Mentioning the "no proof bullshit", how do you feel about Boss Hoss's posted performance stats?jstoner0007 said:I had to skim through most of the biased, no proof bullsh*t that everyones writing on here. Motorcyclecruiser.com did an unbiased road test of one of these amazing pieces of american muscle and heres what they said:
"the torque reaction of the V-8 makes a BMW's or Moto Guzzi's feel insignificant"
"quarter-mile times are only about 10.4 seconds. (The Kawasaki ZX-9R, the quickest sportbike tested by our sister magazine, Sport Rider, ran 9.99.) But the Hoss is going 140 mph and still in full song at the end of that sprint."
KEEP IN MIND THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN IN 1998 AND THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT A 355 HORSE POWER VERSION SINCE THEN BOSS HOSS HAS COME OUT WITH A 502hp Version.
For Handling they said " we anticipated all sorts of adventures in corners. We were therefore extremely and pleasantly surprised to discover that the Boss Hoss actually tracked pretty precisely and smoothly around as many corners as we could find in south Florida. It steered with no more force than needed for other "big" bikes. "
-for those of you that said this bike can't turn since when did a Hybussa become a handling bike? last time i checked they were good for one thing, running 1/4's at the track.
and they aren't $150,000 you can get a v8 version for $27,000
***So..please do some research next time if you want to make claims that are worth less then what I wipe my a*s with.
I don't think this amazingly engineered bike will beat a Hybussa but it will definatly look good losing and at least you won't ruin you chances of having kids while riding it.
Do you think more HP and torq applied to the bike's single 225mm width rear tire will increase it's 1/4mile time?
Boss hoss motorcycles are rolling novelties. I like them. I think they are really cool. They obviously have performance but are by no means a benchmark in any category. To suggest otherwise would be quite funny to a rather large group of seasoned motorcyclists who have ridden just about everything out there.
I don't need to ride a BossHoss to tell you that their own published stats are horse pucky. When a company blatantly lies like that to a potential customer, what message does that send to you?
