BRP = 115 hp? This can't be right

8 posts in this topic

This ad popped up on the local craigslist... I can almost buy the 67 hp stock claim, but +48 more by uncorking? 115? Seriously? If so, wow. :applause:

2000 Honda XR650R - Serious Buyers Only Please

This 4-Stroke XR650R still has everything original, even the tires

The only thing ever done to it was that is has been what they call "uncorked"

Uncorking takes the original 67Hp (nice stock power, believe me) and adds 48Hp more by doing a few simple modifications. It now has 115Hp, a whole new bike.

Read up on it at: http://www.4strokes.com/tech/honda/uncork_brp/

This Big Red Pig is very powerful! No one EVER says anything different after they've taken it for a spin.

Less than 700 miles on it total (seriously). 675 miles (give or take a few) by me personally and the 25 miles or less (Probably Less) by friend test drivers

Very few wrecks on this bike and no wrecks required any tool to fix anything, in other words simple wrecks that gave me and the bike a few scratches and then we were back up and riding again.

I hate to sell but its time, this bike is from the Littleton Colorado area where we moved from 4 years ago. It was used a few times for trail riding in groups. The groups were mostly family members including young children. Since bring it from Colorado it hasn't really been riden more than a few mintues here and there (to keep it running nicely.

A test drive can be arranged for serious buyers that have a valid texas drivers license with them when test riding or a parent with a valid license with them.

$3999 OBO Must Sell!

This is pretty much what I was expecting to hear. I love BRPs, but not really in the market - just thought this sounded pretty ridiculous. I think 600 cc sportbikes can get up around 115, but they also have to turn about 15,000 rpms on 4 cylinders to do it.

My 380 2t makes right at 50 hp stock, which is why I could "almost" believe the 67 stock claim.

Yep, 38 bhp stock at sea level, 42 bhp uncorked, well tweaked with stock internals 48bhp, not rear wheel.

this guy is obviously full of himself, something like that! Price is high too!

So when you go to sell your bike, and you're writing your ad, just take those numbers and double them! No problem! :applause:

I really wonder what is going through peoples' minds when they do something like this... They obviously have zero business sense. I'd think they were just clueless, but the numbers are always skewed in their favor.

You know what they say "theres one born every day" which should be changed to every second! :applause:
