Sounds a bit unrealistic to me, but maybe that's just me.
The 950 was carburated, 90 HP, and 407 lbs dry, and in 2007, so I don't think in todays technology with 1000 cc bikes easily making 180+ hp, that a 750 FI LC8 based engine wouldn't have any problem making 90 HP reliably. As far as weight, low 400 lb mark DRY
wouldn't be that hard either. Hell man, the 2012 990 Adventure R is 456 lbs dry
! ! ! Doesn't seem to "unrealistic" to me.
I'd be unstoppable if not for Law Enforcement and Physics !
When your 6'8" with a 40" inseam, the bikes that fit you are limited ! ! !
