Using ZX14 power mill as a donor, these numbers are realistic. If indeed it will boast these figures, it will redefine the sport touring class, leaving FJR300 and the newly introduced BMW K1200GT quite far behind.

if that is, sure hope they work out that dip at 3500rpm. assuming it keeps the 14's low end power control feature, there woudl be nno reason for a dip.

The first question that comes to mind is.... WHERE did you find this?

Did you run across it on another web site? If so... gotta URL for it?

Unless the source (actual folks who made the dyno run) can be verified as credible (or credible enough), it's sorta hard to think of this as little more than another internet rumor. Anyone can create a graph and type in DynoJet, etc, etc..... not saying this is the case, I'm just saying there's an awful, AWFUL lot of internet speculation about this bike.....

That having been said, if the numbers are accurate, then we're gonna have one serious-ass sport-touring machine on our hands!

113ft-lbs of torque.... damn, that's going to make it a challenge to get decent treadlife out of the rear tire....

Those numbers make sense - detuned hp and increased torque.

That chart seems quite different from any other chart I've ever seen from DJ...format is not famiar to me...the numbers on the TQ curve seem rather odd too...and it's doubtful that these numbers would be published or leaked anywhere so far ahead of the release date...I dunno...just seems like someone made up some numbers and posted them...but that's just my opinion...I'm with Warchild on this.

Further, I would have expected the the torque and horsepower curves to intersect around 5250 RPM as usual... not 5800-ish RPM as shown....

Good point warchild. Torque always equals HP at 5252 rpms, just the way the math works out. That image must be fake or doctored.

very observant guys...and B14's right...there can be no other way...it's got to be 5252 or it's a fake, not to mention the phoney blue highlight dots...

Too bad. I thought it looked a bit fishy myself, but couldn't put my finger on it. The 5252 crossover should have been a giveaway though, didn't think about that when I saw it.
Warchild - found this while doing some Google Image searches for Concours14 and similar terms.
Hopefully the real numbers will be similar, albeit probably a bit lower, my guess will be high 140hp's on the wheel and 105'ish max torque. But the shape of the power-curves will be at least as interesting as the max numbers.
