I've ridden a 750 Magna and the XS will eat it for lunch. Can't speak for the Interceptor but if they consider themselves compatable you'll be dominant.

90 hp on a 1000lb cycle.....

Your XS1100 is a 90 hp motor, and was the fastest production bike from 1978 to 1983. It has more horsepower than either of the mentioned bikes and will scare you to death and leave the others in your wake.

Hi John,
unless your bike is only running on 3 cylinders (don't laugh, some have bought them that way and wondered what the hype was about) you should be able to outrun either of those machines in a straight line.
In the twisties, not so much.

I gotta disagree there. This bike will do anything you ask of it if your not afraid to ask.

It will come down to the rider

It will come down to the rider, if your XS is running right, they won't "leave" you A good rider with some Qrt experance can get sub 12's out of these old bikes

The V45 engine, so named because of the V configuration and 45 cubic inch displacement, produced 78 horsepower and could propel the Magna to a top speed of 240 km/h. The V45 Magna could do a standing quarter mile in 12.8 seconds which was Ferrari territory in those days.

Here is the Intercepter:

From Cycle June 1986:[4]

Curb Weight /W full tank Fuel: 505.5lb.
Standing 1/4 mile: 10.95sec @ 113.95mph
Fuel Consumption: 45 mpg
Range (to Reserve) 189 miles
Acceleration:
0-60mph 2.4sec

Fastest bike in the late 70's

The XS1100 was the fastest production bike ever made for a short time in the late 70's, till Honda took over in late 78 with the CBX, but hey, who want's to rebuild and adjust that many carbs

Late in 1978, Honda uncorked a knockout punch onto the world of motorcycling with the incredible six-cylinder CBX. An early-release 1979 model, the CBX was created with the inspiration and experience derived from Honda's all-conquering six-cylinder RC166 250cc Grand Prix road-racing motorcycle. Both the RC and CBX were the brainstorms of Shoichiro Irimajiri. When Honda unveiled the CBX, it simply exploded conventional notions of what a high-performance motorcycle could be.

With six cylinders fed by as many carburetors, and double-overhead cams operating 24 valves, the air-cooled 1047cc CBX engine pumped out 103 horsepower at the crankshaft. Class-leading 11.55-second quarter-mile times came easily to the CBX. It was the quickest, most powerful production motorcycle the world had ever seen, and an unbelievable technological achievement. With a sweep of its hand, Honda once again established total performance supremacy.

Yamaha

Honda didn't wear the crown very long, Yamaha took it back in just a few years with the V MAX Here is a pic of mine




"Launched in 1984, the V-Max became at once the ultimate hot rod, the fastest-accelerating road bike ever, sizzling through the standing quarter mile in not quite ten seconds. Ten years before, only specialized dragsters could accelerate like that".

Careful, you should change that quote to 'any stock HD', as there's an almost unlimited parts well for HD, and gobs of those are hop-up parts. My '93 1200 is putting 85 hp to the rear wheel (the same or more than a well-tuned XS) at 70 lbs less weight. There's some out there with big-bore kits, ported heads, etc that are pumping out over 100 hp, sometimes well over... and don't look any different than a stocker...

I've even seen a HD bagger that was capable of low 10 second quarters, fast enough to give any metric 'muscle bike' a rude surprise...

Yea

Yea, you can beef up alot of bikes, I think I remember someone doing that with an XS1100 back when they 1st came out, Ah, mid 7 sec. qtr mile if I remember right, world record at the time

"Jim Bernard just rode the XS11-based Ron Teson/R.C. Engineering Top Fuel dragster-which uses a stock Yamaha crankshaft and main bearings in its super-charged engine - to a new E.T. record with a 7.57 sec. at 184.95 mph pass at Indianapolis."

Not bad for the late 70's bikes

I will agree that the XS has a considerable amount of power, but scary it is not. I don't think you will keep up with the crotch rockets if they know how to ride. You just can't corner like they can. You may be able to catch some on the straights though. With an average sportbike rider you could keep up. For my self, i just can't see where the claim for all this power comes from.

Power for "IT TIME"

It had power for "its time", 1st production bike to break into the 11's, 1st modified to run in the mid 7's That was then, this is now, heck the car I drove to high school was faster then a new XS1100 in the qtr mile But it wasen't stock at all. In fact my M roadster strait 6 cyl, no mods, no turbo, no supercharger would just about keep up with an XS1100. They have electric cars and motorcycles running in the 7's today, but that is "today" That is why they call it "Nostalgia"
