That's great. Lots of power.
My 1299 with Termi and rapidbike did 185rwhp. So it's good to see a jump over that.

Take it back tomorrow and it may be +10 or -7. It's all relative to the day's ambient
As long as it fuels nicely through the range, the rest of the numbers are talking points only.

Bikes typically see a 10% lower wheel-hp than crank-hp. So theoretically the bike should make 203whp (225-10%).

Ducati always overstates their crank-hp though, so it isn't too suprising.

Honestly though I wouldn't read too much into it. That's a lot of power, and the V4 delivers it with a very nice power curve. Custom tuning will also unlock more power as well.

Possible you're losing through the soft tyres too, remember that when you're in the pub

I heard there was a software flash, I think a race flash or something like that to unlock all the extra horses. Any idea if that's true? If so, has that occurred already?

Yes it comes with the exhaust.

I was planning to take my bike to the Dyno sometime next week but I donít think itís worth it anymore.... the numbers are very consistent in the low 190ís

Yeah I watched a pommie video on YouTube where they get 188 or something like that. Still plenty.

Real test is a roll on test in different gears versus different bikes.
I ran my “low” powered R1 against 2 different Aprilia factories 2018 models.
The R1 positively outpaced them both by a good margin.
Point is, on paper they should leave me looking for parking.
My guess is the R1 has a better graph as a whole, even though peak is less .

I wouldn’t judge the v4 ducati just by max hp. There’s a lot more to it.

I wonder how the numbers are affected by 6th gear having a higher redline. Standard dyno procedure is typically 3-4th gear, whichever is closer to 1:1 ratio I believe, but 6th gear on the V4 provides another 1krpm to the redline. These dyno readings are saying mid 180's horsepower for a 13400 redline, when the 6th gear redline is closer to 14500. Maybe that's where the much higher readings (like from MCN and MotoRapido) are coming from.
