Ok thanks we will see how good i am lolThere are other factors involved besides displacement and HP. Gearing, weight and more importantly, torque.
An EX500 is not a drag bike. It makes power higher on the tach and is more or less about getting around corners quicker. Call it sportbike lite.
The Africa Twin is more about sport touring with off-road pretenses. It will do pretty much everything well, but won’t excel at anything.
It isn’t a drag bike either so 0-60 times aren’t relevant in evaluating it either. Call that one adventure lite.
Which one wins in a drag? Couldn’t say. Not a match up anyone has considered until now I imagine.
Part of me thinks the Africa Twin but if the EX got a good launch at the right RPM with the right gearing it would be close. The EX might even eke out a win.
I just don’t think it’s a clear cut situation
