Given that Kawasaki has just announced the new ZZR1400 with 192 horsepower, I am wondering, how much horsepower do you really need? We always WANT more power, that's why we buy more powerful bikes each time and/or modify the ones we have, but how much do we need? A good 500cc bike will out-accelerate most cars and anything over 750 (more or less) will blow any common car into the weeds. Touring and luggage-carrying capacity of modern bikes makes them a weapon on the highway and overtaking manoeuvers can be accomplishe with ease in almost every situation. Acceleration in a roll-on situation is awesome as well, so how much power do we need, and do we need a 200 bhp bike at all? Leaving aside bikes for track days where you could ALWAYS do with more.... Suggestions?
