You may be wondering: what fuel do motogp bikes use? The fuel in motocross racing bikes is usually 87-octane. The higher the octane, the better for 2-stroke bikes. Lower octane fuels tend to detonate too easily. One fuel that works well in hopped-up two-stroke engines is VP-110. The MXA mixes it with pump gas and recommends mixtures ranging from 25/75 to 50/50.
Honda introduces fuel-injected NSR500
Honda introduces the fuel-injected NSR500 motorcycle, a 500cc single-cylinder V4 motorcycle. The NR500 is notable for its experimental underslung fuel tank and single-crank V4 engine. The single crankshaft helped reduce friction and increase power, but was not a match for the Suzuki and Yamaha V4s. The first NSR produced 144hp, which was impressive for its time.
The H-VIX motorcycle features a variable exhaust power valve and an upside-down fork based on the NSR500 Grand Prix bike. It has an updated engine and a more streamlined look. The new bike also has a more powerful balance shaft for more rider comfort.
The NSR500 debuted in the 500cc class in 1984. The bike was lighter and more compact because it was built with a single crankshaft engine. Though its unorthodox chassis design plagued it during its first season, the NSR500 redeemed itself in its second season. It was also equipped with four 36 mm Keihin carburetors.
Honda introduces a supersport bike, the VTR1000SPW, in 2000. Colin Edwards rides it in the World Superbike Championship. Later that year, Honda’s VTR1000SPW also wins the Suzuka Eight Hours with Toru Ukawa and Daijiro Kato. A year later, Honda welcomes a new star to its racing team, Valentino Rossi. His NSR500 finishes second in the 500 World Championship. Other Honda achievements include a second consecutive 250 MX world title for Frederic Bolley, and the first of four back-to-back Trials World Championships for Dougie Lampkin.
Honda continues to dominate four-stroke racing. The RC45 continues to dominate the premier class constructors’ championship. In the 125 class, Honda is represented by Emilio Alzamora and Alex Criville. Honda machinery also wins the Suzuka Eight Hours and the Daytona 200.
The Honda NSR500 is a legendary motorcycle. It was introduced to Grand Prix racing in 1984, and won more than 10 500cc world championships from 1984 to 2002. With over 100 wins, it has become one of the most dominant forces in modern Grand Prix motorcycle racing. It also won the 1989 500 World Championship, which marked Honda’s third victory in the 500 class. It is also a great example of a two-stroke V4 engine.
Despite its new engine, the NS500 is also a powerful and reliable machine. Its success in the 500 World Championship is the result of the ATAC exhaust system, which Honda developed on the NS500. It is a product of the HRC philosophy of developing machines that perform well in all areas. The NS500 was successful in motocross, with Freddie Spencer winning the first Honda two-stroke Grand Prix race aboard it. It also gained a World Trials Championship title with Joey Dunlop. In the same year, the RS850R V4 four-stroke was introduced, bringing Honda its fourth road-based TTF1 championship title. In addition, the production of the RS500 GP motorcycle began.
During the 2006 World Championship, the NSR500 won 13 of 15 GPs. Its success in the 500 World Championship helped Honda win its tenth Constructors’ World Championship. It was also a huge success in America, where Privateer John Ashmead won the Daytona 200. Jeremy McGrath and Stefan Everts also won back-to-back 250 MX World Championships with the CR250.
Fuel-injected NSR500 motorcycle is first raced in the United States. A year later, the fuel-injected NSR500 is ridden by Mick Doohan in the 250 World Championship. It also won the Suzuka Eight Hours and US Superbike championships. Jeremy McGrath continues to dominate the 250 US Supercross. The NSR500 is the first motorcycle to use the electronic two-stroke fuel injection system.
