Default 0 60

it will win against most cars adn loose to most motorcycles, but it

is important for merging,. It's fast enough to merge and overtake

big semi's , but I always wish , even though its pretty heavy, it

was a little heavier when passing a semi at 85 or 90, a few times

I backed off when passing a semi at that speed. Just as well stay

behind him, after all hes doing 75 or 80.

Motorcycle Consumer News timed a 2001 Volusia doing 0 - 60 mph in 6.22 seconds. The quarter mile was 14.44 seconds at 89.41 mph.

Check out their web site for a Performance Index of most motorcycles on the market. You will see that the Volusia will hold its own with some cruisers with twice the displacement.

Well, okay .... I got to wondering about 0-60 when the town's hippie in a 1980 Subaru wagon beat me at the light. However, I did shut down a cell phone soccer mom in a minivan.
