Why are they quoting it as 158bhp, when EVERYONE else says it's 160bhp? Ride mag do have a habit of doing this; I wonder why?

Including BMW in the technical spec:    "118 kW (160 hp) at 11,000 rpm"

They are fools. I want my 2bhp back! :745:

I was surprised to see that adding the Akra silencer adds a whopping 0.8bhp! I'm still getting one though! :008:

It is the Ride road test.

I posted the Bike road test in a separate thread.
