"The fuel injected engine on the 2008 and 2009 models has a power output of 114 kW (153 hp) at 8,800 rpm and produces torque of 136 N·m (100 ft·lbf) at 6,200 rpm. The ram-air intake on the 2010 model increases power to 117.6 kW (157.7 hp)."

Is this correct?  I thought all C14's had ram-air.  HP numbers are pretty high too, aren't they?  Otherwise, great page.  Did you build it?

PS: I noticed a significant omission, which we need to try to get corrected.  They don't mention that the Red '09 was the fastest color.

Actually, anyone can change Wiki pages.  I've done a few but not for our bike.  All of the bikes have ram-air.
