Murdercycles! Rating 200 2009 Motorcycles By Safety - MV Agusta

 MV Agusta F4 1000 S 1-1 features a motor engineered as a 998 cc, liquid cooled, 4 - cylinders in line. The motor has a bore and stroke of 76 mm x 55 mm, equating to a compression ratio of 13:1. The engine cranks out a total of 166 horsepower. When a calculation is performed where that amount of horsepower is divided against the motorcycle's dry weight in kilograms of 193, a mass that equals 424.6 pounds, we end up with a calculation of pounds per horsepower, which is an industry standard manner of determining the overall real world power of the vehicle. In this motorcycle's case, the power to weight ratio is 2.56. With that figure determined, it can now be concluded that this bike has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

MV Agusta F4 1000 S is designed with an engine configured as a 998 cc, liquid cooled, 4 - cylinders in line. The engine is designed with a bore and stroke of 76 mm x 55 mm, which results in a compression ratio of 13:1. The engine generates a strong 166 horsepower. When this maximum power generation is divided by the vehicle's dry weight in kilograms of 192, a weight that is equivalent to 422.4 pounds, we can now calculate the ratio of pounds per horsepower, a fairly standard calculation in the motor vehicle world which will allow you to determine the motorcycle's actual performance on the street. In the case of this bike, its power to weight ratio is 2.54. Therefore, this motorcycle has earned a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

MV Agusta F4 1078RR bears an engine which is an 1078.37 cc, liquid cooled, 4 - cylinders in line. The motor is engineered with a bore and stroke configuration of 79 mm x 55 mm, which gives the engine a compression ratio of 13:1. The engine is rated for a maximum of 190 horsepower. When that total amount of power at maximum levels is divided by the motorcycle's dry weight in kilograms of 192, a total dry weight which is equal to 422.4 pounds, it is now possible to determine the ratio of pounds per horsepower, which is a good way to estimate the motorcycle's actual performance in everyday use. This bike's power to weight ratio is 2.22. This motorcycle is thereby generating a power to weight ratio which gives it a Murdercycle Rating of "A": EXTREME which means that it is unsafe for anyone except for highly trained professional riders with years of experience on major racetracks!

MV Agusta F4 Brutale 910 S has an engine that is set up as an 909.1 cc, liquid cooled, 4 - cylinders in line. The motor's bore and stroke is 76 mm x 50.1 mm, and has a compression ratio of 13:1. The motor powers the rear wheel with a total of 136 horsepower. When this output is compared against the motorcycle's weight in kilograms of 185, which in American units converts out to be 407 pounds, the calculation of pounds per horsepower is now possible: a measurement that is generally utilized to determine the motorcycle's overall performance. In this case, the power to weight ratio is 2.99. Therefore, it can be concluded that this bike has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

MV Agusta F4 S 750 is designed around an engine that is an 749 cc, water cooled, 4 - cylinders in line. The engine features a bore and stroke of 73.8 mm x 43.8 mm, providing a compression ratio of 12:1. The engine is able to generate a total of 137 horsepower. When this output is calculated to the bike's dry weight in kilograms of 191, which in Imperial measure equals 420.2 pounds, the pounds per horsepower can now be precisely measured in a determination which is a very accurate reflection of this particular motorcycle's total performance on the street or track. In the case of this bike, the power to weight ratio is 3.07. This final analysis shows that this motorcycle has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.
