If I considered selling my 125 hp Yamaha FZ 1 to buy a 919 with 25 less horsepower, youd tell me the 919 would have plenty of power and that id be perfectly happy. Same analogy for the CB. On my FZ1 most of the hp comes on between 8 and 12k rpms. I personally spend 99.9 percent of my riding below 6k rpms. Fact of the matter is this 87 hp @ 7500 rpms Honda may actually be putting out more hp in the range I typically ride in, than my current 125 hp motorcycle does.
