The product of the force, measured in Newtons, and the lever arm, measured in meters, equals Newton meters and is called torque.

this motorcycle , a 120 cubic inch original Harley-Davidson V2 made in the USA – 1,966 cubic centimeters displacement with the Austrian official blessing. The result is impressive: turning the throttle grip stretches the driver's arms so powerfully that a broad grin can hardly leave his face. The already mentioned 145 Newton meters are already included in the series trim of the power plant. Depending on the tuning and exhaust system, they can still be increased significantly up to 200 Newton meters.
