A. It isn't easy to find information today on what Yamaha had originally given for the HP ratings of these V Twin Viragos. But with a little determination and a lot of help from "makeityours" and "MagnumRockwilder" on the Virago Tech forum, I have put up a list of known information here. It is taken from 2 different sources; Motor Cycle News "road test", and Cycle World magazine.
|XV535||45.5 bhp @7,500rpm||34.5 lb ft@6,000 rpm|
|XV750||51.8 bhp@7,000rpm||43.5 lb ft @5,500 rpm|
|XV920||No available data||No available data|
|TR1 (Europe xv1000, 981cc)||56.5bhp@6,500rpm||53.8 lb ft@4,000rpm|
|XV1000||61 bhp@6,500rpm||57.8 lb ft@5,000|
|XV1100||54.1 bhp@5,500rpm||54.2 lb ft@3,000|
It is worth noting that a 1980 Swedish publication, 'Motorrad' rated the TR1. (xv1000, 981 cc) at 70bhp (this information and link submitted by Swedish member "lassesand" from the Virago Tech forum.)
