I think that is a very very very sweet looking bike. I am looking forward to seeing some mag articles pitting it against bikes like the SV1000 and the Z-1000 and such.

it does kinda grow on you doesnt it? im still trying to figure out why the didnt make that windshield alittle more visible and with some more substance to it. i just looks stuck there..maybe put a nice little fairing on it, nothing big, but either way, i think its kinda bad a$$ looking...

Where is the article you're reading? If you have found some magic way to increase 50-70 HP by remapping and bypassing Cali emissions only, without any other mods, I want to know about that.

First off 30 HP will get S motor to 200HP
BMW is setup with strick emissions settings, which also includes restrictive catalytic converter. You do the math will removing cat and remapping gain any HP on a choked emissions motor?
