My S10 apparently punches out around 112hp but it’s the torque that I love – and that comes in strong just off idle. Love a punchy twin!

Without a dyno – it must produce that power at near it’s 7,800 redline but I’m never there. I live between 3-5k 95% (2k is enough in the slow stuff) of the time so what hp am I using – 70-80ish maybe. And of course that’s only accelerating otherwise I’d be speeding…
