175 hp version motor?

Back in 1978 when undersigned turned 15, he got a 50 cc Zündapp German moped from his father. The intake was choked to assure max. 1 hp due to Swedish regulations for youngsters riding without need of a driving licence. It was really popular to drill the intake from the awfully small couples of millimeters to some real centimeters, replace the carb and get 5 hp instead of only one. Imagine the smile on our faces and the thrilling risk of getting caught by the unforgiving BMW R100 riding highway police officers equipped with the small tool consisting of an about 6 mm steel ball and a thin steel wire. They passed it through the carb into the cylinder to get you busted. (No, it's not a joke, it's true. If you got busted more than once => one year delay in permission to get the latter automobile driving licence))

And now it appears this issue repeats itself and we get a decompressed 1200 cc. What a disappointment! There is simply no such thing as enough power!!

I guess it may be impossible to order the new adventurer with the "real and unchoked" motor with 175 hp due to KTM's and seller's legal responsibilities...and so forth.

Anyway, do you think it would be technically easy? Simply bring over the motor and the control module? Or is the other electronics perhaps incompatible with the race bike's ECU?
