i've embarrassed quite a few people on sportbikes through the twisties on my harley. now can i go around draggin knee? course not, but they're more than capable of keeping up with MOST average sportbike riders.

my stock harley, which isn't even a performance model, will top out at 130ish. weighs 680lbs, makes 79hp and 92 ft lbs. it holds it's own. they're not the land yachts people seem think they are.

there's guys running around with racetech suspension f & r and fully built 103+ c.i. motors (that's over 1800cc's for u metric folk), making 100+hp and 100+ft lbs. they'll run down all but the most expert rider on a 600.

depends greatly on the rider, but mid 9's to high 10's, some in the 11's.


and don't forget folks, the fastest production vehicle in the world is a HD. The VROD destroyer that runs 9.25's straight out of the crate.

Yea, Harleys are not slow. They have a lot of torque. So they take off pretty fast.

my stock gearing runs out at 135 mph or so, at 7k rpm's

I dont think any of us will see that stock for stock, metric gears allow 170+ mph, my Hardley ends up in the 135 range, and its not safe at that speed by any means. no fairings and high speed isnt happy with the hardley.

my Harley has a 28* neck, lowered and progressive set up, it can hang the twistys no problem and have narrow chicken strips to vouch for it, its got well over 100/100 and is a sight faster than most metrics think it is. its probably the funnest bike I own out of 5 (I have metrics also)

And it might be the quickest but not the fastest.Almost all new 1000s will run close to 150 in the quarter.Destroyers run mid to high 140s and arent street legal

What harley do you have? My chopper goes 140mph and I have a 117 s&s motor with a 600 lift cam that produces probably 115 hp with 110 lbs of torque. .

Only place I'd run on a harley is in the middle of a rally when there are 200 other bikes w the same saddle bags and bars as mine... Pull right in, hop off and slip out of my sweat stained leather vest.
