    Default Very cool...

    Nice presentation of the performance of the new Ryker both the 600 and the 900. Thanks for the leg work and the video with the spec's. Think this makes me a happy camper with my old RS sm5 106 HP ....

    Looks like the 900 is the way to go. Thanks Martin.

    Thanks Martin for taking the time to show this info.

    Disappointed in the results for the 900 Expected about 10mph more.

    Old member, looking at the possibility of purchasing a Ryker. Comparing the 600 and 900 top speeds from online videos. Have a look at this one. I did not study it in detail, but it appears that he topped out around 126mph.

    Sales guy told me today he thought the 600 would do 90. After watching this 900 do 126, that seems more believable.

    EDIT: I guess it's KPH. not MPH... My apologies. Still a good video though.

    Makes me glad I did not wait for the Ryker. That seems really slow.

    At last years Spyderfest , " Yazz " ( ie. Joy ) & Her hubby …. VERY GENEROUSLY rented the DRAG track in Robbinsville as a gift to that years attendee's ….. Un-fortunately bad weather canceled the event and the track had already been reserved for it's regularly scheduled events, so another date wasn't available that year during Spyderfest ………………… It may happen againthis year at Spyderfest this year ……… if so it will be very interesting to see the new Ryker's run - keep your fingers crossed ……………… PS , I haven't seen anything about Spyderfest on the Forum YET ??????? …… Mike .

    My Silverwing scooter is faster than the 900 Ryker.

    I pretty much doubt it. You are basing this on a video from Europe. They may have different engine settings. The 900 I rode was very quick on acceleration. On his previous video he said he was scared to go faster.

    You can doubt all you want. In his video, 0-100 KM or 0 to 62 MPH was 8.6 seconds for the 900. The Silverwing will do 0-60 in 8. They can be modified to have faster acceleration if you change out the variator rollers but top speed will go down.

    Silverwing engine is rated at about 50hp, but the bike is lighter at about 540 lbs wet and has one less wheel to spin. It has a much narrower front end with good aerodynamics vs the Ryker that has much more cross section and no windscreen to smooth out the airflow. Add to that the Ryker has to spin a shaft in addition to the cvt drive belt. Silverwing top speed rated about 105mph, but for the Ryker, the only number I can find is what this video is quoting, about 97 mph.

    It's all about power to weight, thrust vs drag.

    ☝️Me too , my GS is not as quick as some sport bikes I’ve owned but I sure wouldn’t want to give any performance while going to a single seater

    Like I said if you go to his PREVIOUS video he said he backed out of it because he was scared to go faster. It would be interesting to have a side by side drag race though.
