I'd say that's world beating.
Yeah, as I said it beats all the bikes for which performance is not the main focus (and assuming those numbers actually materialize, which is yet to be seen, and that's only for the R model). So what?
Sport tourers are really not about all-out power, because if you start thinking that way then is the ZX14 a sport tourer? Slap some Givi bags on one and it'll eat the MTS-R for breakfast in a straight line or
in the corners.
