  • Things that make you go Hmmmm

    I was checking out some numbers from sport rider mag online and looked at the Duck 996 VS the TLR and found this
    996S ('00)
    10/00
    28/39/36
    105.9 @ 8750
    67.9 @ 6750
    466
    439

    TL1000R ('98)
    10/98
    34/42/37
    118.6 @ 9000
    72.9 @ 7500
    505
    478
    The reason why I checked the 996 is to be fair. It was made along the same time line as the TLR and the TLR still got a bad wrap! Sure I see 39lbs but if you were to invest a couple thousand you could make em about even. Plus the TLR has 13 more ponies and more torque! How did the TLR get lost in the crowd?

      I think when Mladin called it a "pig" in an interview he'd done after the '98 season it pretty much pushed it down to the bottom of the superbike pile unfortunately. There was just not enough time spent developing it like the gixxers.

            Shoei,

            There is a difference between real world measured numbers and the numbers the manufacturers claim.

                  The difference is the year
                  The last letter designates the model year
                  tl1000rw =98 tl1000x=99 etc......

                      Manf numbers are almost always HP at the crank, what's posted in the mags is rear wheel.
