    Bump...
    Not much happens here eh.

    With reference to the KTM outback rally thread, been meaning to report,

    In repeated drag races (standing start, rolling start from 30, 60 etc) the good old Super got the jump on a 1190 each and every time, right up to about the 150k mark where the extra 55 hp of the 1190 would come into play giving it longer legs.
    Funny.
    And the SE still sounded 1000x better.
    pops, Flexo, splinters and 1 other person like this.

    As you know mate I have both and I reckon the 1190 eats the 950 on the bitumen in a straight line. On the dirt the lighter 950 would get the jump and then the 1190 won't catch it till the wheels stop spinning.
    Like you said probably at about 150.:imaposer:imaposer

    Mine has been sitting for a while, so I pulled the carbies and am doing a bit of a cleanup. Time to put her back on the road.
