    That's not an "R" and a stock 06 is NOT putting out 187@the wheel.

    Kawi claimed 187 hp at the wheel... Im guessing FBC is just going on Kawis specs.

    At the crank is estimated based off actual BHP... Its not testable. Im 99.44% sure Kawi was all about the 187 at the wheel when the 14 came out.

    I'm gonna see what I can find. I wasn't into bikes when the 14 first came out, so I honestly don't know.

    I honestly could care less, I thought that you could tell I was trying to sound like a four year old but you kept playing along. But Id like to see the page in the big book of knowledge that you found that says every manufacturer goes off the crank. and like I said ive never seen a * The ridiculously high values of horsepower that youll never beable to use in your life time are based off the crank. at the bottom of the ad..
