Peak power is 15krpm. Add another 1k for over rev...

So it's surpassed GP bikes (in terms of over rev) and getting closer to F1 cars.

You cant compare the revs on a 600 to the revs on a liter. The pistons are smaller and lighter, of course it can spin faster.

For years, GP bikes tended to rev more than street literbikes, their revs were similar to 600. So I wasn't comparing in term of power curve, just the revs.

And todays MotoGP bike is still comparable to a 600 (r6) in terms of revs.
Dont forget that R6 peak power is around 14krpms, which make that stratospheric redline a whole lot less impressive.

Well R6 claims peak HP at 14.5K, after which the over revs will flaten and maintain the peak power, which I'm guessing in reality the peak power HP would drop some but still allow the rider to maintain the pace out of the corner. It's not practical for long straights, but it does eliminate the need for upshift through those short straights before another corner. This is still ingenuity on Yamaha's part, considering on all other 600's over revs end at 1000 rpm earlier, while Yamaha is still pumping power.

It's that sort of thing which made first-gen R6 fast when it came out. Considering my bike ('99 CBR600) made more HP than '99 R6. But with 12.5 peak power and 13.5 redline, F4 ran out of steam. Both making high 90s HP at the rear wheel (F4 making a couple more ponies), while R6 putting its peak hp at similar rpm range, still carried about 85 hp well into 15K redline.

Getting back on track, EBoz is riding for Yammie Superstock for 06 and doing a one off ride for Formula FX at the Daytona 200. In 07 Yammie is suppose to be back in Superbike with EBoz. EBoz fans stay tuned.
