposed to be a place to have some fun👍

What Dan said is completely correct.

However, in an effort to help my fellow Guzzi brothers, I will tell you this.   Several of the answers you seek here, are within the now locked thread, just read with a bit more intent.

Did you read the thread? the first post? The idea was to guess what Guzzi's claimed HP would be when the bike officially launches and they reveal HP figures.  It wasn't 'what is the actual rear wheel horsepower measured on a dyno'

read the original thread?   :sad:

Do you realize how much that stifles individual creativity, imagination, projection, and rationalization?   :wink:

If we all did that, the internet would go dark!!!

Every post as unique inkblot for each reader is much more entertaining......
