\r\n The July issue of Motorcycle Consumer News contains an article discussing dynamometers. In a sidebar to this article they review a couple of smart phone applications that they say will provide an approximation of the horsepower and torque, along with some performance statistics for your vehicle, just by performing full-throttle acceleration. Attached are photos of two of the app reviews that sounded interesting and potentially useful for a motorcycle owner.\r\n
