Re: horsepower of vn700?

Don't know for sure where I got this info, but I think I read somewhere that the HP for the 700 Vulcan, which is what I own, is somewhere around 50. I think it may have been in a review of the Vulcan somewhere. Wish I could be more specific.

Try BIKEZ.COM lots of info on almost every bike. I have not looked for the vn700 but if anyone has it they will. Good luck.

Re: horsepower of vn700?

I have it in kW, and PS? I don't know how to convert it. It varies by country, so here are the US numbers:

VN750 : 48.5 kW (66PS) up to the A9 model
VN700 : per the manual appears to be the same.
VN750: A9 and up: 44.0 kW (60PS)

A1 1985 VN700
A2 1986 VN750
A3 1987 VN750
A4 1988 VN750
A5 1989 VN750
A6 1990 VN750
A7 1991 VN750
A8 1992 VN750
A9 1993 VN750
A10 1994 VN750
A11 1995 VN750
A12 1996 VN750
A13 1997 VN750
A14 1998 VN750
A15 1999 VN750
A16 2000 VN750
A17 2001 VN750
A18 2002 VN750
A19 2003 VN750
A20 2004 VN750

Talking Re: horsepower of vn700?

How in the manual do they state it is the same? I find it difficult to believe that there is no loss when you drop 50 cc? My manual doesnt ever acknowledge the 700 that I can find other than an occasional mention.
bikez.com overlooks it as well.

would be cool if you were right, but it is hard for me to accept that, when stroke is the same, compression is the same, and carbs are the same, then something must be lost, unless, it really is a 750, and they just cal it a 700?
and stamp the side as such.
