Quarter Mile Times

Quarter Mile Times
…down the quarter mile (below). At the drag strip there are multiple times gathered in the quarter-mile. The delay in a rider's response to the green light is dubbed the reaction time. (There always is a built-in fractionally small delay or else the rider is given a red-light.) A 60-foot time is also registered…
2006 Kawasaki ZX-14 - Dragstrip Test
…name proud and demolishes the ZX with its stupendous 60-foot time, a massive 32% quicker. By the eighth-mile mark, the big Kaw's greater peak horsepower is pulling back time on the Harley, but it's not enough to beat it through the quarter despite going through the traps 9 mph faster. Kawasaki ZX-14…
2010 Kawasaki ZX-10R Comparison Street
…during aggressive stops. While some may like the feel we would like a little less slip. In our quarter mile acceleration test the Ninja managed a 9.878-second time with a trap speed of 144.2 mph. The time was just under 0.2 seconds away from the class-leading BMW, which proves just how fast the Ninja…
2009 Harley-Davidson Muscle First Ride
…flexes some muscle on the '09 V-Rod Muscle. The void between me and the far hill at the end of Infineon's drag strip was black and measureless, the quarter-mile strip sticky with high-grade NHRA rubber left over from the day before. I did my best to channel the spirits of Screamin' Eagle/Vance & Hines riders…
2002 Harley V-Rod vs. Yamaha Warrior
…like a full-on sportbike. Use all that Revolution power and the Harley will lay down quarter-mile times in the 11.3-second range at 115 mph. It'll take another second or so later until the Warrior cuts the timing lights in the mid-12s. The Yamaha's advantage in torque can't make up for its 35-hp deficiency…
2004 Yamaha V-Max
…their first try with the king of the quarter-mile is nothing short of spectacular. For those with short attention spans and a lack of patience, we'll get the big question out of the way. Yes, the V-Max lives up to its reputation as one of the sickest quarter-mile machines on the market, despite its age…
2010 Yamaha Star VMAX Comparison
…-earned 11.90 and 113 mph top speed. The VMAX plain hands it to the Triumph right off the line in the quarter-mile, confirming our on-road acceleration estimations. The VMAX, by the way, fared better this time around than the 10.85 posted in our 2009 comparison by Executive Editor and in-house ringer, Steve…
2004 Harley-Davidson Road King Custom
…enough power and torque to gratify any cruiser enthusiast, short of wiley power-cruiser devotees who expect nothing less than low 11-second quarter-mile times. Dropping the clutch and grabbing a fist-full of throttle is enough to get adrenaline going, and rarely, if ever, were we looking for more power…
Memorable Motorcycles: Honda Rune
…The first time the Rune does this seriously is at the joint between the concrete and Tarmac on the Interstate access ramp. The Rune skips - and my heart stops. A quarter of a ton of bike plowing into the guard rail - and I'm going to die with it! Slowly, over a period of maybe 30 miles, I realize that…
2005 Performance Cruiser Comparo
…-performance components like sportbike brakes and inverted forks. Together with increasingly larger displacements and a subsequent increase in power, quarter-mile times have dropped and top speeds have been raised. In the process, manufacturers have created yet another sub-genre called the performance cruiser…
