That would 72 horse power at crankshaft
Where ever you got those numbers from is not a good way or even proper way to show power to weight ratio's
The proper way is to show the amount of weight per ONE hp.
On your first figure if you have 72hp and your unit weigh's in at 1596lbs. Your power to weight will be 22.16lbs for every one horse power.
While on your second figure it will be 23.43lbs for every one horse power.
This makes it much easier to understand and makes more sense.
I looked up Honda.
I don't own one but figured I would look
Nice haul Don!My friends 30 hp sxs has hualed 100's of tons of critters in Alberta and BC for 20 + years..
(Removed photo of 6x6 Bull Elk) in due respect too our friends privacy...
Its hard too spot critters with old eyes if your going too fast,,, perhaps theres benifits too slow...
If fast is a person's thing they make units for that range of folks,,, but a large segment of every day folks seem too do just fine in the slow lane...
