We've got the power?

Can't figure out what is wrong with 'only' 50Php.

My first Transalp had 55, my 2nd Transalp 48, and the last Transalp 600 (which I bought new in 1997) 48 Bhp. I really had lots of fun with that bike. That much, that I bought back a Transalp 600 again, 10 years after I left that bike.

Torque it the thing which is important. The Transalp 52 degrees Vtwin had lots of it (comparing it with other 600 cc bikes). Battling on steap, tight, twisty mountainroads, even 100Bhp+ supersport bikes could not keep up.
