Cr500 makes 56hp low stock to 63hp with some cheap mods.
These bikes are used for hillclimbing for a reason with 70+hp highly modded.
If someone wants to run mine on a dyno I think you will see a solid 60hp.
The bike the cr500 replaced was a KTM dxc 550cc 2 stroke 1992.
compare to this graph:


12 grand and a 45 minute drive gets you best bike you can buy, without question.

Not only a cr500 will out perform new 4 strokes but also a "lesser"
KTM 380 will make new 450s look slow.
