I am a bit out of touch with the motorbike scene, but in a recent review of a Honda Motorbike in the motoring supplement of a daily newspaper I was surprised to see the claimed output of the approximately 1litre bike engine being quoted as 175 b.h.p.
All through my motoring career 100 b.h.p. per litre was a sort of "holy grail" aspired to but never quite achieved in any naturally aspirated production engine. Can it be true that you can now actually buy a bike "off the peg" delivering 175 b.h.p./litre? or was this a misprint? (another bike listed for comparison seemed to have a similar "stratospheric" power output)
