Tug of war

Tug of war between a Royal Enfield and a KTM Duke 200. The Royal Enfield 500 has more than double the torque of the KTM, so it is unclear what do these tests accomplish. The KTM looks like it fares worse, but that is just due to the bike geometry with a higher center of mass. Both bikes spin their wheels, so clearly they are not using their full torquing capacity.

 Here's one with a bodybuilder, even less meaningful, and potentially more dangerous.

  1. It may seem unfair to compare them, unless we consider the differences in the RPM bands, peak power, peak torque and gear ratio. Well, even though they may (or not) eventually lead to a similar performance as far as those variants are accounted, it'll always feel like comparing apples with oranges. BTW even though I like the Royal Enfield, I like the KTM too.
