So in 5 years time...

In 5 yrs time will 230/240hp be the norm for Sport bikes???.. I believe that's an approximation of what MotoGp Bikes are putting out now and I bet 5 yrs ago they were 200hp??

Hard to imagine, but I guess 200 was hard to imagine then.
I want to disagree, but the historical statistics don't lie.
Onwards and upwards I guess...

Thank god for electronics.

Whoa, that would be an experience! I'm not sure what the point would be though with the speed limiter intact. Although, you would have a hell of a lot of tq and hp in the lower to mid rpm range. I don't use what I have now, can't even imagine what that would be like.

No, in 5 years time, most of our Panis will be sitting in the garage because we cannot afford to fix the out of warranty repairs, ECU, leaking cylinders, leaking forks, and then some stall all the time while others won't start after sitting for a few miutes

Let's see

996 has 138hp
999 has 145hp(increase of7hp)
1098 has 155hp(Increase of 10hp)
1198 has 170hp(Increase of 15hp)
1199 has 195hp.(Increase of 25hp)

so the next increae will be around 25-30? if so a bike with 220hp-230hp is not impossible. Let us just hope tha it will posess the low end grunt of the 1198.
Thanks from showerfan

all of that added HP....here is a fun little stat: in Germany today there are more paralyzed individuals from motorcycle accidents then there were in all of WW2.

so bring it! more HP for street use! death is actually cheaper so it may be a good thing.

most people up in here couldn't even ride a 916 to its limit, and that's like '94 tech! but hey 1armedbandit, if he's still alive, will be going like 210 mph on public roads while breaking in new exhausts and chips n shit...
