I've tried to measure the 0-60 time on my bike, but can't really pull it off by myself. I can jump onto a 60MPH road from a hard turn and catch a [speeding] car in what seems like 200 feet.

Are there formal #s on the acceleration capabilities? Or, what's your estimation? (I did find a 83HP rating - not sure if it's real)

Don't know about a 90 but the 109 goes 0-60 in 3.89 seconds

No formal number I know of on acceleration but the rear wheel Hop figure is around 69 ish and torque around 83 ft lbs. This is measured at the rear wheel not the crank. There is usually around a 10% loss in power or so between the crank and rear wheel.

Here are some stats for the M90:

Top speed: 190km/h
Acceleration:
0-100km/h: 4.6 sec
0-60m/h: 4.4 sec
Fuel consumption: 5.5 litres per 100km, unleaded 87 octane rating

Hope that helps a bit :D

Man, what an amazing machine! I use 93 octane, per the dealer's advice. I can tell some diff between the low / hi-octane, but it's mainly when punching it at low speeds.

interesting how the 109 isn't a that much faster than a 90. Possible for a slightly modded 90 to beat a stock 109. Boy that would be a rough day for the 109 rider;). Both nice rides but gets old hearing some of the 109 guys talking down the us 90 riders. Oh well, thats just how some people are.

To 60. Then watch as the 109 gets smaller and smaller as the 90 runs out of steam.

Ive owned both, and really the 90 does not feel that much slower than the 9. I think you need a pretty long stretch of road for the 9 to become smaller and smaller.

What about a tre on the 90? Fair
Even without the TRE the M109 will do 235 KM/H. That's over 40 faster than the M90. You also have to look at where the rev limiter will top out in 5th on the M90. My guess is that it's nowhere near 252.

The M90 is based on the 1500 platform which runs about 85 HP at the crank whereas the M109 is about 130 at the crank. If you really want to find out how fast the M109 is I'd suggest you find a trusting friend and ride one. I've ridden the M90 and it's pretty quick but you'll not find it nearly as quick as the M109.

But guys ,(thats m90 and 109 guys) quite frankly who really cares and whos gonna do 190 or 252 kms and hour in normal everyday riding I would have got a 109 but it was just to big for me the 90 is juuuuust right,they are both powerful bikes and its pretty obvious that the 109 has bigger guns because its got more cc's but in the grand scheme of things as long were enjoying the ride the arguments are null and void :p

OK in Americaneze that makes it:

Top speed: 118.06MPH
Acceleration:
0-100KPH: 4.6 sec (100kph is 62.14MPH)
0-60MPH: 4.4 sec
Fuel consumption: 42.77mpg, unleaded 87 octane rating
Theoretical range: 203.19miles

You will notice that the acceleration time for 0-60mph is .2 sec faster because 100kph converts to 62.14mph as noted above.

Don't let it bother you. They talk down to other 109 riders as well as you.

I've owned both and currently have a 9, so I speak from experience of about 5000 km's on the 90 and 2000 km's on the 9

Great! When you hit 80,000 on the 109 call me. I've had about 800 on the M90 because a buddy of mine had some serious drive train noise at lower RPM's. I dunno if the dealer fixed it or not.

I've stated facts only. I haven't seen a M90 quarter mile time yet or a top speed run. And personally I really don't care.

Carnivore - You're right dude. The bike 98% of the time is ridden at the speed limit and at that speed we're all riding on two wheels.
