Yea unfortunately it’s a numbers game, a status thing - look at me my bike has xxx horsepower - and????? - My ATAS has 94HP and I have to throttle back in first and second to keep the front tire from coming to far up. It is what it is a ADVENTURE bike for trips and off road EXPLORATION - It is NOT a drag bike, GT, motocross, kinda bike. Yes, OK, it can be (and has been) “converted” to a rally bike.
Bottom line is: after the front wheel comes off the ground the rest of the horsepower is useless, unless you wanna do burnouts or constantly wanna overtake and pass people.
