Default RPM Comparison

Tried Searching for the answer here and couldn't find it. So I thought I'd put the question in a Subject line:

Does anyone know what the comparison in RPMs between a Spirit and a Sabre is at various speeds? I know the Spirit is supposed to be geared higher, so it carrys less RPMs on the highway. At least this is what people say. I'm wondering if anyone knows the actual numbers between the two at, say, 60mph. It's hard to know if the darn things don't have tachometers.

I don't know the RPM difference...but top speed on the Spirit 1100 in first gear is about 50mph. On the Sabre, it is about 45mph.

That's a pretty sweet looking heavyweight bike you have there. What kind of gas mileage do you get, and what is the size of the engine?

This is a pretty cool site. There is a list of bikes at the top you can look at and compare a ton of info. http://woodsware.aciwebs.com/gears/gears.asp
It doesnt have the Sabre....but it has the Spirit. If someone can give you the gear ratios you can fill that info in yourself and it will calculate it for ya!
