Suzuki Specs

Suzuki GSX-R 1000

 

GSX-R 1000
The new GSX-R 1000 features a redesigned engine with improved efficiency and power output. A reshaped combustion chamber and a more aggressive cam profile increase power in the low to mid rpm range. The stroke has been shortened and the bore has been increased in order to maximize power in the upper rpm range while retaining the 999cc engine displacement. On the 2009 model, Suzuki switched from a hydraulic clutch to a cable clutch, giving the rider more control of clutch engagement and greater feel. The 2009 GSX-R 1000 also includes a redesigned, lighter chassis with improvements including a longer swing arm, more rigid brake calipers, newly designed cast aluminum wheels and more efficient cooling system.

2009 Ninja ZX - 14

The 2009 Kawasaki Ninja ZX – 14 boasts a 1,325cc engine developed for low mechanical noise and vibrations. Ram air induction, digital fuel injection and coil-on-plug ignition enables the ZX – 14 to produce 113.5 lb. ft of torque at 7,500 rpm. A lightweight aluminum frame holds the heart of the ZX – 14 in place, while the power is transferred through the six speed transmission and into an x-ring chain smoldering the 120/70 ZR17 rear tire.

Buell Specs

Buell 1125CR Specs

The Buell 1125CR combines Superbike technology and capabilities with the comfort of a street bike. The 1125CR utilizes an Intuitive Response Chassis, which is made of lightweight aluminum and is the stiffest chassis ever built by Buell. This chassis enables the bike to better hold a line and allows minimal flexing or bending. A longer cast-aluminum swing arm with its pivot shaft going through the engine cases creates a stiffer connection between the rear wheel and the rest of the chassis. These enhancements to the frame and suspension are meaningless if the bike is lacking in the engine department. That’s why the Buell 1125CR is powered by a Buell Helicon 1125cc V-Twin engine. The 1125cc v-twin is the most powerful Buell street engine combining just the right bore and stroke combination to deliver 146 Horsepower and 82 foot pounds of torque.
