I have a question for a few of you knowledgable roadstar warriors out there. I am selling my 69 chevelle because i have recently fallen in love. No i would never sell my muscle car because of a women, but a motorcycle like the warrior, well, oh yeah. I'm heading down to a few local dealers to get the skinny on availibility and whatnot, but i was wondering if anyone knows the horsepower and torque ratings on a stock warrior? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

About 80hp, 105 torque stock. With a set of pipes, PC3 & air filter change add 10 to 15 to each number depending on the map you have in the PC3. You will need to open the motor for more & theres plenty in there, I think Bismark is making about 135 ponies. You could change the drive pulley for even more grunt but she'll smoke the rear tire in stock form. Look for 1/4 mile times in the upper 12's in stock form but she launches so hard you will seldom be beat from stop light to stop light. It ain't all about straight line with this bike, she will roll the corners better than any cruiser & the brakes are awesome. Good feedback to the rider & she don't do anything stupid. I had mine sliding sideways ala dirt tracker dragging the left peg when i hit an oil slick in a turn & she popped right back up when the rear tire got a bite. I'm pretty sure I would have been down on any other cruiser. Had a lot of bikes, cruisers & sports, like this one the best. Take one for a ride & decide for your self. Good luck.

I wonder what 1/4 mile times this bike would do after a few thousand miles. After all this is an engine with pistons the size of a 400Cu inch V8. Church, Th ebest it regitered on the Dyno was 131.

thanks everyone for the info. i stopped by a dealer today after work, and finally saw one of these puppies in person. I'm sold. So as soon as i sell my chevy, hopin to get $10,000 for it, which, coincidence, is about what they want for a '03, then i will be picking up my new warrior. I cant stop drooling all over myself.

oh and poncho, from what i've heard from a variety of people, including my dad who had a royalstar, before moving on to big dogs and american ironhorse bikes, i hardly doubt these masterpieces on two wheels will have trouble making the trip to the year 34, well... with proper care.

js,
You have to remember. I run in the Cool Mountain Air up here in New Hampshire. On a good spring day, I can run with at 40% humidity, unlike the thick southern air you have down in Florida. That humidity slows down the Warrior Beast. Bring her up here and feel her Roar! Did I say her? Wow! I got to be freezing my brain up here.
