    ...and every wedding features those vows of being faithful yet well over 50% of them end due to that promise not being kept in the real world.

    I'm guessing this will be the same - NOWHERE close to 100ft lbs - ANYWHERE on the S1000RR. No chance they get over a 20% increase in current output when peak HP figures are only listed as roughly 4-5% over the '18 spec bike.

    Having rode the former generation, I am highly positive that new bike will kick ass! I bet a 12 pack on this YL! A quick reflash and exhaust, we talking 215 + horses! This is whole new bike.

    Considering pump gasoline is only ever going to produce a max of 85 ft/lbs per liter, that would be amazing. lol

    LOL you're right. My mistake. 113 NM @ peak power, which is about 84 lb-ft. 100 NM around 5000 RPM, can't wait to see the thing on the roller. Only bike I am excited about. Like the new V4 from Ducati but afraid of maintenance and resale value. (Toy bike)

    Take a ZX14R for a spin if you want to experience insane midrange torque. I dare you to go WOT in 2nd gear
