That's what I thought too, until I tried a bike with it, and it only had 92 hp.

Think of it more as like you're riding your bike, whatever the bike is, in
Touring mode, and you get the extra snappy Sport mode and more
aggressive fueling.

Heck, there's even 200cc scooters now with that stuff (called sport and
eco mode on Scarabeo 200).
