Ok maybe this is a stupid question (i'm not all that interrested in bikes) but why ius it that no HP or Tq ratings are given with bikes? They always give you the cc's but no definate power outputs. Any particular reason for this?

I don't think they do either.

its probably so you dont realize how much of a death machine your buying untill you pin the throttle :nut: :nut:
yamaha advertises some specs on certain bikes like the R6 with 120 hp but no tq rating

Where? 90% of the info given for bikes does not include output. Same goes for quads, the only known difference between a 600cc quad and a 400cc quad is that one has a bigger motor, and therefor is expected to be more powerful but output is never given, WTF is that?

I notcied that a long time ago too when I was looking for a bike. I ended up buying a bunch of bike mags and from there they listed the numbers.
