Hi there I am interested to buy a Honda S2000 but want to know more local information. What I can get is all oversea resources. Can I know how much this vehicle is selling right now. What is the latest model and the specs like ? TQ notworthy.gif

reprhasing - weedy weedy weedy torque LOL LOL LOL

I checked, 207Nm at 7500rpm.

I think what Honda is trying to do is, make as much torque and make them last as long as possible at higher rpms. This way, the can make 240hp from 2 litres.

Eventhough Vtec kicks in at 6000rpm, the torque needs dometime to build up. That's what I think.

Is the 2006 model any good? Heard they bump up the displacement to 2.2 litres and lower the famous 9k redline to 8k, but with a higher torque curve.

I thought the pre-2006 models look better... unsure.gif don't see much s2000s around though... rare car.

Funny, they didn't call it a Honda S2200.
The 2.2 one is here? I thought only in USA?

Yeah it was originally introduced in the States. But I read in Wikipedia that Honda decided to make the 2.2 liter model the only S2000 they produce from now on. sad.gif

Honda Singapore carries the S2000. But all I ever see here are Mazdas, Mitsubishis and Subarus.

We were referring to the weeedy torque at 7000RPM. Anything below that is too low to even consider as weedy...

That is not what Honda is trying to do.. that is what Honda HAS to do to make power. All NA engines produce power based on how high they can get their RPM to max out. The only reason why Honda can make over 200HP is due to the fact they can keep engine efficiency up at high RPMs without compromising lower RPM with their VTEC system. They have no choice. RPM X Torque = power. Typical example would be F1 and motorcycle engines... the high RPM makes all the power.

Americans take the easy way out.. BIG DISPLACEMENT...

There is no point carrying it in Malaysia. It's just a matter of economics and 'supply and demand'.

If they bring in the S2000, there is no demand for it from people who can afford it. Those people who demand it cannot afford it. So there's no economics here. Hence no S2000.

They kinda tricked the engine into making that HP. laugh.gif But a little correction, RPM is a small factor into making HP, it is torque.

I agree with you, "They HAVE to do it" to get 120hp/litre. laugh.gif
