They didn't. The only difference between the 2011 and the 2012 is the frame color.

I'll start: I got one of the first ABS XCs delivered in the US, and it's been flawless for 9100 miles now.

Unless your 2012 is special and came with a silver frame

Doubtful - they need to stay under the 95 (ish) HP limit....

Don't forget the Eurpeans are on the metric system. So looking at dyno results and trying to make comparisons you need to be aware not only of HP taken at the crank vs rear wheel but metric versus US. HP is a calculated number based on torque that can be measured.

HP with a PS is a metric calc based on torque, measuring the ability to lift a weight measured in Kg X time, usually indicated on a grapth in Newton Meters (NM).

Their horses are smaller than ours.

My 2011 performs fine - but doesnt feel like 114 HP. So guess the 2012s must have turbos. Wa state titles don't have HP rating on em.

Nope ....... Flux Capacitors .........



Seriously - from everything I've read, they're 95hp. I don't own one yet, but will in the near future .......

What model Cycra's did you try? I was looking at the Cycra Pro Bend Center reach or the Cycra Pro Bends. The Moose's are also an option. I happen to like the deflectors.

From what I can tell with my dial caliper, the Nekken bars on the Tiger are 1 1/8" round in the center between the clamps, but then change to an oval just outside the clamp. The Pro Bend Center REach are only available in 7/8" or 1 1/8". Will these clamps work? What is the bar size at the end of the bar?

Thanks. But since there is a bit of an oval shape to the outside of the clamps, will a round 1 1/8 work ok? I'm hope it will. I'm gonna head to the accessory shop on Wednesday and check out some with the bike there to try them on for size. I'll report back.

For the sake of complete accuracy.......they are 95Ps ("Pferdestärke" [metric system], German translation of Horse power) which equates to 94bhp (brake horse power). Blame the unelected idiots in Brussels for all this confusion.
