    09 HO vs 08 HO efficiency????

    sure would like to ride the new 2009 FXHO (1800cc without supercharger) Cant see it being much quicker than the 08 FXHO with the 1100cc engine though. What will be interesting is the fuel efficiency compared with my SHO. Any thoughts?

    On paper its going to be quicker midrange, faster topend, slightly better fuel economy at cruising, and much worse fuel economy at wot although still fuel efficient.

    Compared to the SHO it will have better fuel economy.

    and those are my thoughts.

    The new 09 HO tops out at over 63 mph according to some video. I'm real excited for this ski!

    It may very well be nearly as fast as the SHO. The supercharger on the SHO is their purely for marketing reasons and is running low boost along with low compression. That same motor without the supercharger, running higher compression could easily put out the same power.

    I know someone here said it before......Why only black?? The 09' HO looks to be a great package with 1.8....just can't understand the same color choice now for the the last three years.

    I wonder what the 09 FXHO w/RPM kit or Stage results will be? The SHO gets +3 08 FXHO gets +4 with full RPM so I guess we can expect 63 stock and 67ish with RPM. Maybe a stage 1 gets us to 70???
