Raw hp , No . But I know a guy that can on a moped! So a lot depends on rider. ( bounce /preload technique)

I know this sounds ridiculous, but my 87 xr250 has crazy power for an old four stroke, I could flip it over backwords in 3rd gear. Not that I would want to.

Well with Nitros and a good tire it should be able to.

If you want to do that just keep gearing it lower till you can-you could win a lot of bets that way!

I could get mine up in 4th with a little tug on the bars running 13/48. Wonder what it would do if I kept that gearing with the smaller supermoto tire setup ;-)?
