    Videos: What a Difference a Turbo Makes; 310R vs. FZR SVHO



    In case you weren’t aware, we’re living in the middle of a horsepower war. Kawasaki was first to come out of the gate swinging, punching out 250 ponies back in 2007. Next was 260 and a square 300 horsepower in 2011. In 2014, Team Green dove into the 300’s 1,496cc supercharged engine and dramatically improved internal oiling capacity, opening up water journals and dropping intake charge temperatures via a new composite air intake and separate intercooler water passage. The result was an added 10-horsepower as well as greater efficiency.

    Likewise, 2014 was a big year for Yamaha with the introduction of the Super Vortex High Output performance package. Similarly, Yamaha greatly improved their SHO plant by increasing cooling capacity, redesigning lightweight pistons, increasing the supercharger’s volume and upping boost pressures. Dropping internal temperatures, increasing boost upped the newly coined Yamaha to a dyno tested 260 ponies. Not exactly the sky-high output of the Kawasaki, but well enough to get the jump on the brand’s rival, Sea-Doo.

    Yeah gotta luv that poor guy on the Turbo Ultra 310 with the Hydrodrag frogman seated position...trying to squeeze out that 1/10th mph vs the Super Fast FZR Turbo as it casually rips forward..

    Ultra gets an A for effort!!

    Yeah I'm a little confused too,in the Vid in the beginning he's says " my 2014 310r R&D built Turbo like my FZR " then he says " obviously Supercharged"...

    I remember Sambo had Turbo on both the Ultra and FZR I believe...

    I guess with having so many Turbos it can be confusing..

    It is a bit confusing. I think sambo shared the video on here before he put a turbo in it. Could be wrong, though.

    That's why it pays to read the whole article. In the video, he says that the 310R is turbocharged. He misspoke and even says so in the video's description. We make a note of it in the story.
