Power to Weight Ratio
How will the 2018 Rebel 500 stack up against the 2018 Honda Shadow 750 in performance?
Letís use the Shadow Phantom 750 for an example VS Rebel 500Ö
● Shadow Phantom 750 | 40.5 Horsepower / 47.9 Torque / 549 lbs = Power-to-Weight Ratio .074 HP / .00015 TQ
● Rebel 500 | 44.9 Horsepower / 32.8 Torque / 408 lbs = Power-to-Weight Ratio .110 HP / .00014 TQ
When comparing their horsepower-to-weight ratio on the Rebel 500 VS Shadow Phantom 750 itís a huge difference but when comparing their torque-to-weight it does close up the gap slightly where the Phantom edges out but just barely. The Shadow would have a fighting chance at launch but once you get into 2nd gear and get moving the Rebel is going to pull away and widen the gap the faster they go. My $$ would be on the Rebel whether it be a roll race or from a dig.
