100-120HP is my magic number, but I don’t do the really technical stuff, and clock up a lot of road km. More than 120 and I’m liable to get into trouble that I didn’t intend on. Less and I get bored.

It’s also how your HP is delivered. CB919 probably has the least, then the R1200GSA, then the 1090R, from smoothest to punchiest as well.
