    GUys this is the SBK discussion thread right ?

    i have a question....

    why do the fuel efficiency of a SBK so less ?
    ok let me get my facts and thoughts straight.

    take for instance a bike in the litre class.. and we shall compare it to a car in the same segment..
    SBk have a very high , mind blowing power to weight ratio...

    where as on the other hand , a 1000 cc car has a weight of close to 1000 kilos..yet the bike manages to give a slightly similar mileage. Y is this ? i expected a sbK to give a mileage of at least close to 30 ... honestly.. !! AND is this topic already discussed ?

    Default SBK mileage

    In a SBK, part of the petrol is utilised in "fueling the ego" , hence the low mileage.
    On a more serious note - the acceleration reduces the average . Sedate driving returns an average of about 19 kmpl on my 1000 cc and on the 650 cc gives an average of 25 .
    Besides, when astride a big bike, the concern is not average or the number of times one visits the petrol pump is it ?

    1. To begin with basic numbers: 1000 cc hatchback, 65-70 Bhp odd, whilst an average liter class bike is upwards of 160-170 Bhp, now the BMW rated at 193 Bhp.

    2. Mostly, you would find an average big bike owner redline the bike, pull the throttle uselessly (on excusew of warming the motor), etc more often than your four door hatch driver.

    3. If ridden at cruising speeds of 100-120 kmph in topmost gear, liter class bikes would yield in the range of 25 kmpl on a long distance trip. Believe it or not, I have seen an indicated 27 kmpl for a few seconds on my 954.

    Default L.e. Sbk

    Does anyone know where can one find information about the limited edition bikes? E.g. powersports.honda.com doesnt have information of their L.E.'s. I am particularly interested in looking for information on 2007 fireblade LE. There are loads of pics available on the net but I need official info...

    A car engine needs to rev much lesser than a bike engine. You'll see all cors are very conservatively redlined at 9K to 10K rpm. And they are tuned that way to drive easy, and deliver max power at very moderate RPMs.

    And the converse is for a street bike. Cramming a 1000cc engine into a chassis and extracting the kind of mind numbing performance needs the engine to be a high revving, and in a higher state of tune.

    And a car has all the space in the world for a bigger engine. A Street bike does not. It has to make the best out of what it has.
    You get the point?? :D

    Woes with Yamaha - You mean with the servicing aspect? My issue with Ducati wasn't that alone. Either way, I will have to fend for myself with my next bike, but I ended spending a lot less.
    Not only servicing; the purchase, the customer satisfaction, etc. They are pretty pathetic here in Mumbai. Honda is way better.

    Wish you all the best with the brave move you've made, if it all works out according to plan you've made the right choice for yourself. BTW, another friend bought the 1198S.
