I dunno, the TT-R125 certainly is down on power compared to the Rancher, but it's got practically nothing for weight. I'd bet that a race between these two would be close, but I think if the TT-R had a light enough rider, it would win in a drag.

I don't own either of these, but my neighbor has a Rancher 4x4 ES, and I know that it's got a good amount of power, but it also weighs a LOT more than this little tiny bike. I think the race would pretty much depend on the weight of the rider on the bike...

im betting on the rancher. it all comes down to power in a drag race and apparently the rancher has more of it. campy had they right idea with the rider weight and bike weight thing but that woud only matter when it comes to top speed. and their is a limit to this but i own a rancher 4x4 es as well and what i go by is this, get low and lots of weight is good as long as you dont go too far. a fully loaded front rack will help get power to the ground too.

UrbanCowboy, I think you may have it backwards. The less weight something has, the quicker it will accelerate. It requires more power to accelerate the Rancher up to a given speed than it does the TT-R125, because the TT-R weighs so much less. Acceleration = Force / Mass, so the more mass you have, the more force is needed to obtain the same acceleration.
Also, if the Rancher is 4wd, nothing will help you accelerate harder than by shedding the most weight you can. Clear the racks. Take them off if you really feel you need more of a weight loss. More weight WILL help get more power to the ground, but the amount of power you'll get to the ground won't counter the effect of adding more weight. Besides, after the tires stop spinning (which the Rancher doesn't do a whole lot of; don't forget that my neighbor owns one), all the weight will do is slow your acceleration.
