Default Stock Horsepower 1600 classic

Hey everyone i just had my 2004 1600 classic on the dyno after installing cobra speedster longs with a forcewinder air intake kit and a power commander ended up with 70.24 Hp @ 4500rpm and 87.83 torque @ 4000rpms. The problem i'm having is i can't find what she ran stock does anyone know what the 1600 classic ran stock on the dyno? Thanks everyone ride safe.

I don't know how much they might have changed over the years, but topspeed.com did a review of a 2006 vn1600 and rated it at 66hp. No listing for torque.

I found some specs for the 1500 classic FI at motorcyclistonline.com

Measured HP 54.6 @ 5000 RPMs
Measured torque 73.6 @ 2500 RPMS

These were measurements made on a Dyno so that is the HP and Torque at the rear wheel where it counts.

Don't expect the 1600 to be any better because they may have different cams to meet ever stricter emissions.

stock 1600 classic: 55.4 HP@4750 rpm, 81.5 lbs/ft@2500 rpm. these numbers are from the july 2003 Motorcycle Consumer News. You've made some impressive gains!

I think it's a strange question .
But..as far as I know..it runs a hundred miles at top speed.
Wanna go faster?
Buy some other bike.
This bike is all about character and touring..not about ultimate speed.

Do you even own a bike? Wanting to know the HP and torque of your motorcycle is not a strange question. It is a real world number that allows you to compare the ride you have intimate knowledge of with other bikes out there in the market place.
