Re: OFFICIAL CBR100RR SPECS
The power rating, 172PS, is expressed in a metric unit that's close, but not quite equal, to horsepower. It converts to 170hp, but that's the typical manufacturer's rating at the crankshaft. Allowing for 15% losses through the drive train, it should dyno at around 145hp at the rear wheel when the magazines finally get one to test.
As I wrote in another thread, the 395lb "dry" weight will become 460lb or so ready-to-ride with a full tank of gas.
