    Question 0-60

    Hi all,
    Apologies if this topic has been covered on previous threads, (searched but couldn't see anything), but a friend of mine asked me last week what the acceleration time is from 0-60 mph. He's a car driver only and is obsessed with this particular metric.
    I said that I hadn't clue and that it's "fastest enough", but just so that I can satisfy his curiosity, has anyone timed this?
    Thanks!

    If he is concerned about 0-60, he probably needs to find another bike.

    5-6 seconds which is not very fast in the bike world. Then again this bike was never built for speed.

    A 0-60 mph comparision it's not a good measure for our bike. There are lot of bikes over there able to do 60 mph just in 2nd gear, and even in 1st.

    I agree with the comments above, your friend needs to look for a different bike.

    Any way, I would ask him the following question: how many times is he going to need the best 0-60 mph bike?

    my cbr can do 0-60 in first gear in about 3.5 second. Really though, I rarely ever need to go that fast. I did find one article that said the ncx can do it in 4.5 second which is still quick.

    I does not matter if she is fast, the NC700X looks fast.

    I believe it was the magazine Cycle World that timed a DCT version at 5.3 seconds and a manual transmission version at 4.7 seconds zero to 60 mph.

    4.7 second is about what a Nissan 370z runs.
