    Most Torque and Horsepower

    This may have been done already?
    What cruiser has the "Most Torque and Horsepower".
    Any size, any make, oh yeah, any colour.
    Thanks

    Well, that would be the Boss Hoss. Why not "torque per pound"? Pound-feet per pound?

    The best way to describe the power delivery of the Rocket 111 is abrupt. You might not think it's so bad in a test ride, but once you start living with it, I think you will start missing your V2K. Slow speed maneuver's can be very interesting, especially if the road surface is at all slippery. I was ready to sell mine after only 6,000 miles.

    If the Triumph has abrupt power delivery, I wonder what the Boss Hoss with the 454 big block is like.

    I've ridden two Boss Hosse's, and I know 3 people that own then, they all have other motorcycles for there regular day by day riding, the Hosse's are just for showing off.

    A good observation, methinks.

    I've seen many a R3 for sale with low miles, and most had a story like "No time to ride it, etc". That's the problem with a machine like that, and beyond, like a Boss Hoss. It's a handfull in so many ways, that it becomes very distracting from the ride.

    The V2K is a very big bike as well, but has tractable power and low COG. You sit in it, and with a good natural position (for me). Handling is super, IMO, and if you want the goods, just twist the wrist!

    I still like the idea of the Rocket, but the Kawasaki got there first. No way I'd give it up now, and two 2-litre bikes won't fit my garage...

    So is it meant to be sporty, or is it a cruiser style like the boss hoss?
