They have a lower HP listed for the R3 than I expected.

Yamaha 1 = [email protected],800
Yamaha 2 = [email protected],800

Kawasaki 1 = [email protected],000
Kawasaki 2 = [email protected],800

Both of the Kawasaki figures are close but the Yamaha figure is off by almost 10%. I wonder which dyno is correct? The variance from dyno to dyno, as far as I know, isn't usually that much.

I think they screwed up on the math, in both dynos the R3 had more power, and it weighs less (partly due to smaller tank).

Some other dyno video's on Youtube also show that the R3 makes around 37-38 hp. So did they do something wrong or is their something 'wrong' with their Yamaha, like bad quality control or a different break-in? 2-3 hp less is a lot of lot if you ask me..
