Just Curious

I've searched the forum and maybe I'm missing something. But just out of curiosity I'm wondering what the rear wheel hp is on my 2015 V650.

Sorry if this topic has been covered already and I failed to find it when I searched.

Link to the 2015 V650 Service Manual?

Not in the owners manual.

claimed peak power went from 68.3 hp to 69 hp
...and yes, that may not be rear wheel data

I don't know exactly what rear wheel HP is for the Versys, but clearly the green ones are putting out a little more than the other colors.

The given power is likely at the crank, I've never seen a manufacturer list a rear wheel power rating. So I'd guess if it's 69 or so at the crank it'd be about 52-55 at the rear wheel. Only a dyno can tell you for sure and they lie as well. No two give the same numbers and a single dyno will give different numbers on different days and "Pulls", it's the nature of the beast.

Enjoy the power it has a be happy is my motto.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Here is a link from the Motorcycle.com Comparison Review. 54 HP at the rear wheel seems low for the new V.

I think MOTORCYCLIST said 64 hp.
